This, from the comments, is the best description of the post-election Trump I've seen.
"But frankly, what I see right now is not an autocrat consolidating his power around a cult of personality. I see a MASSIVE power vacuum opening up in the executive branch and Congressional lifers swooping in to capitalize. Trump doesn't know, and doesn't care, what's going on, which means people like Paul Ryan, who DO know and DO care, see their chance to do what they've always wanted. Do you remember Trump running on abolishing Medicare? Neither do any of his supporters. But since Trump is an empty suit and a bad hairpiece, suddenly Medicare repeal is item 1 on the agenda."
