how the campaign not ‘normalize’ the president is driving him bonkers


“resistance” comes in many forms. in discussions about how to deal with the fear and alarm ignited by donald trump, no word has been used more frequently than “normalize.” democrats and progressives engage in almost daily protest rallies to defy trump’s agenda. but perhaps the most successful component of the anti-trump movement has been its willingness to challenge his legitimacy. the popular slogan and hashtag “#not my president” doesn’t mean that people think the november election results were rigged, but that trump’s electoral vote majority doesn’t translate into a popular mandate and that his views and policies don’t reflect the popular will. the anti-trump movement refuses to “normalize” a president whom they view as an authoritarian, even a neo-fascist, who violates that basic norms
