“Just remember: What you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening.” – Donald Trump to the Veterans of Foreign Wars 7-24-18
In 1954, a young Princeton University doctoral candidate named Hugh Everett III came up with a crazy idea, that somewhere out there in this great big galaxy there exist parallel or alternate universes, exactly like our universe. And here is the weird part, these universes are all related to each other. Within these parallel universes, our wars have had different outcomes, and species that are extinct in our universe have evolved and adapted. And I guess it would stand to reason that somewhere out there Donald Trump is a poor, skinny, maintenance man with a crew-cut wearing an orange jumpsuit working in some rundown, low rent apartment complex and Hillary Clinton, well Hillary is the President of the United States.
Maybe you haven’t noticed, I am not sure how you couldn’t, but “our” President spends more time golfing and creating an alternate universe for his base than actually doing any sort of Presidential work. Why? Because its hard work creating and covering-up one lie after another. Every day Trump is bombarded by the truth and every day he must fabricate a “new truth” an “alternate truth” or as his adviser Kellyanne Conway once coined “alternative facts”.
Don’t believe me? Here is just a small sampling of the alternate universes Trump has created this week (remember, it’s just Wednesday);
Headline: Michael Cohen Releases Tape of Trump Discussing Hush Money for Playboy Bunny. Trumps alternate universe: “Why was the tape so abruptly terminated (cut) while I was presumably saying positive things?”
- Headline: Trump’s Trade War Threatens Farmers. Trumps alternate universe: “China is targeting our farmers, who they know I love & respect, as a way of getting me to continue allowing them to take advantage of the U.S.”
Headline: How America’s Largest Local TV Owner Turned Its News Anchors Into Soldiers In Trump’s War On The Media. Trumps alternate universe: “So sad and unfair that the FCC wouldn’t approve the Sinclair Broadcast merger with Tribune. This would have been a great and much needed Conservative voice for and of the People.”
- Headline: Rubio: Carter Page FISA surveillance was justified. Trumps alternate universe: “Carter Page wasn’t a spy, wasn’t an agent of the Russians – he would have cooperated with the FBI. It was a fraud and a hoax designed to target Trump.”
- Headline: Yes, Russian Election Sabotage Helped Trump Win. Trumps alternate universe: “I’m very concerned that Russia will be fighting very hard to have an impact on the upcoming Election. Based on the fact that no President has been tougher on Russia than me, they will be pushing very hard for the Democrats. They definitely don’t want Trump!”
Look, let Trump, his Republican lackeys in Congress, the Deplorables and the Evangelicals live in Trumps alternate universe. It can’t and won’t last. The truth is just around the corner. There are simply to many resources out there fighting against them from Robert Mueller to The Washington Post. I know it doesn’t seem like it sometimes but Trump can’t and won’t survive this. His world, the world he alone has created will crumble. He can’t keep it propped up. It will simply become to heavy for him to carry.
Yes, he still has a few minions out there helping him shoulder the load but as he continues to step on his Little orange, Viagra overdosed donald with trade embargoes, tariffs, Russian ass kissing, pissing off our allies, and pissing off China many of these bootlickers will run for cover. Honestly, we have already begun to see some of them attempt to put a little distance between themselves and The Donald. I predict we are just one tape, one recording, one tax return, one white supremacists rally, one aborted love child away from shaking up Trumps alternate universe.
Will the Deplorables and Evangelicals ever be convinced, will they ever leave his side? Oh hell no. Remember Richard Nixon still had an approval rating in the twenties when he resigned the presidency. A few may give-up but most will stick with him, they have too. At this point it’s all about white pride, conservative values, Jesus! Here’s what will happen, the diehards will all move to Florida, vote to succeeded from the United States and name Trump as King, and Ivanka as Queen. Mar-A-lago will become the capital of the newly minted Trump Florida, they got to rename it, and the nine or ten Democrats left in the Sunshine State will have to move. Sorry, that’s what happens in Trumps alternate universe.
