    Yes - Peach. It was quite revolutionary as I saw Trump as bringing a 'new' aspect to USA Politics that hasn't been seen before. It is quite obvious that a lot of Americans can't quite understand or deal with such a big change.
    Look at it this way and alas, I can't simplify but by bringing 'race' into it:
    For a very long time in USA Politics (possibly right from the start): It has been ruled by x4 types of males - the 'Blue' Brunette male, the 'Grey' Raven-haired male, the Black male and the Yellow male. Now we have a 'Red' Ranga male and maybe there will be a 'White' Blonde male, a Brown male and a Green (Olive) male???
    The reason why there is difficulty in accepting 'Red' Ranga Trump is because the MEDIA is based on the first four males and in fact, you can see that in nearly every movie, tv series, etc - any Blonde or Red Haired male is depicted as Gay, Racist, Evil, Nazi, Villan and weak. Only Flash Gordan had a Blonde 'Hero', but the movie itself was entirely Gay. Lord Of The Rings (New Zealand) depicted Blonde Males (Elves) as somewhat 'grander' in all the right ways and with no 'token Black Man'. This Movie had a lot of reluctance to be maid from its USA Companies (Warner Bros), because of this 'cultural-racial' depiction going against all that it has done and the movie was almost never made.
    So in essence - the Media feels that it's Empowerment over the USA has been compromised and even threatened by the likes of Trump coming in from the 'other Team'.
    The Media was also seen 'Grooming' the USA Public through its movies and marketing by removing female role models from all their Art merchandising and marketing while promoting females in Political power via TV series and movies.
    Sorry if I'm a tad harsh here, but that's what it looked like from beyond your borders.
    Media V America.
