How do you explain a man who is in line to become the next president of our country — you know the battle is over and it is time to relax and try to act sane and not rile up your trumpeteers — coming out with the following two tweets:
Thursday night two days after the election and after meeting with a gracious President Obama:
“Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!”
Friday morning after being told that in America it is not considered unfair to demonstrate — overnight someone must have whispered in his ear “Mr. Trump, you know that is one of the basic guarantees in America” which probably caught him by surprise; and another whispered “Mr. Trump the media also has the right to express its opinions even if you don’t like it” — he posted the following tweet:
“Love the fact that the small groups of protesters last night have passion for our great country. We will all come together and be proud!”
How do you go from unfair professional protesters incited by the media to loving a small group of protesters who have passion for our country? I suppose the only way to answer that is to say the man is the consummate con man who will say anything at any time and nothing that he says can be accepted as the truth.
You cannot have two totally opposite opinions like that without being a con man. He must think the last thing he says wipes out the first. Do you think he believes the demonstrators are unfair or that they are patriots? Go back to his first tweet and ask yourself how could a man think they were unfair under any circumstance unless he was a little bit balmy and had no idea what it is to be an American.
It is clear that huge support for him came from the blue-collar workers: white men without a college degree estimated at 72% to 23% and white women without a college degree 62% to 34%. Unfortunately for them, he conned them greatly.
Proof of that comes from the reaction by the insiders in the stock market who have pushed that to record levels by piling into the sectors that they expect will most benefit under the Trump presidency.
The five sectors are pharmaceuticals/biotechs; big banks; oil and gas companies; infrastructure and defense. There will be no more fight back to the increases in prices for drugs; the banks will again run free of regulations; the restrictions on fracking, pipe lines, and oil drilling will be lifted. None of these will benefit the people who supported Trump.
The increase expenditures on the infrastructure will provide more American jobs at home which may help but those were also planned by Clinton. As for defense expenditures, yes they are going to go up and there is going to have to be a need to justify them. To my way of thinking that justification will come in the way of war.
It will be the Trump supporters who will have to fight it. It has always been the blue-collar workers who have suffered and died to make America into the bastion of freedoms which it has become. One thing that President Obama did was to keep us out of a major war and save American lives.
He did that because he stood up to War Hawk Netanyahu — remember him coming here to campaign against Obama and the Republican Congress giving him a hero’s welcome — who wants the US to attack Iran which he considers the existential threat to Israel’s existence. When Obama told him he would rather try to stop Iran getting nuclear weapons through a deal rather than bombing Netanyahu went to war against Obama.
Guess who Trump invited to come to America ASAP. You got it! Netanyahu! This article here says: “Both men have known each other for many years, . . . In addition, Trump’s inner circle is very close to the Netanyahu and to Israel.”
Don’t say I didn’t warn you electing a con man.
