I'm pretty sure this is 100% incorrect.
My view is that Trump won because WWC - who don't spend much time online at all - finally jettisoned the MSM narratives and went for the one guy who they (wrongly) perceived to be an "outsider". Trump won in rural rustbelt counties that had previously gone Blue. Those folks don't give a damn about "memetics", or tweets, or "infowars". They are tired of being portrayed as racist because they agree with the (elementary) notion of a national border. They are tired of being portrayed as bigoted because they don't like the idea of a man dressing up as a woman and using the women's restroom. And they bought what the snake oil salesman with the audacious blonde comb-over sold them.
Frankly, the alt-right had little to do with it, from my view. And that's a good thing, because those folks are gross.
