Donald Trump's Rude Awakening

The last few weeks have been a bit of a comedown for Donald Trump. After an historic campaign where he beat the odds and attracted huge adoring crowds, he now finds himself under siege in the White House, unable to go to any large city in the US without inspiring huge demonstrations, mocked by comedians and journalists in mainstream and social media, and regarded with fear and contempt in many of the nations the US once viewed as allies.
Now you might say that Mr Trump should have expected this rage because it was his own words and actions which provoked this reaction, but it is one thing to expect this level of protest and another to experience it. Never in all his years as a developer, entrepreneur, media personality, and public figure, had Donald Trump had millions of the people in the streets denouncing him. In fact, before he ran for President, it is hard to recall a recall a single incident where as many as a hundred people picketed one of his appearances and even during the Presidential campaign the size of the crowds cheering him far exceeded the size of the crowds attacking him. No more. Donald Trump is now hands down the most unpopular person in the United States and the most unpopular person in the world.
Yes, many of the people who voted for him still support him and even love him. But for the most part, they are not the residents of the nation's largest cities, or the Washington DC metropolitan area. Indeed, in the two cities where Mr Trump now lives, the people who hate him far outnumber the people who love him and take every opportunity to show their displeasure in the most public way.
I don't care how arrogant or narcissistic you are, that can't feel very good.
is this what Donald Trump bargained for when he began his campaign for President? Or when he was showered with love during his campaign?
I doubt it. And how he is going to react, as the hostility, mockery and even ostracism further escalates is anybody's guess
