‘A raft of new polls show that some of the most hard-core Trumpsters are starting to get a clue’ nonfiction author Timothy Egan wrote in a New York Times op-ed published Friday – adding that the revelation is akin to ‘discovering that climate change is not a hoax when your town is under water and all your commander in chief can do is throw you a roll of paper towels’.
