And thus validate the narrative of elites working against the interest of the Common Man(tm). Allows for an easy Them, allows for easy claims of the entire system being corrupt... It's an easy solution to a hard-to-define unease of people feeling that they are not being heard, even if they are.

And sure, it will bite in the longer term, because the string cannot remain taut forever. Do you honestly think that those who utilise this strategy of blaming the elites will care one whit about that?

And there are plenty of ways he could screw with the judiciary, especially if he can get Congress on board with his plan. Just imagine him coming up with something similar to FDR's court-packing plans, except he actually succeeds in making it happen. Or he could pull an Andrew Jackson and just outright ignore the Court and do whatever the hell he wants.
