I gotta say that this article in the New York Daily News is absolutely brilliant, witty, and also terribly depressing. But they nailed it when summarizing the spectacle of Donald Trump's presidential candidacy.
"Clueless New Hampshire voters handed billionaire bore Donald Trump a “yuge” victory in the first-in-the nation primary Tuesday, providing the mad mogul with a new round of ammo a week after a disappointing second-place finish in Iowa."Then it goes further with the substance-free campaign claims he's been giving for the past year, back when everyone thought it was just a joke.
"We are going to make America great again, but we're going to do it the old-fashioned way," he said as an excited crowd chanted, "USA, USA." "Were going to beat China, Japan, Mexico.
"We are going to do something so fast, and so good, and so strong. The world is going to respect us again, believe me," he added, going on to double down on a handful of familiar promises.
“I am going to be the greatest jobs president that God ever created,” he said. “We’re going to build a wall, it’s going to be built … It’s not even a difficult thing to do."Excuse me for being cynical, but this stuff sounds like the speech a high school football coach gives his players during halftime.
Sadly, people respond to this stuff.
Give Trump credit because he's a billionaire who knows how to connect with regular football-watching Americans, or people he's never associated with in his entire life. But, he's truly a genius at selling his brand of Donald Trump, which strangely appeals to people.
And it makes no sense to me. Nor to the NY Daily News.
