Donald Trump Blesses the US with the Gift of Truth in Advertising

In Donald Trump, America has a president whose tone and personality perfectly embody the hateful aggressiveness of the nation’s foreign policy. Maybe we should view that not as embarrassing, but as fair warning to suckers who might fall for the high-flying rhetoric of our rotten nation.

  1. The ironic part is that Trump – itching to be admired by elites rather than just by unwashed masses – could very effectively defend each of his programs by simply tweeting:

    “I’m only building on what Obama did: that’s not change, that’s more of the same. You loved him, so why not love me? Unfair!”

    or better yet:

    “Obama gave you everything, but I’m giving you even more. You’re hot for my tax cuts and your offshore bank account is swelling. Where is the love? Sad. “

    Then again, this would not go over well with his déclassé base. No truth, no love, poor trust fund reality tv pres.

  2. Dammit, Ted – you’re right again. I hate that. I still believe in the founding principals of this country – but I’m no so naive to believe that we actually follow them.

    Trump took took the lid off of the festering cesspit which underlies Republicanism. He’s exposed the worst of what USA has to offer the world (former Preznits tried to be discreet about it, fooling no-one except American citizens.)

    It is within the realm of possibility that he may inspire a liberal revival, but I’m not going to bet on it.
