He is a genius. Don’t you agree? Who would have ever thought? Not me. He has handled The Media, The Fourth Estate, with adroit aplomb. He’s played it/them like a fiddle every step of the way and his refusal to participate in the upcoming Fox News GOP Debate, the 7th GOP Debate so far, is yet another master stroke of his dumb-like-a-fox genius.
Keep in mind, I am not politically ideological in any way. I don’t vote. It’s a waste of time. Either way you lose even if your vote counted, which it doesn’t. But it doesn’t mean that I don’t find politics an interesting topic to discuss — because I do find it an interesting topic, when I can opine about it unconventionally at my own venue without having to read the nauseating back and forth, Left and Right, Liberal and Conservative propaganda vomited by the various apparatchiks scouring the internet in an effort to keep the sheep in one of two pens. This is apparent at most every, if not every, online comment section you visit. It’s old. It’s worn. It’s boring. And It’s All Lies.
The 2016 U.S. Presidential Election is particularly interesting this year versus years past when it was always a yawn or a snore, precisely because of The Donald. He”s made it worth tuning in every now and then. Not for any length of time, but just enough to get a laugh or two, maybe even three or four laughs sometimes. And not because he’s a buffoon, but because he’s making everyone else look like a bunch of buffoons trying to decipher his buffoonery. He has quite literally sucked all the media oxygen out of the air and, as a necessary result, every other candidate is suffocating. He hasn’t had to pay for any of this media coverage whereas his opposition has had to spend handsomely to get even a small percentage of the airtime Trump has managed to get for free by being daring and controversial. He acts as if he has nothing to lose. And maybe that’s the key. It’s the trick. I know in years past when I played golf and I was having a terrible round, psychologically, I would give up and not fight it any longer or try to salvage the round. I no longer had a score to protect — I had nothing to lose. And it was at this point that I would start playing like a pro and the birdies would start rolling in. That’s how Trump’s playing this 2016 Presidential Election Match — like he has nothing to lose. And maybe he doesn’t — have anything to lose. Something to consider.
This is not to say that I’m a Trump fan and that I’ll be voting for him. Like I said earlier, I don’t vote. I don’t care. I won’t be part of the charade. But I will enjoy Trump’s antics because, as you may or may not know, I can’t stand The Media. It’s filthy, disgusting, duplicitous propaganda for a braindead audience that can’t tell Shit from Shinola or Up from Down. Trump is giving the so-called Fourth Estate hell, and I’m enjoying every minute of it because it/they keep coming back for more punishment and each time he smacks them down with barely any effort. He’s setting them up. They’re too easy. He is just what they deserve and there’s nothing better than seeing people, especially the soulless creatures that comprise The Media, get what they deserve.
There’s a poll below. I’d appreciate it if you participated. Thanks in advance for those who do. Also, let me know what you think about it in the commentary. Love him or hate him, you have to admit, he’s a genius.
