Trump rides a downward escalator of electoral support as his position rises with his support for the views and policies of white supremacists, Nazis and KKKONfederates and how they return the favor. He is riding the downward escalator of becoming a bigger fish in a shrinking pond.
And in his gestures, which (like his aid Stephen Miller, the reincarnation of Joseph Goebbels — compare the photos side-by-side) are peppered with the Pepe the Frog racist symbol, he not only communicates in dog whistle coded language his direct support for them, but also in his open support for them (“very fine people on all sides” — no, there are not).
Trump knows exactly what he is doing, tries to whitewash it to the general public, while very explicitly reassuring his white supremacist supporters that he has their back.
Not all Trump supporters are Nazis and KKKONfederates.
But virtually all Nazis and KKKONfederates are Trump supporters.
And all Trump supporters had to see the way Trump mocked a disabled reporter, ridiculed John McCain, Gold Star families and generals, in addition to his support for Nazis and KKKONfederates and it was not disqualifying for them.
The down escalator isn’t just about electoral support. He’s headed in the right direction…
He’s headed towards his base.
The theory ‘no one ever went broke underestimating human intelligence’ proven by all the poor people voting GOP. Trump the epitome of cracker end of the party. Bush I & II slightely smoother. Wow, never thought I’d have to say that about ’wubbulyah’’!
Hopefully someday he will be taking the escalator to hell.
When so many propagandized people — who view all news that does align with their propaganda as “fake” — and that cannot pass the US citizenship exam are allowed to vote, let us hope that better educated, Gen-y and Gen-Z vote to restore constitutional democratic republican American values and civility as the bulk of the resident’s supporters “shuffle off this mortal coil” in the next few decades.
And yet trump is just TOO DAMN STUPID to see the connection. Either that, or he DOES know it, but he will continue to LIE and deny it.
tRUMP WILL go down and all the hate groups are growing…and rising, world wide. It’s nazism all over again! While the rest of us just watch…..power, control, greed, deceit, hate has taken hold…..
Let’s hope this isn’t a funicular, in which the cars are connected by a cable loop and serve as counterbalances to each other, and when one of them hits bottom the other is at the top.
White Nationalists have found a true ally in Trump. This is on you GOP. Proud of yourselves?
Donny Boy is making his case to be on the Mt. Rushmore of racist presidents along with Woodrow Wilson and Andrew Johnson.
Trump is already at subbasement level 10. I think his dementia is getting worse and he’s channeling his dad Fred.
How can he go down; by human standers he`s already at the bottom.
“I remember you! Met ya on my way up!”
When asked about the rise of white nationalism he blamed a small group of people “with very, very serious problems.” He’s the head of that small group of people with the very very serious problems.
And every time you think he can’t go any lower, he surprises you.
What Muslim ban? I remember a temporary halt of people from a handful of nations but I never did see a “ban”. Back in 2017. Upheld by SCOTUS.
If this is the best you can do you folks are in deep shit come 2020.
Trump and his small group of people have very serious problems.
I wonder if Trump and family wish he had never taken that ride down his “golden” escalator. He’d still be scamming and conning but as a citizen there would be no Mueller or House committees investigating him.
