As proof, it’s obvious Trump staffed his administration with idiots. His daughter Ivanka is an idiot. His Vice President is an idiot. Pence has never had an original thought in his head. He’s Sarah Palin with a penis.
I could go on and on but the real premise here is even the folks we think of as “smart” are just as easily manipulated by Trump. Wall Street is the best example. The stock market lives and dies on a Trump tweet. Late Monday evening Trump tweeted he is ending stimulus negotiations. The market dropped. Hours later Trump tweeted he would approve a stand-alone stimulus. The market is back up in premarket trading.
These people are supposed to be the smart money. Yet Trump manipulates them at will. Now Trump is holding the stock market and economy at large hostage because he’s down in the polls and his reelection chances are slipping away. Some are saying anyway. But Trump has a plan.
Proving that a simple tweet from his can create or destroy wealth is a time-honored tactic of Trump. Blocking stimulus is a far more dangerous tactic of his, and he sees time running out. Stopping any help for renters or landlords so evictions become commonplace actually helps Trump. Homeless people aren’t going to vote. Even if they do Trump cronies can sue to disqualify their votes for not living at the address on their voter ID cards. Landlords will vote for the guy who helped them evict renters that couldn’t pay their rent.
This election isn’t over by a long shot. The real answer after it’s over is whether or not it shows America is the America we all want it to be. If nothing else we can say we had a good run.
