OMG I love Donald Trump!!!! Thank god for Donald Trump!!!! Why? Because hating him is what he wants from us. Hating him gives him the fuel for his fire. When the media reports the hate from the left, it fuels the right to hate right back. All hate matters y’all.
I see him as a human being. A sick human being. Like seriously, you’re hating on someone who has been clinically diagnosed by professionals based on his behavior and mannerisms as having numerous psychological conditions. He’s an addict. He’s addicted to power and money. I pity him. I pray for him, and then I thank him.
You see, Donny is not what’s wrong with this country. Donald Trump wasn’t the sole person who took social services away from the poor and needy; that started 40 years ago. The same with immigration, tax cuts to the rich, inequities between the haves and have nots; the list goes on ad Infinitum. In fact it’s the corruption in politics in general that got him elected in the first place. Corporations buying legislation to benefit themselves, super PACs, gerrymandering, voter suppression, and inequality itself opened up a hole for him to crawl into because people have lost faith in the system.
So why do I love Donald Trump?
1) Because by loving him as a human being, he doesn’t have control of me. I disagree with his actions, but by loving him, like I would any sick person, he doesn’t live in my head. I don’t have this hatred festering inside of me and therefore he has no control of my feelings, fears, or emotions.
2) He’s showing this country all that is wrong with it. Every injustice, all the corruption, all the holes in our democracy are being amplified and if we take this opportunity to come together as human beings to agree on what needs to get fixed instead of focusing on what’s broken, we can emerge from this period in history as a truly better nation. It just takes the courage to put aside emotion, hate, and fear and focus on what will make us better in the long run.
3) He has exposed fake news. After years of watching hundreds of hours of videos that came from ‘the media, I realized that I wasn’t getting news, I was getting carefully curated and edited video to spark a reaction in me and hence earning money for the the 6 corporations that control 90% of ‘the media’. I don’t think Trump understands it; he uses the catch-phrase ‘fake news’ when he wants to deflect attention away from anything that would disturb his narrative as a great leader to his base. But the fact is, that most of the reporting Americans consume, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News, as well as print media are controlled by 6 corporations… Comcast, Time Warner, News Corp, Disney, Warner Brothers, and CBS own and control 90% of ‘the media’. Then social media and Google serve up video based on our own confirmation bias needs to keep us engaged in consuming videos that give us that dopamine hit that we’re on the right side of history. The truth is, we’re all at fault for placing all that is wrong in this country squarely on 1 person. There are thousands of people both past and present that have put this country into the state it is right now. Constantly banging on the president does nothing to repair the problems in this country. All it does is sow further and further division between each other while taking our eye off the ball of all the problems that have nothing to do with the president and the people behind it. Apart from all that, these for profit entertainment television commentary ‘news’ channels run what amounts to free advertising to people who are doing wrong by society, like mask and quarantine protesters, hence recruiting more people to join the dissidents. All of this is fake news because it’s not need, it’s entertainment that people consume, just like any other tv show, that makes money for the corporations.
Should he be re-elected… prior to the pandemic I would have been ok with him being re-elected. I wouldn’t vote for him, but like any addict, they have to hit rock bottom before they get help. And I was hoping that rock bottom would hit prior to his re-election, but I wasn’t sure it was going to happen. It was inevitable that his leadership would lead to a disaster and if it didn’t happen under his watch, whoever inherited this shit show would take the fall. But now I say Donald Trump should not be re-elected because his job of opening people’s eyes to what’s wrong with this country and activating people to address what has been going on for 4 decades with impunity has been accomplished and there’s nothing left but for us to unite as a country and actually make America a better nation.
Politicians want us to fight each other so we don’t fight them. The media fuel this fire by only reporting on what makes them money and all this has lead us to the devastated nation that we are in now. If we unite on what’s right for human beings and stop fighting each other, we have an amazing opportunity to evolve as human beings and provide fairness and equality for all… you just have to lead with love.
The way forward is to stop talking about the president and start addressing problems to the government at large. Trumps worst nightmare is if everyone stopped saying his name. He lives off of negative attention. His base thrive off it. If the left would just shut their mouths and start focusing on solutions rather than problems, we could unite and fix this nation.
