The Genius of Donald J. Trump
Those of you who know me probably aren’t used to hearing anything positive about Trump.
However, there is something that he seems to do better than anyone else. His “Genius” trait.
Trump never explains anything he says or does. He lets others do it for him.
Can it be that simple? Is this the key to his success?
Republicans in government and his supporters constantly “explain” what he means when he does or says something stupid, ignorant, racist, weak, etc.
His detractors “explain” what is wrong with him. Mentally. Strategically. They even try to figure out if he’s “playing 3-dimensional chess”… and in doing so, freely give him his next move to make.
His lawyers “explain” away his legal problems.
His accountants “explain” away his money problem.
And behind it all, Trump explains nothing. Ever. No apologies. No explanations. No reason for his insane, bizarre, mental meltdowns and verbal diatribes. Nada.
And why should he explain anything he does or says? He’s got all of us doing it for him.
He is, in essence, the Schrödinger’s cat of politicians: simultaneously a “Stable Genius” and a “Babbling Imbecile”.
And so he shall remain until the box is flung open…
DJT is, therefore, a President of interpretation. He is not real; and we need to identify and respond to his invisibility by ignoring everything he says, or at least demanding that what DJT says should be held to a standard of appropriateness – what of the things he says is actually legally allowed Times don’t change that much.
I wish we could ignore him, but he and his followers are doing real damage. That at least must be taken seriously, even if what he spouts is utter nonsense.
It’s like a President by Committee.
The voices in his head make him lie…
