‘Bold Strategy’: People Scratch Their Heads Over Trump Telling PA Rallygoers He Didn’t Want To Be There

Nothing says, “Love me!” like dissing someone’s home and making them sick.

Axiom: every Trump accusation is in fact an admission of guilt. Drugs? check. Senility? check. Foreign agents? check. Pedophilia? check. Etc ad nauseum.

“And then we got hit with the plague, and I had to go back to work,” Trump said. “Hello, Erie. Can I please have your vote?”

Strangely enough, the comment met with cheers and applause from the crowd.

I have to assume the “strangely enough” is sarcasm, not incredulity.

Not strange at all, unfortunately. These people by and large hate themselves deep down so they love it when their hero tells them they’re worthless. I just finished watching the documentary series on the cult NXIVM. It’s exactly the same dynamic with the cult leader Keith Rainere and his followers.

I haven’t been able to figure out his attraction, He abuses people around him and they cheer. I guess some people just like to be dominated by abusers and bullies.

Nice to see him trying something new and telling the truth. I think that will work out strongly for him.

To paraphrase, “I hated having to come here and talk to you ignorant slobs, but vote for me anyway.” It really is amazing how many people in this country hold themselves in a very low regard.
