It’s a trigger. And Trumper programming is so basic. He mentions Mexican invaders, cartels, gangs and drugs and Trumpers snap to attention immediately! They forget everything happening around them, and they are malleable for days, weeks...who knows?
So I was thinking about the one happening right now. Trump just escalated a trade war with Mexico for no apparent reason. Americans are going to pay for it, and it’s probably going to derail TrumpNAFTA. Economically it is one of the stupidest in a long line of stupid things Trump has decided to do in the last two years. So, why?
Mueller’s press conference was devastating for Trump for a lot of reasons. Most importantly, many of his biggest lies were debunked on television. That works far better than a 400+ page report in Fox News’ bookless wasteland, formerly known as the Heartland.
But! What if this is a preemptive Mexican invasion trigger? What if something really really bad is coming, and he needs his rubes attention diverted temporarily? I know that sounds a little Trumpery and conspiratorial, but we’re in the “played a billionaire on tv era”, so might as well enjoy it.
Remember when Jesus Trump descended from Heaven on the gaudy, Golden Escalator to preach the gospel of Mexican murderers and rapists? How far we’ve come...
