Well, one definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting a different result. Maybe they’re insane?
Otherwise, I suppose we should assume they’re accomplishing a desired result. What is it?
What I see is a big bubble of hysterical end-of-the-world types who are locked into cognitive dissonance over their belief that the election of Mr. Trump is a cataclysmic threat to humanity, or the world, or something (besides their own mental state).
Each time the MSM comes out with another cycle of “Trump bombshell”, it gives these hysterical bubble-heads another dose of confirmation bias, letting them put off the final reckoning when they have to admit “that apocalypse is inside my mind!”
