“In the eyes of Trump’s base, whatever [he] is doing is the right thing, or he wouldn’t do it — it’s just that simple. Trump’s base is not holding him to a wall —- they never really did. The media has been holding Trump to a wall, specifically the right-wing media that Donald Trump watches every hour of every day.”

This is the Black Mirror-ness of our situation: Trump plays not to his actual base of pod people, but to the media that controls them — and him. So Fox News is not the propaganda arm of the GOP — it’s the policy arm.
