I alone have solved (the question of 2016)

The nature of Trump’s “threat” hasn’t altered in character since the first moment we found ourselves forced to take him seriously. The more seriously we are or have been forced to take him, the greater the threat, and it works the other way as well. Yet at the same time, or following as a result, the more seriously “we” take the threat, producing a decreased apparent likelihood of his victory, the less seriously “we” need to take the threat, or the less real the actual threat, so the less serious the threat itself.

In other words, the more seriously we take Trump, the less seriously we find ourselves having to take Trump, and the less seriously we take Trump, the more seriously we have to take him. Got it?
