7. Yeah...Scary as this sounds...

I think it's giving Trump far too much credit in the upstairs gray matter department.

There is no way he has even considered the possibility of being the father of the "white awakening". That's just beyond his comprehension ability. Hell the man makes Sarah Palin look like a rank amateur when it comes to word salad speeches and responses to simple questions. He just not smart enough to be diabolical in that sense.

Now what he is good at is reading audiences and figuring out what they need to hear, what they need to experience in terms of crazy wingnuts warm fuzzies...And he's done that.

I think the gravest mistake the GOP, the media, hell damn near all of us made in Trump getting that nomination is his sense of showmanship and his thin skinned need for revenge. That's what this is all about--He was laughable in the beginning, called a fool, a joke--And now he's getting the last laugh on that front. He's found an adoring public, he's sowing seeds of discontent right now with comments about rigged elections and how Hillary can't win unless she cheats. Does he want some kind of uproar on election day. I'll go as far to say he's probably entertained thought, but I'm betting he's making sure the adoring public is there when this is all over...When he moves on to whatever it is he's going to do next and needs their support. Think back to when he was losing a few primaries in the beginning and getting a lot of push back from the media--He was making noise about his network, where he could control the content. I won't be surprised if that's his follow up plan. He'll pull a Glen Beck and go off to start his own reality world where he really is king and adored. And guess what? He'll have a built in audience.
