Very interesting at the moment and fair I think to say that now just days away from his inauguration, that the gloves are coming off on both sides.
There has been a lot of classic misdirection over the last few days, of Trump against the Democrats, against over Republicans, against the Intelligence Community, against the media, and also against Big Pharm and the Defence Contractors.
It makes for a very good bit of pinball style knockabout on TV, but it becomes a rather more stark focus, if you simply say Trump vs the Establishment, in all its forms and branches.
Since November, it as almost been like a phoney war. I was not surprised that he dropped the "Lock her up" and "Drain the Swamp" mantras. I was not surprised because I do see how this period between election and inauguration can be very dangerous, with the President elect not in control of the levers of power and vulnerable to those that still are. This therefore is a time for soothing and reassuring noises, rather than brash offensives.
He made it though quite well, by making a number of appointments that pleased various lobbies and making attention grabbing noises off, which had little real significance.
Obviously the establishment has not been convinced and have been busy with the shredders since November.
I further have no doubt that this is a final shot to try and blunt his initial days in office. I suspect the next few months could be pretty brutal as President Trump looks for payback!
