    1. The fact that one of our two national parties would stick with a leader who dispatched a mob to ransack the Capitol in hopes of overturning our last election is an acute national problem — a cancer, in fact

      This provides another central idea. It is not just about how Trump affected America during his presidency, but the future after it. He compares it to cancer, a metaphor that portrays the gravity of the situation. He also shows that he considers the Trump situation as worse than any of the other situations discussed by calling this an international emergency while deer and SF were local.

    2. That is a lot like Trump and his followers, whose attachment to him has become so cultlike that every other Republican leader knows that challenging Trump is potential political suicide. The result: He, too, has no serious predators

      The writer makes his second main claim in the article. He shows why Trump had as much power as he did and why no one was taking action against him. He builds on how this negatively harmed the country. He beautifully makes a metaphor to the deer, for the deer would be Trump and the garden it ruined would be America

    3. That is a lot like Trump and his followers, whose attachment to him has become so cultlike that every other Republican leader knows that challenging Trump is potential political suicide. The result: He, too, has no serious predators

      This post further emphasizes the analogy of Trump's presidency to the deer. He introduces the central idea that Trump's immense power is partly due to the American people. No one truly took action against Trump, and the Republican party for the most part, protected him. This allowed him to act "stupid" as he said in the previous paragraph.
