I stop short of using the term ‘clever’ but one can see from this opinion piece in the UK Guardian that there is a distinct hidden agenda, a distinct cleverness in that the repulsive machinations of trump are in fact a ‘clever’ assault on everything good, wholesome, borne of experience and hard won rights, as if the clown and his crew are chipping away long into the night on whatever can be corroded or made substandard. As with Stephen Miller we have a Dominic Cummings.
trump laughs at the Law, barges belligerently Roy Cohn style through established measures and ‘civilised regards’ and he cares nothing for ordinary people, merely something to score points from on social media. I think at this point a low budget biopic would serve very well at providing illumination on this low-life, theres enough crazy truth to preclude ever having to ‘invent’ anything. His manner of movement, his body language tells so much and could be used to explain quite what the monster is in the White House.
trump tries to give the impression he is riding along with the common man but in fact its their back he is riding, its how he ‘got his ticket’ into the White House, an invented and phoney posture, ‘a put-on act’ to capture votes. It sickens me for instance in the UK when post election there is the analysis, the wringing of hands at the need to re-jig to alter the message, surely parties and MPs as we have here in the UK should be thinking of what is best for the country, not what will catch them votes and give them a ride into power.
Its very clever how trump has done this, knowing that a veneer thin gloss and brag will get him through any encounter, whether its face to face or social media in any form. As with all good con-men he makes you feel he is your friend.
