The Daily GOP Ignominious: Trump's Russia, Trump's Surrogates And The Perception Of Deplorables"

The unfathomable continues

Image result for trump madness

Trump seems to have an in with Russian cyber INTEL and operatives. What follows from CNN's Jake Tapper is serious business and a far cry from our lust for all things reality TV and all things Trump.  It is also noteworthy to point out that conservative America's affinity for Putin as the world's leading "leader" has come around to Russia as a political ally (regarding working to elect Donald Trump).


The next segment embodies my perception of the average Trump supporter.  Caution: what you are about to see and her is literally "deplorable."

Trump supporter leaves CNN anchor speechless @CNNPolitics 

Nothing shy of unbelievable.

Are you up for a bit of Ben Carson? After following the next portion of this post, revisit the question: "Is Ben Carson still of sane mind?"

Yesterday Carson sat on-air with CNN's Brianna Keilar. The segment needs no further introduction beyond the narrative posted below. The video follows the posted narrative and I hope you will continue o-on for a few additional words beyond the video.

Have a look and listen.
Real Clear Politics

Since day one in the GOP cattle call for presidential candidates, Ben Carson has stood out as a serious liar with chronic delusional tendencies. He is certainly not the noted brain surgeon who once garner total respect across international medical journals. Basically, Carson has devolved into a political phony who is as poor a spokesperson as any who are making the rounds during the 2016 political season.

Before we go on, a quick observation. Carson's phoniness also relates to his very much international efforts to appear thoughtful and respectful via his intentional hand "steepling". The image above shows the extent to which the phony surrogate with work to stage a "steepling" display. His hands are not in a relaxed position and are actually raised to appear mid-camera view. How phony!

Check it out: "Simply Body Language"

Hand Steeple
The hand steeple, where the fingers are making a little "roof top", is showing a lot of confidence. This hand gesture is very popular with lawyers, politicians and priests (it does resemble praying, don't you think?) and while it shows great confidence, you should not use it when you're trying to gain someone's trust... the hand steeple can make you look arrogant and schmug. It does show strength when negotiating.
Hands behind head
Another posture that reveals the vulnerable parts of the body, while opening up the airways (similar to holding your hands on your back), is by putting your hands behind your head. You also use more room this way, a sign that you are an extraverted, confident, outgoing person.
Allow me to offer one more piece regarding the business of displaying intentional non-verbals to deliver (often false and phony) messages.

11. Steepling

hand steeple
Steepling is what you call palms that face each other with just the fingertips touching (the fingers resemble a steeple). This is a display of confidence and self-assurance. You would see this in a lawyer or chess player who just found a way to wipe out his opponent.

You don’t want to over do it however, as this is a real show of power.

If you think the business of artificial placement of one's extremities as tools of subliminal message delivery, think again. As a former Human Resources Manager, I can recall two occasions over the course of a four-decade career when a candidate for hire visited my office and flashed both "moves" during the interviews.  I recall thinking on both occasions; "Dude, I read the book."  Needless to add, but I will pose as a question anyway.  Do you think I hired either "slicksters?"

After the revealing CNN interview, I heard, today, Carson may be seeking out of his surrogacy for Trump.  The interview was a true disaster. And, I doubt very seriously Carson heard any of his supposed or alleged "young" Cohorts bragging about grabbing female genitalia. Moreover, his retort was without thought as Trump is supposed to have grown well beyond a teenage analogy. 

Of course, if nothing above bothers you, you are far down the path of a walking Trump zombie.
