Remember back in 2016 when Trump said, “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters, OK?” What about when he was at a campaign in Nevada and said, “I love the poorly educated”. Out of the numerous lies this man has told, these are two statements that were actually true.
From the very beginning, Trump knew what he was saying. He knew the base he was creating. He was molding a mass of people that would believe anything he says. He knew the demographic and what his target following audience should be.
So in a nutshell, he created this huge base that will follow him into a burning house. No matter what he does, no matter what he says; his base is loyal and in their eyes, he can do no wrong. He turned this base against the media and brainwashed them into believing that only his words are the truth. That’s why I call him teflon Don. He’s made it where he’s practically untouchable.
You can define him as a dictator because all signs lead to that. In reality, he’s a cult leader. The definition of a cult leader is “A typical cult has a charismatic, unaccountable leader, persuades by coercion and exploits its members, economically, sexually or in some other way.” The definition of dictator is “a person who behaves in an autocratic way.” So he fits both definitions. I call him a demented cult dictator.
So with all this in mind, it explains why Trump can do no wrong in the eyes of his base. We can also conclude there’s no changing the minds of Trump supporters. So you can save your breath when arguing with a trumpanzee. It’s useless. They’re loyal and will go to the ends of the earth to support their leader.
Imagine if Secretary of State John Kerry gave a DNC speech on a diplomatic trip. Like Trump’s Secretary of State.
What if Michelle Obama changed Jackie Kennedy’s rose garden then gave a DNC speech there, dressed as Fidel Castro. Like Trump’s wife.
How about if Barack Obama turn the White House lawn into a stage where he accepted the nomination. Like Donny did.
All the lies, corruption, racism, attacks on women. The numerous laws that have been broken. His continual personal attacks of military veterans. And, this latest bombshell of deliberately holding back vital, life-saving information, during a pandemic, only to save the economy and his reputation. You would think that would be the last straw. What do his supporters do? Fully support him.
To be clear: When Donald Trump said he didn’t want to cause a panic, it wasn’t the people he was worry about upsetting, it was wall street. Unfortunately, his cult followers just don’t get it and they never will.
So there is no doubt in my mind that Trump can go out on 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and his base would stand up for him. They would not only stand up for him, they would cheer him on and state he was “standing his ground”. He would become more of a hero and they would be emboldened and motivated to support his campaign.
This is what happens when you create a following of the “poorly educated”, the uninformed and the gullible. I don’t say this as an insult, I say this as a rude awakening for this country. Things are not going to change unless the country, as a whole, makes this change. The only way to do this is to vote this maniac out of office.
