And plenty are "getting under Trump's skin." They range from Barack Obama to Alec Baldwin.
The mechanism is effective, observed the panel on the "Gillmor Gang." Donald Trump reacts. Sends an enraged tweet. And there is tremendous satisfaction that the forces of supposed righteous indignation got The Donald very very angry.
In the schoolyard, the victim would flee in tears. Share the misery on social media. Or, also could commit suicide on Facebook Live.
However, as a form of political protest, getting under the skin of the Trump Administration isn't changing much. If anything.
During the counterculture of the late 1960s and early 1970s, the theatre in the streets had been a force in ending the Viet Nam War, getting more African-Americans admitted to well-regarded universities and encouraging the investigation of Richard Nixon.
But, one wonders if getting under the skin of any Trumpette is going to push the ideology more to the center? Or, more importantly, reduce the seeming abuse of power. Hey, so far, even the Ninth Circuit appeals court couldn't do much. And that represents our legal system.
Researchers who have a creative streak might begin a study on how the contemporary way of political protest is a lot of fun. But that's about all. Theatre in the street has degenerated into taunting by adults who never quite were totally socialized not to bully anyone. Even the powerful.
