You don’t have to read “The Art Of The DeaL” to understand sales. Just read this:
I want to sell you a car. I tell you, “This is a nice car”. My SAYING “This is a nice car” doesn’t make it a nice car, but the SUGGESTION that this is a nice car hangs in the air like a bad odor until someone counters it by saying “NO, this POS is NOT a nice car”. What does the con do then? He/She doesn’t engage in debate. They just move on to the next selling point. “This car is a bargain.” “This car gets good mileage”. They will hop all over and around and never stick to one argument long enough to be contradicted. They prevail by SUGGESTION and simply change the subject when someone contradicts them. Sound familiar?
Any lie has its own truth for a moment. “I saw thousands of Muslims dancing for joy on 9-11” hangs in the air until someone pulls it down. “Three million people voted illegally”. “They bused people in from Vermont to vote in New Hampshire”. “I had the largest inaugural crowd in history” and on and on and on. When anyone tries to confront him, he walks away. That’s what cons do.
Donald isn’t the only con in the White House these days, of course. Kellianne and that idiot Steven Miller, the clown who botched the Muslim ban order, are front and center. Bill Clinton had a Rolodex of 2500 names he could call on; Don has Jared. The Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight would have enough problems if they were straight shooters. Being cons-in -training is challenging.
D the C committed several outrages yesterday. Among them was trying to impose a gag order on the Federal employees who spend YOUR money to accomplish Federal tasks. He doesn’t want them to be able to whistleblow or otherwise divulge that’s going on with YOUR money and resources. What does he want to hide? Hopefully ,the Unions and lawyers will atop this attack on free speech, but you can’t bet this is only the first time. He has NO HESITATION WHATEVER to attack free speech and the next target might be YOU.
Responsible citizens are alarmed at his unhinged behavior. HERE”S an update.
Well, first of all, he doesn’t have any friends. Forty years of scheming to defraud the people he does business with hasn’t resulted in his having a robust network of friends or even allies.
Second, his limited intellect and knowledge are well beneath the usual level for prospective Presidents. He is the most unprepared President in history. He doesn’t KNOW how things are normally done, or why. Lil’ ol’ Reince Prebius is supposed to be keeping Don the Con on track. He is failing at his task. Trump is insulting our allies daily and trying his best to compromise our national security based on his warm fuzzy feelings for the KGB thug Putin. His judgment sucks and I don’t want to be endangered by it.
Can anyone talk sense to Trump? An egomaniac who thinks he knows better than 17 intelligence agencies is probably uncontrollable. It will be left to the checks and balances of the system to put the brakes on this new Government by Ignorance. Will he be brought down by his greed? Or by his arrogance? What a wonderful choice for the American people.
So the world is to be treated to the spectacle of Don the Con staffing his administration (correction: this is YOUR administration) with his untalented children. Very Banana Republic. And this is making America great again?
Every day Don the Con does something more hateful. Taking off on Meryl Streep? He has no self-control, no dignity and no wisdom. Even the 24% of the electorate that voted for him are getting tired of his act. He WAS entertaining for awhile. Now he’s just an ignorant bore. Hello, President Pence.
HERE is an interesting take from Salon about his unfitness.
