I'm pretty sure we passed the event horizon of hypocrisy a while ago and are now in a space outside of the laws of reality.
What an interesting way to describe the problem!
I think you've found the key - when you pull on reality as hard as the Trump administration is, there will be a snap. And the people that are on your side of the divide, the chasm between you and the opposition only grows wider and wider. You become a Galapagos of partisan selectivity where you cling to every little factoid that besmirches vaccines, every example that global warming is a hoax, every indication that the Bowling Green Massacre happened proves the American carnage. On the other side? Who cares. They're the traitors, the takers, the filthy liberal fascists and their safe spaces.
But you're beyond the event horizon. Your numbers are your numbers and as the difference between what is and what you say grows bigger, the harder it becomes to bring new members across the barrier.
