Playing us like a fiddle with the double down

“Publicity seeking Lindsey Graham falsely stated that I said there is moral equivalency between the KKK, neo-Nazis & white supremacists and people like Ms. Heyer. Such a disgusting lie. He just can’t forget his election trouncing.The people of South Carolina will remember!” 

“The public is learning (even more so) how dishonest the Fake News is. They totally misrepresent what I say about hate, bigotry etc. Shame!”

“Great to see that Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Flake Jeff Flake, who is WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate. He’s toxic!” – Donald Trump tweets 8-17-17

Want to know what Trump’s base cares about? Want to know who Trump is playing too when he goes off script? Spend an hour or two watching Fox & Friends and Sean Hannity. I know for many of you, me included, a trip to the Proctologist would be more enjoyable than burning brain cells that could be used more productively for say picking our noses but this is the state sponsored news agency. I won’t say Fox News is important, let’s just describe them as relevant.

Trump’s early morning tweets play right into the hands of his Fox & Friends base. He slams my Senator, Lindsey Graham, for taking him to task on the way he handled his statements on Charlottesville and then offers an unveiled threat that voters will remember Graham’s lack of support come reelection time.

He offers one of his daily digs at the media, which assuredly excludes Fox News because, well they are the state sponsored news agency. Do you hear the constant drip, drip, drip? Fake news, fake news, fake news. I don’t know if Deplorable Bubba, sitting in his Naugahyde La-Z-Boy scratching his nuts in his Wal-mart boxers and t-shirt subscribes to twitter but he doesn’t need it. Trump tweets, Fox covers it. Fox covers it, Trump tweets it. Deplorable Bubba hears the drip, drip and he believes it, hell he has always believed it and now he has someone in the White House to validate his beliefs.

Here is what I find so interesting about Deplorable Bubba’s beliefs and support of Trump, for a people who consider the big three to be God, Country, and Family they have allowed Trump to do an end around on the God part. They have given Trump a “God pass”. Sure he pays lip service to God, but by the deepest, most spiritual definition is Trump really a Godly man? It doesn’t matter to Deplorable Bubba. In his mind two out of three is more than he got out of that black guy for eight years.  

Then Trump decides to take on Senator Jeff Flake from Arizona who has written a book criticizing Trump, saying his views and behavior are undercutting the Republican Party and its conservative philosophy. This little tit for tat is really interesting to me. Flake has continued to poke the 500 pound gorilla with a sharp stick and the gorilla has even pledged to spend his own money to defeat Flake’s reelection efforts. This one will be fun to watch.

In the meantime the Fox News headline reads “Trump slams two GOP senators who criticized him on Charlottesville” and Deplorable Bubba pops another beer and does a little more scratching. While the rest of us are focused on the unbelievable shit that comes out of Trumps mouth Deplorable Bubba just smiles. He isn’t reading the Washington Post or watching MSNBC. He doesn’t give a shit about all the “noise” the rest of us get all bent out of shape about. Trump is his man.

Donald wants to keep brown people out, he hates that socialist Nancy Pelosi, and he is not afraid to drop bombs on people. He doesn’t want to take Deplorable Bubba’s guns hell he wants Deplorable Bubba to get more guns. He wants to dismantle the government and Deplorable Bubba agrees 100% just don’t touch his Social Security, his Disability or his Medicare. How will the government pay for all of that? Not Deplorable Bubba’s problem, that is his grand kids problem. Global warming? Not Deplorable Bubba’s problem, that is his grand kids problem.

White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon opened Trumps playbook yesterday for the world to see; “The Democrats, the longer they talk about identity politics, I got ’em. I want them to talk about racism every day. If the left is focused on race and identity, and we go with economic nationalism, we can crush the Democrats.”

And what did Trump do? He ran play # 7 of that book egging the “fake news” on this morning with this tweet; “Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments. You can’t change history, but you can learn from it. Robert E Lee, Stonewall Jackson – who’s next, Washington, Jefferson? So foolish! Also the beauty that is being taken out of our cities, towns and parks will be greatly missed and never able to be comparably replaced!”

See these headlines;

Donald Trump stands with bigots. Where will you stand?

Democrats Mount an Effort to Censure Donald Trump

Donald Trump’s 7th-grade reaction to the country’s CEOs quitting his council

Deplorable Bubba didn’t see them, Deplorable Bubba doesn’t give a rats ass about them, fake news, drip, drip. This is the only headline he sees;

Trump: ‘Country being ripped apart’ by monument removals

But Steve Bannon, wants the other 65% of us to see them, focus on them, and wring our hands over them and guess what…….we are.

Why are we letting 35% speak for the majority? Speak-up, it is time to take our country back before it is too late.

  2. Hey guys, I’m still stuck on Trump’s statement that it was his decision to disband the economic councils. What is Bubba’s take on that…can Bubba read? My friends, we are all (Republicans, Democrats, black, white, straight, gay, Nazis, nationalists) feeding into the master game plan of the Koch Bros and their cronies: “divide and conquer”. They are doing it not for political power, for national pride, but for their bottom line. It’s a game to them. $$$$$$$

    • Bubba didn’t give a shit about the economic councils that was purely a Trump/Jared ego thing. And you are right, this is absolutely a “divide and conquer” play. They are playing to the fears of an aging white America, why they want to keep the “browns” out, the “brown” people are still having babies.

      The Koch boys will be dead soon enough (81 & 77), then what? Then what? I guess their plan is to create such a mess that it will take generations to unravel it.
