As Trump 's World Turns: Rallies, The Strange And The Hidden Ones

Trump delivered two rally yells this week. One in Florida and the other in Ohio. In both rallies, Trump's delivered oratory comparable to that of famous leaders in Europe during the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s (through 1944).

Trump's audiences heard a sermon unequaled from a US President. From outright lies through threats of jailing Hillary Clinton. He whipped up the Florida crowd to a level of seething and boiling physical manifestations. We saw and heard obscene hand gestures, obscene yelling, lowlife signage and threats to CNN's Jim Acosta.

Of course, my perspective is that of a liberal who finds Trump s reprehensible person. Let's take a look at FOXPEN'S (Fox Propaganda And Entertainment Network) Mind shapers for their perspective on Trump's oozfests.

It seems the two Fox propagandist found qualities in the speech many rational Americans would feel: really." 
"He was positive, he was funny. But more importantly, he had a message of success."
Politifacts ran an analysis regarding the veracity of one Jeanne Pirro. The rating was "FALSE" for those who didn't visit the link. Point being? All people get things wrong at times, it appears Pirro as a member of the Trump communications team shares Trump's penchant for lying.

A message of Success?

Does the Fox News propagandist mean Trump's remarks about the US Steel industry?  

You knew what follows was cue'd-up, right? No there is no "six" steel producing plants opening-up.  We located a Politifact "False."

We shouldn't forget how he fed his audience regarding trade and "Space."

Success?  I posit Pirro and Tucker Carlson know better and are fulfilling their lucrative Fox News role (contracts).  Alas, I digress.

More success?

Unbelievable in its ridiculousness.

Of course, we will not post the full Trump video of his rallies. The previous snippets offer insight into Trump's world and the world of those who literally worship the man. Let's take a look at a growing sect in Trump's world.  A sect embodied with conspiracy theories and other traits which most Americans do not share.


The New York Times on Qanon

It shouldn't surprise rational people when we have examples of what follows as a guidepost. 

The FaceBook page developer of Now This published a great three-minute video regarding eight of Trump's most whacked-out episodes of carnival barking.

And then there is this.....

As Trump 's World Turns: Communications Can Hurt

Image may contain: 1 person, text

When we think in terms of speaking, do you agree with the thought a highly compensated talking head (presstitutes) should have the skill to appear on a News network segment and speak without fail about their boss? Well, the logical answer is: "Yes." The defensive answer is: "Maybe."  And, the irrational Trump supporter's answer is: "No."

The Trump supporter is correct, in the context of this post.

Watch seven seconds of a very highly compensated talking head on CNN.

On the eve of the 74th anniversary of D-Day, former Fox News personality and State Department official,  Heather Nauert, spoke in defense of a US Ambassador to Germany who is reported to be on the wrong side of acceptable to German political officials  What transpired in the State Department briefing is absolutely stupefying yet indicative of Trump's staffing decisions.   

Nauert invoked a phantom D-Day relationship with Germany.  The US lost 9,000 fighting men on the beaches of Normandy. Guess which nation was responsible for their deaths. 

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert speaks during a briefing at the State Department in Washington, Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2017
 Heather Nauert 
"When you talk about Germany — we have a very strong relationship with the government of Germany," the senior State Department spokesperson said at a June 5 briefing. "Looking back in the history books, today is the 71st anniversary of the speech that announced the Marshall Plan. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the D-Day invasion. We obviously have a very long history with the government of Germany, and we have a strong relationship with the government."

Before we close let's take a couple of minutes to see and hear how MSNBC's Rachel Maddow addressed the obvious State Department FUBAR laced with a chronic lack of professionalism from Nauert.

Shouldn't we expect better from our Executive Branch of Federal government?

Doesn't the nation deserve better from the State Department?

For some reason, I believe the nations deserves much better in the State Department.  Nauert's comments were intern-like Bush League and downright embarrassing.
