Their attacks include questioning his mental health, repeatedly comparing him to Hitler, declaring him a fascist, insisting he’s a modern-day Manchurian candidate, that he’s a traitor (because Russians!), and on and on.The striking thing about the nature of the attacks is that they’re all personal.

And what could possibly be the result of creating that toxic environment?
