Get Crooked!

If moderates and liberals have a chance at all of stopping was appears to be a blank check handed to Trump to dismantle how government functions in America, we are going to need more of this. A lot more. People have got to get off their asses and start playing by the same rules Trump and Brightbart have played by.

Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, and Tommy Vietor are leaving The Ringer’s ‘Keepin’ It 1600’ to launch a new media company that aims to challenge Trump.

Quote:
They are very aware, as Vietor puts it, that Trump is going to be able to “swamp you every time with a single tweet.” So, they have decided to take a page out of his playbook and try to “reach voters directly” without filtering their message through a larger media lens. The “intimate” nature of podcasts and Facebook Live allow for this direct connection.

no, what needs to be done is for people to stop attacking him on his character, or things he says and focus in on things he does(n't).... his fans celebrate his flaws, they aren't going to be swayed by his being an asshole. they will be swayed by him dicking them over though.

and FWIW that is what should have been done with campaigning too

Yep.

In this respect -- note the qualification -- Time magazine put it fairly well (in a Dec. 26 column by Joe Klein): "While some supporters may balk, Trump's decision to embrace those who have wallowed in the Washington muck has spread a sense of relief among the capital's political class. 'It shows,' says one GOP consultant close to the President-elect's transition, 'that he's going to govern like a normal Republican'." There surely is some truth to this. Business and investors plainly think so. The stock market boomed right after the election, led by the financial companies that Trump denounced during his campaign, particularly the leading demon of his rhetoric, Goldman Sachs. According to Bloomberg News, "The firm's surging stock price," up 30 percent in the month after the election, "has been the largest driver behind the Dow Jones Industrial Average's climb toward 20,000." The stellar market performance of Goldman Sachs is based largely on Trump's reliance on the demon to run the economy, buttressed by the promised roll-back in regulations, setting the stage for the next financial crisis (and taxpayer bailout). Other big gainers are energy corporations, health insurers and construction firms, all expecting huge profits from the administration's announced plans. These include a Paul Ryan-style fiscal program of tax cuts for the rich and corporations, increased military spending, turning the health system over even more to insurance companies with predictable consequences, taxpayer largesse for a privatized form of credit-based infrastructure development, and other "normal Republican" gifts to wealth and privilege at taxpayer expense. Rather plausibly, economist Larry Summers describes the fiscal program as "the most misguided set of tax changes in US history [which] will massively favor the top 1 per cent of income earners, threaten an explosive rise in federal debt, complicate the tax code and do little if anything to spur growth."
But, great news for those who matter.

Trump's America and the New World Order: A Conversation With Noam Chomsky

Pointing out that the Orange Kazoo has quickly become the very people he railed against and will continue to screw over the people who voted for him just as the others did is the path to discrediting. They aren't bothered that he's a schmuck, he's "their schmuck." No kiddos, he's "Wall Street's Schmuck and hope you liked your jobs."

I don't buy that narrative that he's a anything like a "normal republican". normal republicans (or democrats for that matter) concern themselves with capturing and maintaining political power; Trump could give a shit less about political influence, and has his appointments have demonstrated, his sole intent is to torch every obstacle to accruing more wealth at everyone elses loss, and taking the least responsibility if things go wrong. he doesn't care about being president any more than what it will benefit him after the fact. This makes corporations happy as pigs in shit, because they get to abuse all the same 'benefits' of his kleptocratic wrecking spree

LOL, so normal republican after all?

All jokes aside, I agree that he is anything but a normal Republican but I understand Chomsky's sentiment on the issue as well. I would argue that while he's not a normal Republican but rather the worst practices of the Republican ethos writ large.

He does not care about *being* president, he just wants to *win* the presidency. To him it is just another prize in the cereal box.
