Donald Trump is a political wonder. He is hateful, racist, untruthful, and self centered. Yet, he has a following. Trump lost the popular vote, and one the Electoral College by winning narrow margins in key stays giving him the victory.
Stuart Stevens, a former Republican strategist is revealing more about Donald Trump. It is a truth that should hurt, a truth that should spell the end to the Trump presidency. Moreover, it is a truth explaining why Republican leaders and officer holders are strangled by “The Donald.”
Vanity Fair reports:
“When I talk to Republican politicians, I hear Franz von Papen,” he says, referencing the German chancellor who convinced Germans that so-called radical leftists were a far greater threat than Adolf Hitler. “They all know that Trump is an idiot. They all know that he’s uniquely unqualified to be president. But they convinced themselves that he was a necessity.”
“It is the combination of the anti-intellectualism, the anti-education elements of the Republican Party, and the anti-elite elements of the Republican Party, so-called, that have culminated in this toxic brew that is killing tens of thousands of Americans,” says Stevens, who recently joined the independent Never Trump organization the Lincoln Project. “I mean, more Americans are going to die because of this combination of political beliefs than major wars. This virus [is] attacking Americans. And Donald Trump is making it a lot worse, and we all know this. But Republicans won’t even stand up to defend America.”
“…I really think he is against America..”
Stevens is right, Trump is against America, Trump is against his base, Trump is using the ignorance of part of his base as a tool to win…Trump is concerned about one thing…Trump.
Trump is a political wonder. He lies, he lies to defend his lies, and his lies continue to fool most of his voting base. He knows he is lying, but his lying, outlandish behavior is working for him, keeping his ego pumped and his self serving term in offices going.
…and the same of it all is the Republican leadership is going right along with it for fear of losing their positions.
In politics, it is all about the politicians and nothing about what is good for our nation. Unfortunately, there are too many blinded by the Trump propaganda machine to even know what is happening…
Our greate republic is degrading and if this continues it is headed toward failure.
