… he is a hollow man.
Little better than a wind-up clockwork toy, yet the GOP remains so silent, at least from what we glean from news in the public domain, but I bet theres some frantic cellphone tirades at the idiocy of what we see and hear. Its like a bunch of kids that have found a way too powerful motorbike, they can’t believe their luck or how powerful the thing sounds. Really, really, yes! So much is placed on an invented public profile, he gives ’em what they want to hear. Fascism always works in this way, riding a wave to power, yet it always goes wrong and I haven’t got the patience of fifteen years to see this work its way out again.
An instance yesterday, following the postal bombs trump at that evenings rally in a most hollow tone “We must behave ourselves” … even a child could see through that one, a most hollow tone. Yet he still launches into an ungrounded and idiotic kidney punch at the Free Press. Postal explosive devices in mainland USA are exceedingly rare, I suspect a dirty tricks department.
Here we see below the Fool intending to leave the room when he’s forgotten the task in hand.
A clever fool, think on the graded incremental approach in rhetoric, very finely judged, perfectly paced. Theres lots of chatter behind him, when a so-called President relies on cronies and ‘interested parties’ for influence then how can he ever in any shape or form be considered fit for Office. He feeds from his rallies, note the handpicked stooges to rear, all very clever but after all djt is a seasoned reality tv performer, likewise Ivanka.
Its Fascism straight and clear and I reckon his supporters would be hard pressed to define its meaning ie its loss of freedom, individuality, possibilities for self improvement, total eradication of anything pertaining to justice, decency, honesty and clear open thinking. All Fascism as it evolves its power and State control has always pandered to the perceived ills and sleights of the struggling working person or those in a precarious position. They like how he assaults established norms, authority. Its like “I’m gonna vote for that trump guy – he’s gonna give me what I want” …. and most certainly he will not.
postscript … these are indeed disturbing times. Increduously trump would like to angle for a news media that only spouts forth his own moronic ideals or those of his crooked old white men followers, GOP and otherwise. How can any form of voter base follow anyone that is so remote from real people, from reality? like taxes are not for him. Calling ‘home’ a gilded cage atop a skyscraper of his own making ? Or ‘home’ can be any number of golf courses and commoners being charged annually $400k to be allowed entry to Court. Never knowing the ordinary progresson of life, I would say in their new role inhabiting the White House ‘actors playing a part’ to the core. These are indeed strange people. Jareds father himself serving time for vote rigging aong other things. A strata of high income society that would better have remained concealed, djt in his imbecilic belief he had a chance at POTUS 45 has himself indeed turned over the rock and shown us all what crawls around beneath it.
