The Trump trope I hear from talking news heads that

'Trump is tapping into the anger of the people' is very deceptive or downright wrong. I call it the "You know? (fill in the blank) syndrome. For example. You know? Mexicans are stealing our jobs and raping our women. You know? Politicians in Washington are stupid. You know? You know? I think that is why Trump can be equated with Hitler, Mussolini and many other dictators throughout history who rose to power. They cause people, who do very little real "thinking" or are "lazy thinkers" or do not contemplate or think at all, to believe anything. It's simply a tool used to create a foundation and avenue to power. You can call it fear mongering, which it is, but I think it's different than that. In the hands of a narcissistic sociopath it's downright dangerous.

Trump is using the questions we all have about society and twisting them in a way that make the "less decerning" believe what he wants them to believe. He justifies his ends using any means. The Talking News Heads need to start telling the truth. Saying that Trump is creating anger. Not tapping into it. Hitler convinced the German populace that Jews were the cause of all their problems. Financially and socially. It's sad that so many can be led to the edge of anger. I fear many will actually take the dark leap into destruction.

Representative William Lacy Clay, Democrat 1st district

St Louis, Missouri is the only person speaking the truth at the Flint water hearings on the hill today. I'm watching C-SPAN 3 and Republicans are being sarcastic and hypocritical with their questions. Of course I would expect nothing less. Mr. Clay's questions and statements should be broadcast all over the country on every Network. He quoted Donald Trump and Ted Cruz regarding their statements about eliminating the EPA. During the hearing Republicans say the EPA should have done more yet they call for less regulation and are calling for their the EPA's elimination. I'm apoplectic. This is incredible. Thank you Representative Clay! [IMG][/IMG]
