No, but certainly a coping mechanism is necessary. Many are turning to religion or spirituality, which can be flip sides of the same coin, except religion gets corrupted, while spirituality cannot be. I think how “true” one’s spiritual practices are depend upon how effective this coping mechanism essentially is. The Buddhists hold, for example, you have to be at peace with everything you experience, even that which you just described. It is a tall order, but maybe Buddhist have an edge in surviving Trumpism. Just a thought.
