The Russians didn’t steal the election for Donald Trump. The Russians did their best to inject chaos into our election process and damage Hillary Clinton, but they didn’t steal the election.
Nobody stole the election.
You could say Trump stole the Republican nomination, but only from the perspective of having taken the nomination out from under the noses of the Republican establishment in broad daylight with the whole world watching. That should tell you something about how stupid the Republican leadership really is.
It’s not a case of they could not walk and chew gum at the same time. They could neither walk nor chew gum. Years ago they sought to bolster party membership by welcoming in imbeciles and fascists.
In 2016, a perfect storm resulted in Trump the nominee.
The real question is, “Who is Donald Trump?” Personally, he is a wealthy, pathetic, aging, ignorant, demagogue. He is a living, breathing caricature of modern degeneracy. Politically, he is a media creation. He is the ratings buffoon that was never meant to be taken seriously. He is a bad choice run awry. He is the beneficiary of billions of dollars’ worth of free publicity. He is the political equivalent of the Kardashians. Unexpectedly, he may be a tool of Putin.
Trump rails against the Main Stream Media in much the same way the monster railed against Dr. Frankenstein.
We have already gotten an idea on how Trump plans to address and formulate policy. Consistent with his Frankenstein monster persona, he goes back for more juice every chance he gets. That’s what his “Thank You” tour was about. That’s what Tweeting gives him.
The adulation of ignoramuses is of little worth or desirability to an intelligent man. It is everything to Trump. He literally can’t live without it.
When Trump tweeted, “It is time for Republicans and Democrats to get together and come up with a health care plan that really works - much less expensive & FAR BETTER.”, he showed us exactly how he planned to govern. He plans to govern by fiat. His most recent fiat is for someone to come up with an anti-hacking plan in 90 days.
Trump wants a wall. He wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act. He wants to reset relations with Russia and make a new "deal" with China. He wants all these things, but he hasn't a clue how to bring them about other than by using Twitter to issue fiats. He is like a Moslem cleric issuing a fatwah.
