Trump'd : No More Black Presidents And The Big Lie ("He is like one of us")


Under President Barack Obama, income levels and unemployment numbers "are worse now than just about ever" for African-Americans.

FalseTrump— Donald Trump on Sunday, August 2nd, 2015 in 
an interview on ABC "This Week"
Donald Trump: Black income, unemployment 'worse now than just about ever' 
By Louis Jacobson on Sunday, August 2nd, 2015 at 4:39 p.m.
Donald Trump phoned in several interviews on the Sunday news shows on Aug. 2, 2015. 
Just days before the first Republican presidential debate of the 2016 campaign, billionaire real-estate developer and current polling leader Donald Trump criticized President Barack Obama’s record on ABC’s This Week. 
At one point, Trump zeroed in on Obama’s status as the country’s first black president, arguing that he had failed his black constituents.

Donald Trump is busy carnival barking like the exhibition orator charged with suckling you in to enter the carnival tent 
to see what you will surely grow to feel: "That was a rip off."

Trump has literally captured the attention of potential voters who so long to vote conservative they are actually oozing over a barker who started his campaign with outlandish anti-Latino racist rhetoric and asinine assertions about Mexico.

"Oozing?" Yes, as illustrated via a segment with 
Bloomberg's John Heilemann. Talking Points Memo published a condensed version of the Heilemann interview. 


The TPM piece included these comments.

“He's like one of us," Janet, a former dog breeder, explained. "He may be a millionaire (sic), which separates him from everybody else. But besides the money issue, he's still in tune with what everybody is wanting.” 
Many also cited Trump's vast wealth in identifying with him.
"I knew that he was a wealthy, successful man and I remember asking my mother if I could write him a letter to ask him how he made his money so that I could do it too," Jessica, a data analyst, said.
Heilemann further asked the focus group what they believed a Trump presidency would look like. 
“Classy,” Cheryl, a real estate agent, answered confidently.
Talking Points Memo

(Eigth Minute version)

Seriously? Do you recall years when Trump would not affect a handshake based on reports of a personal germ paranoia?

How about these solid middle class Americans who seem to actually feel as if Trump is one of us?" The original segment even includes a panelist who yelps about wanting to be a billionaire and that in his mind makes Trump "OK." Heilemann also asked the panel how they felt about Trumps statements regarding Hispanic immigrants as possibly racist remarks. The panel grew quiet with one pronounced voice saying , "doesn't bother me."

"...doesn't bother me."

Sadly, because president Obama has done such a poor job as president, you won't see another black president for generations! 3:15 AM - 25 Nov 2014

Trump's cognitive constipation and severe oral diarrhea is abhorrent to many Americas, but welcome and cherished by others.    

“He's like one of us," 


"...doesn't bother me."

Sadly, Trump's personal aura is attractive to a majority of conservative poll respondents. An indication of the depths to which American conservatism has devolved.
