Discussion: Trump On Obama's Anti-Police Violence Speech: There's ‘Something Going On’

“something going on”
This guy’s an idiot. He says nothing so many different ways. I am angry at myself for reading his comments.

That’s slimier than Joe McCarthy, which is saying something.
Roy Cohn taught Trump well.

I have renamed the mute button on my remote the Trump button.
I have this compelling urge to take a shower every time I hear him speak.

“There’s just a bad feeling, a lot of bad feeling about him. I see it too. There’s a lot of bad feeling about him,” Trump replied.
“But you just look at the body language and there’s something going on. Look, there’s something going on.” (DTrump)

Yes, there’s most certainly a bad feeling – and something most certainly is going on: Donald J. Trump, the tax-evading, swindling, narcissist, rapist is repeating himself … over and over and over. Learn that from Mr. Cohn, did we? Repeat something long enough and loud enough … and it becomes “believed as reality.”

what i going on is that this fellow is brilliant at the intellectually vacant statement that corresponds to what the average, undereducated white American “feels.” The critical thinking skills of the average American are negligible. Trump is reaping the benefit of that limitation. AND, he milks it. This is classic BS, but it is BS that is directed at one thing only: “let’s take our country back from these people who do not look like us.”

He may be an idiot, but what he’s doing here isn’t that. He’s insinuating that black people are up to something nefarious and that Obama’s signalling them in some way that only they can pick up on. Is it a wildly stupid assertion? Yes. Is it useful to incite racial tensions within his reactionary white base who’s primed to believe such things? Yes. trump’s trying to gin up a perceived race war and wants to position himself on the side of “law and order” as our guardian against “them”. The strategy is reprehensible and disgusting, but isn’t just the result of trump being an idiot; it’s quite deliberate.

“What does that mean, there’s something going on?” host Brian Kilmeade asked.

“There’s just a bad feeling, a lot of bad feeling about him. I see it too. There’s a lot of bad feeling about him,” Trump replied.

I figured it out.

Roy Cohen taught him to say anything to win. Truth is irrelevant.

He’s absolutely right. If Obama didn’t attract all of those racists, everything would be fine and dandy.

It goes beyond that. Cohen encouraged Trump’s inherent narcissism. He allowed Trump to justify his complete lack of interest in (indeed, perhaps an inability to tell the difference) distinguishing truth from falsehood.

If Trump cannot figure that out thenhe has no business getting in office. He’s the goddam problem.

Wasn’t the pivot away from the crazy, derp soaked paranoia supposed to happen before now? It’s clear that this is who trump is and there will be no such pivot.

Can’t you just hear Reince’s impotent pleas? “Mr trump sir, you’ve already solidified the white supremacist vote, you don’t need to keep throwing them bones.”
