The real reason why Trump is so unhinged lately.

Ya know, when you were a kid, your parents always told you that the only to handle a bully was to stand up to the bully. That was easy for your parents to say, because they weren’t the ones who were going to get their ass kicked in the middle of the school yard. besides, the real problem was never the bully himself, it was the preteen cro=magnons the bully was flanked by. The air of invincibility was in the strength of numbers, and the bully knew it. Donald Trump is a typical New York bully. When he started his run for President, he was the first one to pick up a gang to surround himself with. But not just any gang, all politicians get their “base,” but there was something different about Trump’s base. If a Marco Rubio dropped out of a race, his “base” would find somebody else to support. If anything happened to Trump, his base wasn’t going anywhere. Ted Cruz proved early that he was too tactically stupid to be president by continuing to coddle Trump in hopes of picking up Trump’s supporters when he finally flamed out. When faced with resistance from the teachers, Trump used his base until the principal gave him her lunch money. As president, Trump used his base to keep his GOP congress firmly in line. There was no sense in trying to defy Trump, since the bully had already dispatched 16 brave souls who had dared to stand up to him in the primaries. And while Trombies may not have been the sole reason that all of these Senators and Representatives got elected in 2016, Trump turning them against the incumbents might well be a reason for them to be defeated in 2018 or 2020. So, the congress joined the base standing beside Trump. Trump became invincible, at least in his own mind. There was no reason for him to change, either personally or politically, since his original antics were what was so popular with his base, and got him elected in the first place. He was free to say or do anything he wanted, since nobody in the congress would dare to stand up to him, for fear of being thrown to the Trump wolves in the next election. Examples were made of apostates like Jeff Flake and Bob Corker, making their independence an issue with the base that made it impossible to be reelected. The bully was unfettered. Look, Personally I have no doubt that Trump is both paranoid as well as delusional. But it was Trump himself that broke the spell of invincibility without which no bully can survive. Every president loses seats in the first midterm of his presidency, and Trump had set himself up for, as President Obama put it, “ a shellacking.” An intelligent politician would have stayed out of the midterms, taken his puppy whupping, and blamed it on the candidates. But not Trump. He let his mania override any good sense he may have. He pitted his cult of personality against all of the odds, and he lost. He forced himself into the midterms, and he made it all about him. And he still got vaporized. Trump hysterically proclaiming a beautiful “red wave” was eerily reminiscent of Hitler screaming about the “phantom army” that was only days […]

Pete Buttigieg Gets Standing Ovation On Fox, Trump Loses It

The envy is strong with this one. Apparently, Fox News is moving a little too far away from the Dark Side for Trump’s taste, because they actually invited Pete Buttigieg to do a town hall Sunday. Buttigieg was well received, standing ovation no less,  and Trump just can’t stand the out of town team scoring points on his home court. So of course he went to Twitter to sulk. ….who got them there. Chris Wallace said, “I actually think, whether you like his opinions or not, that Mayor Pete has a lot of substance…fascinating biography.” Gee, he never speaks well of me – I like Mike Wallace better…and Alfred E. Newman will never be President! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 19, 2019 Chris Wallace probably likes Fred Trump better, too. At least Fred actually knew how to make a buck, Donald, all you know is how to lose one. And watch what you say about who “will never be president.” Those were the exact same words applied to you, they will come back to haunt you. Trust us, we know. But we understand how it must feel to listen to an intelligent, articulate man, who actually did attend the best schools, Harvard and Oxford, and who does know all the best words — in seven foreign languages — and you have a 200 word vocabulary in your native tongue. Moreover, Pete Buttigieg actually served his country in the military, while your daddy paid some quack in the building to write up a fraudulent medical report about your non existent bone spurs, because you’re a coward. We get it, that Mayor Pete is a real Christian and you mocked communion, calling it, “my little wine and my little wafer” — which makes sense since you handled them with your little hands and little brain. You are a Christian in no sense of the word, merely a figurehead for corrupt tent revival televangelists, who sell snake oil and rob people blind just like you. Yeah, we get it. We get that you saw an actual statesman instead of a shyster on Fox TV and him looking so good made you look so bad. He actually talks about issues which he understands, and can communicate with people, while you do soundbites to gin up the base. Whole different prospect. Get used to it, Donald. This is the way it’s going to be up until election day, when you lose bigly and fade into total irrelevance and obscurity. Watch Sean Hannity play Brutus to your Caesar then. That’s in your future, while Buttigieg, or some Democrat, cleans up your horrific mess. Yep, we get that you’re freaked, because a standing ovation for a Democrat on Fox News means that you might not be running the show over there any more — and without your propaganda arm, megaphoning your bullshit, you’re just an inarticulate little carnival barker in the weeds. No more Ringling Brothers sized crowds, you’ll do well to get an audience the size of the midnight showing of “Spinal Tap.” When you lose Fox, you lose it all, Donald, and Bernie’s successful appearance, and now Mayor Pete’s, are the foreshadowings of that event. The Trump train is going off the rails — starting with your mind, Donald, starting with your mind. Just […]
