Since the election, @ThePotatoWalrus has really been drinking the cool aid, he thinks Trump is superior in every single presidential quality. His posts also come off more as a troll than someone with a true independent mind. Even Obama supporters were often critical about things he did, and saw weaknesses in certain aspects of his ability.
