Why do so many people believe
That Donald Trump is not a political genius?
It’s not easy to say what he is!
I have something…..
Trump lacks certain qualities that Europeans traditionally value.
For example, he has no class, no charm, no coolness,
no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth,
no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-confidence,
no humility, no honor and no grace…..
All features, strangely, with which his predecessor,
President Obama, very generously endowed.
The stark contrast casts Trump’s limits more into an embarrassing, sharp picture.
And while Trump may be ridiculous, he has never said anything oblique, funny, or even weak – not even, never.
I’m not saying this rhetorically, I mean it quite literally: not even, never.And this fact is particularly disturbing, because his lack of humour makes him inhumane and even more ridiculous.
Trump doesn’t even seem to understand what a joke is – his idea of a joke is a savage commentary, an illiterate insult, a random act of cruelty.
Trump is a troll.And like all trolls, he’s never funny and never laughs;
he just crows or cheers.
And what is frightening is that he not only speaks in crude, senseless insults, but also thinks in them.His mind is a simple, bot-like algorithm of petty prejudices and snippets of malice.
There is never a foundation of irony, complexity, nuance, or depth.
It’s always just the surface.
Some people mistakenly see this as refreshing.
Well, it is not.It is as if the man had no inner world, no soul.
Most people are usually on David’s side, not Goliath.All real heroes are brave outsiders: Robin Hood, Knight Ivanhoe, Prince Iron Heart, Oliver Twist, etc.
Trump is neither courageous nor an outsider.It is exactly the opposite of that. He’s not even a spoiled reichling.
He’s more of a fat, white ball.A Jabba, the Hutt, the Privileges.
Worse still, he is the most unforgivable…. a tyrant.
That is, except when he is among other tyrants; then he suddenly turns into a snarling lap dog.
There are certain unspoken rules of boxing – the Queensberry rules of decency – and he breaks them all.
He hits down – what a gentleman could never do, should and would – and every blow he aspires to is under the belt.
He particularly likes to kick the weaker or the voiceless – and he kicks them when they are down.
The fact that a significant minority – about a third – of the electorate is watching what they do, listening to what they say and then thinking:
“Yes, he seems to be my guy” is a matter of confusion and great concern for the rest of us, given:
* Americans are supposed to be the nice guys, and they usually are.
* You don’t need a particularly sharp eye for details to detect a few mistakes in the man.And if you don’t see them, then you’re completely blind or complicit or a listener. or….. All three!
This last point is what confuses particularly clear-thinking people:
His mistakes are pretty hard to overlook.Actually not at all!
After all, it is impossible to read a single tweet or hear him speak one or two sentences without staring deep into the abyss.
He transforms the artless into an art form; he is the Picasso of pettiness; the Shakespeare of shit.
His mistakes are fractal: even his mistakes have errors, and so on, and so on, and so on, and so on, and so on, and so on…. ad infinitum.
Sure, there have always been stupid people in the world, and so have many evil people.But rarely has stupidity been so vicious or malicious.
He makes Nixon look trustworthy and George W. intelligent.
In fact, if Frankenstein decided to build a monster composed entirely of human error, he would make a Trump.
And a repentant Doctor Frankenstein would get his hair up and scream:
My god….. what…. Have…. Have…. i… to create?
If “The Trouble” were a TV series, Trump would be the script!
