Whisky Prajer has a great post--Hypocrisy Exposed-- about how Trump is causing some weird political shifts.  (How did the Republicans become the party that endorsed Russia, and the Democrats are now the ones saber rattling?)

My own addendum to that was the TPP.  Before Trump, liberals were supposed to be strongly against it.  After Trump killed it, I started seeing a lot of liberals suddenly upset at the loss of TPP.  (Both in the professional pundit class, and amongst my own Facebook contacts.)

But just to be clear: We liberals hate TPP, right?  Remember, it was supposed to be really bad for the climate and was going to doom our planet?

For this one thing, at least, we should be thankful to Trump, right?
