Social hierarchies are part of social animals. You may deny the fact that you are in a social hierarchy, and defy those who point it out to you. However, you are in a social hierarchy. It's informally called a "pecking order," because it was observed and described first in chickens. Bees have social hierarchy, chimpanzees, silver back gorillas, etc. So do humans.
I understand this, because when you take a business degree, you have to study psychology, sociology, and organizational behavior as precursors to scientific management.
I point out Trump and politics in a grander picture of a "pecking order." In the media and academia, the best president you could have was someone like Obama. So they never attacked any of his transgressions. They hate Republicans generally, so they always face attack. If you ignore the sum and substance of the attacks and observe them from a purely behavioral perspective, you are witnessing an attempt to enforce a pecking order.
This is why the Bob Michels and Bob Doles of the world proved to be somewhat useless, along with their phony conservative counterparts in the media. In a much more abstract sense, it is just a pecking order and it is getting disrupted.
