Re: the 1800s confidence man
I think I had reported in the very beginning that Trump was running a campaign of momentum. That's exactly what he did, if you dominate the headlines you dominate the election. Notice how in every debate he would always inject one really controversial remark that came to dominate the headlines for the following week. Hillary was constantly being faded into the background by all the attention the media gave trump. Trump's magnus opus was his claim that the system was rigged.
From Ancient Native American literature, the confidence man always restored something for the victims of their con, to illuminate, hence the confidence man was elevated to the height of myth, a type of messianic, liberating figure that has more value and meaning to those he cons than they do to him.
