It all makes sense - Trump is on Plan B

Honestly, it seemed that it made no sense. What was the Don's plan? Surely he is smart enough to realize he is not winning? I think I got it today after seeing the Roger Ailes help, Breitbart association etc. Trump has found the answer, but he did not know what the question was. Now he has found the question.

The answer was that a YUGE population of people are angry, and specifically angry that their white country, privilege and culture/way of life was changing. They want things as they used to be but didn't have a voice since it was politically incorrect to talk about it. The college educated white people traveled, saw the global world and realized that things had to change anyway whether they liked it or not - but the"poorly educated" - not so much. Trump truly was telling the truth when he said that he loved the "poorly educated". He knew that was a slice of population that was a market and he could tap into. But how?

He thought running for president might do it. He thought he might get enough support. He even won the primary and became the nominee. But unfortunately for him, he was not presidential material and has too much ego and too little class to adhere to any rules meant for the common person. He was losing badly.

But then viola! Plan B! How about Trump TV. The audience would lap it up. It would be a TV station to the right of Fox News. And who else to lead it than Roger Ailes who knows exactly how to build a TV network empire and is recently out. And Breitbart, who already has a huge following and the right audience. And the Trump name and persona. He could do mock "Oval Office" meetings and make decisions without any of the responsibility. I truly believe he will do a "reality TV white house presidency" and call himself "President Trump", and pretend play as President. In Trump's mind, everything can be staged. Every publicity is good publicity because "the people like it". And he will emerge a winner, because let's face it, real policy is hard work and is for losers.

3. There isn't enough CRAZY to go around though, and Fox might have the advantage there.

As for Ailes, who in their right mind, knowing what we know know would want to go work for Ailes and Trump, two of the worst employees I can think of currently in America. Ailes with his old and decrepit ass sexually harassing women employees on a daily basis, reminds me of the old saying, "Fool me once, shame on You. Fool me twice, shame on Me."

I think though, that Trumps shtik only works for so long before people people get tired of it. Kinda like Sarah Palin. They'll tune in to see her and what's she's wearing, but her shtik starts to wear on you real fast. Besides, on a lighter note, I read just today that Trump was starting to lose the support of White Males, (the GOP's bread and butter). I guess even that bunch can only tolerate so much bullshit and then they've had enough. They know that Trump can't do anything if he can't win, and everyone can now see that the emperor's campaign has no clothes. They're naked, and they just haven't realized it yet.

5. Trump has poisoned the reality TV well.

This is what happens when you mistake "reality" with reality.

There will still be imbeciles who tune into every stupid thing he does. They will gladly embrace a Trump TV and will tune into it every day. But they are the minority of responsible voting Americans. They can gripe amongst themselves while the rest of us move on without them.
