Trump as Folk Hero

How has Trump maintained his base through all the adversity of the last three years? Surprisingly, the explanation is simple. His critics haven’t talked to the people, but instead, have talked to each other. These experts still don’t know how America got here, but the people do.

When the vast unwashed masses voted for Trump, there were several reasons, and the most important was Hillary Clinton. To defeat her would require someone who could break the logjam of Midwest industrial states. It was obvious that Clinton could not appeal to them, because she lacked sincerity. What was also obvious was that none of the usual cast of Republicans could do so, either.

    He was filled with straight-talk, no bullshit, straight forward direction, he was the only decent candidate. Wish we got Ron Paul in previous elections but the media blacked him out, even fox cut to commercials when it was his turn to speak.

    Trump will win again in 2020, the only meaningful competition is Scandalous Biden, and flaky Flake… Not much to choose from. Trump is the least evil so I suspect he will win again.

    I also suspect those voting machines are being rigged up right now.

    Many of Trump’s votes came because he wasn’t Hitlery….who had come to be despised and still is. She’s evolved as the biggest sore loser of all time, and I hope she has lots of time to reflect on this in her prison jumpsuit there in Gitmo.

    What the elites, talking heads and all the other “experts” do not and refuse to understand is that we saw what a vile evil person Hillary truly was and still is. To use a phrase by Andrew Vachss: “behavior is truth”. She was judged and found wanting was by her actions and not her words.
    Trump’s detractors and enemies still do not have the slightest clue that THEY continue to provide reasons for supporting him. One of the reasons why Trump is so popular is that he is NOT one of them; a professional politician. Trump is popular because he continues to let the TPTB expose themselves for what they are: evil corrupt, spineless hypocrites and our enemies. And insane.

    …..or, it just could be that the millions who voted for Trump believed deep down that he just might bring about some-here it comes-Hope and Change. Not that the previous guy who used that phrase ever gave a diddly about doing what he promised-it was just another campaign slogan to him that would go into the trash can once the votes were counted and he won. Do you suppose the out of work millions from the previous 8 years were ready for something they could believe in?

    Trump took those tired but meaningful words and re-branded them into Make America Great Again. Sounds like a winner to me.

    Basically, I noticed the people who hate Donald Trump generally hate guys like me…

    As much as I love Trump, and what he has done, I am afraid that the reason he was elected was because of Democrats who couldn’t bring themselves to vote for Hillary.
    We won’t have that advantage this time.

Play nice.
