Getting to Grips with the Trump Phenomenon

Getting to Grips with the Trump Phenomenon


i’m here today with David Cay Johnston
and we’re talking about his book the making of Donald Trump how did you get
inspired to do this book well I’ve known Trump since 1988 and
when he announced this time that he was running because he’s been talking about
it since 1985 I recognized he was serious what troubled me was that my peers on
the national journalism level we’re not asking the right questions I mean Trump is is terrific
television it’s like not just when your rubber neck to look at a car wreck it’s
like a car wreck with fireworks and dancing girls and performing seals and
people just can’t turn away from it so journalists weren’t asking the questions
they need to ask but well who is he does his self-image that he’s selling you
comport with reality and what are his actual philosophies and and positions so
i wrote about two dozen pieces about this and no publisher wanted to do a
book 2015 because nobody believed he would get the nomination although I said
right from the get-go I thought he might and by the time he got it nobody could do it except someone like
this publisher Melville House which specializes in doing books at high speed
and so we got the book out August second with regard to Trump what do you want to
impart to people about him you talked about what I would call a map
between what he says what he might say we want and what he is well Donald is a master salesman anybody
who’s done any kind of sales should admire his unbelievable ability at sales
but he’s also PT Barnum you know hey buy a ticket to see the incredible Fiji
mermaid and the two-headed man and so it’s important to understand that he is
selling you what he thinks he can sell you what he wants you to buy and in the
Presidential race what he’s selling you as his belief that he’s superior to the
rest of course he should be President of the United States as one of his sons has said they believe that they’re
genetically superior to the rest of us and so would be beyond question that he
should be President but the problem is well who is he and what he actually got
well there’s no evidence that he’s a billionaire none he’s somebody who was
always borrowing money from his father borrowing money from banks he’s posted i
borrowed money knowing i wouldn’t have to pay it back not paying his bills you don’t actually
a billionaire to own up a thirty-year-old jet and a smaller jet a
couple helicopters you have a lot of income but you don’t have to be a billionaire and I wanted people to understand that Donald Trump throughout his adult life
has gone out of his way to do business with criminals they’ve been his father’s business
partner was an associate of the Gambino and Genovese crime families
according to the New York State organized crime task force and a lot of
other law enforcement reports Donald when he arrived in Manhattan as a young
man made a beeline to the notorious Roy Cohn and through him got connected up
with all sorts of mafia figures who Cohn represented but he went beyond that he
did business with a Russian mobsters just as recently as a couple of years
ago he has done business with con artists and swindlers and perhaps most
importantly of all the person who supplied his casinos with helicopters
wasn’t somebody at one of the many breezily well-run well-capitalized
helicopter companies it was a mob associate convicted felon and it turned
out that this guy had a second business he was a major cocaine trafficker
shipments of cocaine marijuana up to 1,500 pounds of time that he personally
handled and when he was indicted Donald should have run away from him New Jersey Casino Control Act says that the owner of a casino is required to prove by
clear and convincing evidence that he or she doesn’t associate with
criminals instead Trump drew this guy closer and while the case was from Miami
to Cincinnati that’s where the drugs went he asked the case be moved when he
agreed to plead guilty to either Miami or New York City where he lived and
somehow mysteriously because neither the defense or the prosecutor can explain this the case was transferred to New Jersey
where it came before a newly appointed relatively newly appointed judge Mary
Ann Trump Barry Donald’s sister now she removed herself from the case but she
also had to go tell the chief judge that she was flying around in helicopters of
a major drug trafficker think of that we have a sitting federal judge
flying around in helicopters as was her husband of a major drug trafficker Trump
then wrote a letter pleading for mercy for this guy he then lied about it and denied he did it
until he was confronted with it again and he called the man a credit to the
community stand-up guy who is a diligent citizen well the mules who drove the drugs got
20 years up to 20 years this guy served 18 months and he said he was eligible
for parole because he had a job with Donald Trump and he said he had no money to pay back his fines and debts to the government but he moved into his
girlfriend’s newly-acquired multimillion-dollar Trump Tower
apartment now boy that’s something journalists should
be asking about on national TV voters should be asking about and I have been
invited to talk about this on national networks in Australia Japan Canada
Britain France and Germany because the book is selling all around the world
including a German language edition but I have not been on ABC NBC CBS or Fox
and PBS edited out every reference Donald’s connections with these criminals
every reference you haven’t read about it hardly in the New York Times where I
used to work a little bit a little bit in Washington Post and I’ve helped both
those papers with their stories by giving documents that I have but the
public doesn’t know who Donald Trump really is what they know is the image he’s been selling
them it almost sounds like an episode of The Sopranos yeah well there are some
elements of that in there for sure yes and you look at this man you have is
if you’re like a social scientist you have to start with there is an
attraction here yes it is not uniform across the population and obviously he does things that drive some
people away and attract others but he did get the nomination he went through
the biggest what you might call money to party in the country and blew right
through all of the structures that were designed to inhibit someone from like
this from winning well at the other one level rob this
reflects the weakness of political parties in America and they’re becoming
almost irrelevant but on another level Trump understand something that is you
know I’ve spent the last 20 plus years of my life writing about which is
inequality how government is creating it through policies the tax system that
favors people top and in Trump grasps that ninety percent of americans are not
doing well and he knows how to sell them what they want to hear and he’s telling
people elect me and I will get you out of your economic misery I know who I
were having trouble and he doesn’t talk about these complex things that are in
the real world of government rules you’ve never heard of he talks about easy to understand things
it’s the Mexicans it’s the Chinese it’s the Muslims that’s the other into a lot
of people that’s a simple easy-to-understand explanation that he
can sell and so that’s a good important and good and important part of his base
is selling this the simplistic answer here’s the trouble that Donald Trump has
no plan or policy to do anything for ordinary people in fact he started off
the beginning of his campaign saying wages are too high he said it in
november and one of the presidential race wages are too high he was asked
about the next day said wages are too high the next day after that however he
appeared on fox news and he said I wasn’t saying wages I was saying minimum wage was too high
because he asked on the Wednesday morning event about what about the
minimum wage people living on there’s no question that Donald Trump has said
repeatedly wages in America are too high so people who think Donald Trump and
white house will relieve me of this economic terror I’ve been living in
where we don’t have unemployment insurance now for lots and lots of
people who lose their jobs they’re just we’ve restricted their eligibility at
the state level we people don’t have savings wages haven’t grown the the
median wage in this country half make more half make less has been stocked from 1998 through 2014 at about the same level 28 thousand dollars when you
adjust for inflation he has no plan to deal with any of that yes but i want to take the other side ok slightly i agree with you that he has no prescription but the
attraction comes from a diagnosis and it’s in one phrase and everything else
is a variation on that the system is rigged yes and and he’s right about that i mean
that’s the subtitle of one of my previous best sellers the system is
rigged and he’s right and you know what Donald Trump’s one of the people who
rigged it yes he well a thief to catch a thief as though is the old saying here is a guy
who is trying to inspire us to believe because he’s played on the inside he can
now be the ref and stop the inside players from pulling more wool over our
eyes except maybe he won’t get he’s pulling wool over our eyes himself well and
I think it’s very clear he’s pulling wool over eyes for a couple reasons Trump has
a very very short attention span and I know that from having talked to him at
lunch with him interviewed many times incredibly short attention span he literally doesn’t know anything I he was asked in won the presidential
debates by Hugh Hewitt the very smart conservative talk show host what’s your priority for the nuclear
triad he gave an answer with gibberish he would followed up he gave another
answer was gibberish and Marco Rubio was asked the question and Rubio explained its
the ability to deliver nuclear weapons from submarine missiles land missiles or
jet bombers well I point out in the making and
Donald Trump that you had asked him this question four months earlier on the
radio Trump had four months to learn about it when I met Hewitt recently by
chance I brought this up and Hewitt said yes isn’t that amazing in four months
he didn’t do anything about because he doesn’t know anything think about how he describes the job of
the President does he talk in terms of what the Constitution says are the
duties powers limits he talks like a dictator he’s going to tell Ford and Nabisco
where they can build factories he’s going to order you to do this he’s going
to do that that’s not within the purview of the President and then finally on top
of all of that no legislation and he can’t do anything
without legislation that he says he’s going to do will move through Congress
unless one person allows it and that’s the speaker of the house so who did
Donald Trump pick repeated fights with Paul Ryan the speaker who did he appoint to run his campaign Steve Bannon who is the chairman of Breitbart a website that
regularly attacks Paul Ryan and that has said and in fact has an article that
says Paul Ryan is a secret double agent for Hillary Clinton now that tells you
he doesn’t understand how government works he has no idea how it works therefore I conclude he can’t actually
accomplish any of the things he said I think that you’re right in one sense
that he may have demonized the government by picking Paul Ryan yes but the demonization of the
government may be part of what gets him elected oh yes and then he’ll have
trouble implementing because of the way he scarred and antagonize the speaker
the house who is that vital know i think Trump has been brilliant in making the
government to be the bad guy here and we have had this enormous disconnect
between Washington and the rest of the country for going on and building for
about 35 years one of my grown children whose Republican likes to say you have
to recognize that in America the Republican Party and Republicans are two
separate unrelated things and at the base of all that is the campaign finance
system and you know Trump says repeatedly I give money and they do what
I tell them I want to do because they want more money that’s the underlying real problem
he’s exploiting as someone who created it benefited from it but I don’t see any
evidence he’s got the capacity and the skill level and the diligence to fix to
repair it systemically yes most people are interested in the issues about their
own lives know Gandhi said the politics of india our bread salt and water and
the politics in America are people want to roof over there had a car that
starts in the morning and ability to feed and clothe their kids most of them
don’t want to do and are willing to do what it takes to have some huge amount
of money that they don’t need in the first place they want a pension that’s
going to be there when they actually retire and another interesting aspect of
this Rob one of things Trump teaches in his books and his lectures is never
trust any workers especially the high level workers around you they’re always
out to get you must never trust them because any chance they get their gonna
go get you or I think he’s projecting about himself in this regard whereas business and capitalism are
based on trust you and I make an agreement i’m going to buy your house in
30 days and i expect 30 days that you’re going to be there you’re going to
perform and you expect me to show up with house in good shape as
represented and whatever and and the Democrats need to I think recognize that
they are supposed to be the party of people not a business and they need to
represent the interests of people who are never going to have significant
amounts of capital but we want to encourage them to save and have so
they’re not living paycheck to paycheck but higher wages and by the way remember
Donald Trump wages are too high in America one of his principal themes
wages are too high remember the old Frank Zappa line is
that a real poncho or is that a Sears poncho well are you a real Democrat yeah in
terms of ways that touch my life and people have lost faith in the democratic
party again i want to ask you a question that has kind of haunting me and there
probably is a good answer you talk about the turning point being
Ronald Reagan’s promises at the time I remember seeing clips of Death Valley
days and this is an actor and the sky is perhaps a more regal PT
Barnum but that’s what they think that’s what Democrats alleged he was at the
time in 1980 not suited to be a president of the United States well Ronald Reagan remember though had eight years as governor of California he had a record we can establish we know that he
said he would never have a state income tax withholding each week or each
paycheck and then as soon as we got in office he wanted to expand the Highway
Patrol so he agreed to do that Reagan was a very smart guy who played this
doddering character in public the defining characteristic of him was that he
had a couple of things he cared about less regulation lower taxes deal with
the Soviets and crumbling Empire by speeding up its falling apart and care
about the rest of it so it’s one of the reasons that we had was a hundred and
thirty some indictments of Reagan administration officials that was the record
about Reagan was was a smart guy he was lazy that was his principal shortcomings he
was he was lazy his own staff has written about him but people knew who he
was because of GE theater in Death Valley days and all the speeches he
given and the fact that he said Medicare would lead to by now the enslavement of
Americans has proven to be absurd that didn’t affect people what they heard was
vote for me and you’ll be better off and the solutions that he proposed
unfortunately they may be better off business owners because they now have an
incentive to withdraw capital from the business and spend on their lifestyle we
went from successful business owners only maybe a single-engine plane or a 2
engine prop plane today we have business owners who have his-and-her 747s and you
know more mansions then they can count so that is not worked out well for the
average person and what I’m concerned about with Trump is that will see more
of the same his tax plan is heavily weighted to very wealthy people his
child care proposal isn’t much value if you’re an ordinary working American but
if you’re somebody who’s got say three nannies to watch your kids and you
flying around first class your various houses totally deductible
expenses under the under the Donald Trump plan and people don’t seem to be
recognizing this is not in their interests it’s in the interest of people like Donald
Trump so you talk about the money politics system your son says that broke the Republican
Party away from the- it was my daughter oh your daughter I’m sorry you’ve got Ronald Reagan slightly more credible but Trump having
that magnetic energy as well right you’ve got despair or now like you had
in 1980 yes what do we have to fix so that Democrats and Republicans can
represent people and people feel more connected well the core of all this
is the campaign finance system you know when i wrote about this 40-plus years
ago the campaign finance system i thought these reforms were put forth by
liberal reformers were going to be terrific they haven’t turned out to be that way
at all in two states Maine and Arizona we tried publicly financed elections the
voluntary system you have to help to find it worked much better than anybody
thought and the fear that publicly financed elections would lead to
incumbents being reelected no incumbents got thrown out and one of the great
things about publicly financed elections is you gotta budget we’re going to learn
how will you manage that budget in a way where is now or you have unlimited dark
money and we know from the emails in Wisconsin that even though dark money is
supposed to be separate independent committees governor scott walker in the
dark money crowd where hand-in-glove so until we break that system and come up
with a new one financed elections that’s the problem i once had a new york state
senator let we both landed at laguardia airport so we took a cab together in
manhattan and he told me that in the 10 years he was in the state Senate he said
every morning when I was shaving it would think about what do I have to do
for my 10 biggest donors so they’ll continue to support me and not support
somebody else and he said in many cases I knew that they not only would never
get it but what they wanted was actually bad for them it would hurt them they just couldn’t
see it but I had to show them i was doing something or they would run
somebody against me they said you know I can’t remember a single time I ever
thought about the average citizen in my district or what should I be doing for
them people respond to incentives and I could sit here and tell you man if I was
in the u.s. senator the Congress i would do this or that no I wouldn’t i would have a staff
telling me David today you’re gonna meet with the furthest first survive then try
to do good and yeah you know we gotta fix that we’ve
got to have a system where members of Congress are directly responsible to people
and we have to get rid of gerrymandered districts we corral in some states all
the Republicans or all the Democrats in a handful of districts need to stop
that we have 96% retention rate in the house representatives with an
eleven percent approval rating that’s right little uptick answer is actually
that’s changed slightly used to be ninety-eight percent approval rate for
people who are running it is slipped down a bit but not much and you know
I’ve interviewed many many members of Congress well over a hundred
congresspeople and Senators about this they hate the fundraising they find it
demeaning and I’m not surprised that they find it demeaning but their risk
averse that is they’re not willing to say ok let’s blow this up and try
something new well it’s incumbent insurance. well we need to blow it up for them. it is
incumbent insurance at some level sometimes you have policy to sell with
your Challenger may not David thanks for joining us thank you

  • ok..two things about the title…1: no one is comming to grips…and C: trump is not a phenomenon…he is a cancer

  • People were extremely tired of generic politicians. Democrats ran a politician who was horrible at the craft. So, the impossible became reality.

  • Its a right wing phenomenon that is trying to palm itself off as a real alternative to the Welfare State of the establishment status quo.
    When in fact, there is no alternative at all, we still have a Nanny State, we still have Wall Street using other people's money and these are all the features of the Reaganite Revolution that made government less for the people and more for the largest corporations in the US. We still have subsidies going to these corporations for not producing things a given trade relationship with other nations must be subservient. The Reaganite Welfare State opened borders and spread capitalism through free market policies has caused a world reaction of many new right wing authoritarian politicians wanting to close their borders from the influx of cheap labor the corporations consume for higher profits. At the same time, Trump as with the other new authoritarians do not have an answer to the dilemma of the Nanny State, the real dilemma holding the country back from what progress can be made given the state of science.

  • I don't understand how the other Republicans in the House and Senate can justify their support for Trump. Anyone?

  • So true . Trump isn’t with any party and is just giving out basic sound bites that his base wants to hear but then doesn’t see any of it through.

  • Never forget that the Republican mainstream and the big donors supported Trump. More accurately, Trump epitomizes their values. They will still be here long after Trump is gone. And they will give us worse if they can. So take down names and don't forget.

  • Think about the racialism of Trump's life. He is to me like the wolf who was rejected by the pack. So now this lone wolf hunts the unexpected and prays upon them. He is totally without conscience. The man is a predator. No one, nor anything, is outside of his periphery. This includes his own family. Even his own country. Three thousand dead Puerto Ricans means nothing to him. Babies are not precious. I truly believe every single one of us could be sacrificed if ever needed.

  • Trump is evil. He even looks like the devil He is a horrible sales man and. An excellent CON man

  • How could Donald call the news fake news, and yet they will not report this, talk about playing both sides, there exactly like our bullshit government !

  • Opinion bc| What Trump & supporters don't seem to understand. All the investigations are about present day problems. Not about other previous presidents or politicians. It's about Trump illegality & attempts to be above the law. Bottom line. Time will be used after Trump & supporters are legally charged for the actions in criminal activity first. Bottom line.

  • Trump Potrays the image of what America has been & is to the last ' T '. Americans must be proud of that Legacy.

  • We Americans need to attack corruption in both parties. At the same time! Focusing on just the Republicans corruption or just focusing on the Democratic Party's corruption alone does nothing for our American future. Taxpayers who send their kids to fight die, kids coming home with PTSD, fighting to find a job, fighting to support a young family while affordable housing is a distant dream. We need to stop fighting in their unwarranted unlimited war. If we are partisan in our search of criminals in government in one party. This thinking leaves our government under control of just a different political criminal mob.

  • OMG! David Cay… "He literally doesn't know anything." "Donald Trump has no plan to do anything for 'ordinary people." What??? David continues… "I conclude that he can't actually accomplish all the things he said." Um, Hello! is anybody home? Think McFly THINK!!!! (I suggest that David think about what he said and get back with the rest of us, because just from those points he made, his conversation is bogus so far.)

  • I use to go into the tRump Casino and they had parking problems. It originally was the Playboy Casino. It had parking problems and not that many rooms. It had three floors of tables and they would close down the floors if they did not have enough gamblers.
    There was a shell of another Casino that Penthouse owner Bob Gucione could not finance and had problems with unions and the mob. Also, the old Atlantic Shity convention hall was a toilet. The street hookers would walk down Mediterean Avenue and ask you if wanted a date. The bus station was close by. The Casino Buses would drop you off at the building a you had to walk a long walk to the gambling floors. Most of the occupants on the Casino were elderly and could make money by taking the tRump Casino bus. At the tRump Plaza, I do not remember having a resturant in the building. They handed you a roll of quarters after you checked in after a long line.
    Some would spend the money outside his Casino on the board walk. You had to wait there for the six hours until the Casino buses to come back and the casino buses exhaust from the engines would give you a headache. The waiting room for the buses were cramped with some people that reek from sweat and and stale cigarette smoke.
    Atlantic City was a real estate speculators boom bust which drove up housing that was not good to begin with. Most the Casino workers were imigrants who had to commute in. Once you got to the got to Atlantic City you had to fight traffic for an hour and then pay for parking.
    The profits from the first tRump Casino he rolled that into a brand new casino located on back bay and inlet next to the bridge to Brigitine Island,where a lot of the workers relocated for housing. Brigantine became pricey but convient. The new tRump Casino was nice was everything the tRump Plaza was not. But Harrah's Casino was located across from his tRump Marina Casino. Harrah's had the best gourmet buffet in AC. Borgata built a deluxe game changer casino that catered to Poker tables and had a fantastic Sports Book with high end shopping.
    The state built a freeway extension to the AC Expressway to get the gambles with a lot less hassles. I use to ride the Gambler's Express train from Cherry Hill New Jersey which was located in the shopping big box plaza was which was the former Garden State Racetrack.You could take the Gamblers Express trains from downtown Philly , and be there is less than a hour. Originally, there were were Amtrack trains from New York City, Baltimore and Washington DC. The people in South Jersy could link up with the Delaware Port Authority High Speed lines that ran from Philly to Lindenwal New Jersey which get from Philly 22 miles in 22 minutes using the speedline. There were proposed two Port Authority Speedlines from Camden to link the suburbs to Glassboro and Mt Hollly up. But the Delaware River Port Authority built two bridges from NE Philly and Chester Paand no more speedlines. The state rebuilt lanes on I- 295 and Morth South Expressway that feeds into the Atlantic City toll lanes, which clog up do to congestion. The trolley train from Camden to Trenton was built years later. To link up AMTRACK and PATH trains to North Jersey and New York.
    tRump biggest mistake was getting bidding war with Resorts International Casinos Merv Griffin.
    The tRump bought the Taj Mahal casino which was the Mega Casino that went el busto. There were too much competition from Racinos and out of state Casinos for tRump to have the fore sight. He was so bad at running Casino, that the stock holders were left holding the.bag of foreclosure crap, they paid him off instead of dealing with a dunce.

  • Trump" ran" for the 6 th time for Oval Office in 2016,so this was not " something new." He Is a Con Man,a Charlatan.

  • Trump has Not ever,ever been a billionaire,and he does Not have $ 10 billion dollars as he said he did,during campaign.He has,I think,attention deficit disorder,reason for his Adderall medication,and I think he,also,has a diagnosis,of Frontal temporal lobe disorder,and possibly" early onset of Alzheimer's or Dementia. He is Not mentally stable,in any sense of that word.Trump has to be Ousted by the Democratic House of Representatives by Beginning Impeachment Process,NOW!!

  • I think PPL elected him because they thought he was a successful businessman…..when in fact just like everything about him that is a FACAD…..he has lost over a billion dollars he is not successful he just works with big numbers.

  • The Republikkklans say cut taxes and increase spending, that's how you balance the budget white supremacist style.

  • This is what the legislators who are supporting trump should be thinking about. Should they be behind someone who is basically a felon?

  • The Trump phenomenon is a hoax, it's fake news. Most people hate his shtick. He degrades everything he touches.

  • When will trump supporters wake up and smell the gasoline? America is on fire and trump is the flamethrower.

  • Trump is Teflon absolutely nothing ever sticks to him . He’s made some kind of Faustian deal with the dark Lord

  • I saw a few trump supporters …white blue collar men who were so happy about the crumbs trump has tossed them. They looked like pathetic children beggars happy for whatever they could get…in earlier days workers had power and chose politicians who would serve them because They chose them! Unions had power …workers had a say in affairs. Now they are angry white men who are begging for work….pathetic.

  • Constant controversy.
    Keeps you boring ass people jackin’ your jaws.
    Intrigueing, obviously.
    You can’t shut up.

  • DARK money and gerrymandering is destroying AMERICA and the Middle Class. Campaign FINANCE REFORM MUST be accomplished. The Supreme Court screwed us . Hunger Games is already here for too many people.

  • Mr. Johnston sure predicted what would happen…they should have listened. Americans are so stupid and easy to fool.

  • Trouble is the democrats are as corrupt and dishonest and want to make the white population another minority. Divide and conquer

  • I think he's from Austria, originally. Excellent thinking! Trump is the most qualified to run a powerful natiion, and possibly the world.

  • "Is that a real poncho… i mean is that a mexican poncho or is that a Sears poncho? Hmmm… no foolin …"

    Frank Zappa – Camarillo Brillo

    Bravo, sir, bravo.

  • “Is that a real poncho, or is that a Sears poncho?” 🤣🤣🤣 Frank Zappa, Montana Dental Floss. How apropos!

  • Fat-Lips, Little-Hands, Pervert, Racist CREEP, Donnie-Boy-Baby-Richy Rich is….. draining the budget for his STINKY, STUPID, crazy-ass golf games, which he cheats at, ya know?!
    Every freakin' day is another horrid bunch of crap.. Putin's pissed Traitor Trump is kissing up to the Queen – so he sends his soldiers out to practically crash into one of our Naval ships… and we are sitting by and letting this go on and on and on…We are TOTALLY sick of Trump. Low ratings BS. Sickening.

  • Years later this Demonrats smear campaign is in my recommends. So YouTube isn't promoting internationalist agenda???? Trump 2020 and Trump 2024! The first term was stolen by obstructionist Democrat media.

  • You Liberals are Marxist propaganda programmed politically retarded nitwits and evidence of the effectiveness of Marxist propaganda from the corrupt and subversive globalist deep state's propaganda machine (CNN, MSNBC etc.) Comparing Trump to Hitler is evidence of your lack of spiritual discernment and the demonic sickness that has taken over you and that you project onto the good, morally upright, reasonable & logical people of this nation. ——- That's right, we need a tough guy to once again expose and take on the corrupt and subversive shadow government that JFK warned about, and promised to deal with when it was much smaller and less corrupt and that cost him his life. That is the purpose for which Trump was elected and it was Obama who increased the size, scope and power of it as part of his promise (Marxist/Globalist) Fundamental Transformation. This has been a traitorous coup away from what the founding fathers envisioned and set into place. It is treason and now that we have Barr, an attorney general of integrity, and Obama has been proven to be guiltless to the illegal Mueller investigation, the tables are turned and what these traitorous leftist/globalist deep state apparatchiks have been fearing is coming to fruition. They been protecting each other with other being investigated, will be indicted and imprisoned. It's been the reason all along that they have been so frantically and fanatically hateful & fearful of Trump and Sue their complicit leftist/globalist owned news media been molding your mind and formulating your opinions. You been suckered with the twisting, distortion and outright lies of the fake news and what they haven't been telling you is even worse. Apparently you need to see some of the hundreds of "Walk Away" videos to open your eyes and see how stupid you have been. The agenda with which you have aligned yourself is crazy and you're evil, — to bring us down and take away our personal freedoms, our guns to fight a government gone rogue, our free speech, our right to protest & our national sovereignty, (not to mention bring us down to economic and military level of other nations) so that we can be acclimated into the coming communist and new age Luciferian one world government. But of course, your dumb ass thinks it will be a good thing since in your fantasy leftist utopia, they will complete the elimination of Christian values. You people are just stupid to the core, your God damn dangerous. Not only do we need a tough guide to fight the corrupt and subversive deep state we need a very savvy and experienced big business man to bring this country back to economic health and he is already proven himself time and time again, but what you hear from CNN when he gets other countries to pay the what they promised for the protection we provide them with, or fairness and trade deals, is that Trump has insulted our allies. Like I said, you are being suckered and the shadow government that includes both sides of our corrupt establishment is having their way with you, manipulating your mind and formulating your Indians. Here, but George Carlin explain it to you with humor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2o0RnuVjacI

  • I heard one comedian say Trump is like a horse in the hospital. We can't ignore him everyday we just gotta know what crazy sh!+ the horse is doing.

  • I don't admire a thing about him. He hasn't sold me and never will! I saw him once on the Apprentice and hated his guts enjoying a verbal fight going on. I knew he was trouble and turned the channel.

    He can't sell himself to those who refuse to buy. He has no power over anyone unless they give it and people won't admit it.

  • As you can plainly see in his golfing pictures, the rear shots, Donald Trump has gigantic Jeans. Or was that superior genes?
