There are still people who don’t understand that Trump uses ambiguity and free association on purpose?
Wow. Just wow.
Hint: Trump’s not the stupid one here. He sees perfectly well when the person on the other side of the table is trying to lead him into a trap, and evades it, not by putting down some other marker that will come back to haunt him, but by painting a word picture that can be interpreted essentially however he wants, when he decides to offer an interpretation later. What’s especially funny is that he admits that’s what he’s doing.
We’re so used to the hyper-focus-grouped politicians’ banalities—finely honed, very precise words that mean absolutely nothing—that we can’t even recognize good ol’ ambiguity and obfuscation, the shrewd businessman’s refusal to be cornered, when we see it. And boy, do we see it a lot with Trump. Good thing? Bad thing? I sure don’t know. Different from the usual in politics? Absofreakinglutely
–While the media hyperventilates over the possibility of Trump refusing to yield power peacefully if he loses the election (wait a minute, how is a defeated Trump supposed to order his troops not to let Hillary inside the White House?), it’s clever as well as only just to let them and their audience stew in discomfort.
After all, it’s damn sure Hillary Clinton will never be my sovereign leader. The reality that the corrupt system has deliberated destroyed the nation, by creating multiple peoples and creeds in its place and delegitimizing itself through outright corruption as well as willful disobedience to the will of the people, has resulted in this grand display of Freudian projection whereby the media now accuses Trump of playing Caesar.
Of course, for my money he’s welcome to. We don’t have a “republic” anymore anyway. If one cannot be restored peacefully, then I guess we’ll have to settle for something else–something better than a Zionist banana empire at least.
