All Trump does is repeat his own name over and over and over again. It’s sickening. It’s vomit. It’s like…what was that question on HQ…about projectile vomiting? Oh yes! Question 6 or 7 tonight on the HQ Trivia app was that vultures use projectile vomiting to ward off attacks. That sounds right. Trump is a vulture under attack. (And HQ is an online urban respite where a million+ come to test their trivia skills in search of money and glory. It’s challenging and fun. Download the app.)
But I digress.
“No one has been tougher on Russher than President Donald J. Trump,” say Trump spewing to the media. Insert a jumbled sentence or two saying ‘There’s no collusion. Everyone’s saying no one’s been tougher than Trump. The media will say ‘oh Trump this Trump that’ but they know Donald J Trump is tough on Russher. There was no collusion. ’
A firehose of vomit that includes the words “Trump” again and again. Political bravado? Presidential buffoonery? Or is it Trump, making a full-scale attempt to deceive you, to make you question what you hear, see, and smell. It’s his attempt to rewrite history. I can SEE with my own two eyes and HEAR with my own two ears that he’s not implementing Russian sanctions. Trump’s repeating the lie that he’s tough on Russia will not convince me. Vomit your propaganda on someone else.
It’s clear Donald Trump grew up saying his own name over and over again. I bet he was a critic of Dale Carnegie but used his principles anyway. Straight from Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People:
6 Ways to Make People Like You:
#3 Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sounds in any language
Except Trump only uses his own name. He doesn’t care about you or yours. He totally missed Principle
#1 Become genuinely interested in other people
Trump is not a gifted orator. He’s a narcissist so caught up in his own story he doesn’t understand people are dying because of his decisions. Bombs dropped in Syria and “many people died,” Trump said. But he doesn’t see them; he doesn’t hear them. We’re all just extras in his tv show.
The greatest shit-show on earth.
How do I turn this around? The more vomit spewing from Trump, the more vomit spewing from me. Literally and apparently. Where is the love?! Where is the light?!
I will NOT turn off the tv. I will not walk away from the destruction of democracy, but I can’t stand to hear him. I guess that’s the answer. No more video; news articles only.
And then I’ve got to find a way to speak respectfully. If not about Trump, then about others. That’ll be my personal quest: to become genuinely interested in other people, (that’s easy; I truly am) and to use THEIR name in conversation—NOT my own. And, exercise Dale Carnegie’s Principle
#2 SMILE! 🙂
