The Morning Rant

talking ape  02 mask.jpg

I really would like to know what it is about Donald Trump that causes his enemies to smash themselves in the face with a brick. Not just once, but again and again, repeatedly. It reminds me of the demon-possessed boy that was brought to Jesus in Mark 9:17-29, whom the demon would throw into fire or water to try to destroy.

Not that the rabid Trump-haters are demon-possessed, but I have to say that would explain a lot. Particularly Mark 9:18 where it says the demon "throws [the boy] down, and he foams and grinds his teeth and becomes rigid."

I see that a lot on social media.

Anyway, the latest attempt at self-immolation by the Democrats is Nancy Pelosi agreeing to a TV appearance where she allowed herself to be filmed proudly showing off her kitchen with her $10,000 refrigerators (more than one, apparently), absolutely filled with gourmet chocolates and $13 pints of ice cream.

During a lockdown.

Because of a pandemic.

When 20 million(!) American citiizens have lost their jobs and don't know how they're going to make ends meet.

And Nancy thought this would be the perfect time to flaunt her wealth on national TV.


She must have so little regard for Donald Trump that it never occured to her that this footoage might be used in one of his campaign ads. Like the one down below.

The Democrats have been spreading it around for 3 years the bullshit idea that Trump is dumb, Trump is stupid, Trump spends all day watching the Gorilla Channel on TV. They must believe their own bullshit.

Even when he's beating them again and again.

And I think PDT must be going out of his way to cultivate this. It's right out of Sun Tzu: make yourself look weak when you're strong and thus befuddle your enemy. He does this purposely. I'm convinced that when he sounds most blowhardy, that's when he's being the most deceptive. The Democrats think Trump is dumb. Which is fine with him. He is not hampered by a desire for their approval. He absolutely does not care what they think about him.

And this ia why I think the 2020 election might be a blowout win for him. Trump has gotten smarter since 2016. And the Democrats? They've gotten dumber.
