Donald Trump believes there is a media conspiracy against him. His aides protect themselves against his horrible rages by presenting their boss with only good news. As a result, this isolated leader has drawn an unfortunate conclusion.
POTUS claimed that his poll numbers were great in something reminiscent of The Emperor Has No Clothes:
‘Great cohesion inside the Republican Party, the best I have ever seen. Despite all of the Fake News, my Poll Numbers are great. New internal polls show them to be the strongest we’ve had so far! Think what they’d be if I got fair media coverage!’
The famous writer Hans Christian Andersen wrote his poignant fairy tale, The Emperor’s New Clothes in 1837. In essence, it said:
‘In the story the Emperor is a vain man and always wants the newest fashions. A couple of swindlers convince him that the clothes they are making him are of such fine quality that only the most elevated people can see them. He can’t admit that he’s not the most elevated person, so he wears the clothes in the palace, and everyone bows down and says what a fine set of clothes he has because they are afraid to contradict the Emperor. Then he goes out and leads a parade to show off his new clothes to the people (lack of foresight on his part, unless he thinks all his people are highly elevated.) Everyone pretends to admire the clothes except one little boy who yells out “But the Emperor has no clothes!”‘
Trump claimed his internal poll numbers were his “strongest” thus far. However, he did not go into any detail about his own polling data. The president chose to trust those numbers instead of the ones in the media that show disapproval ratings on the upswing.
Trump was not happy with Fox News’ latest polls that indicated his disapproval ratings were heading higher. Last week the network released a particularly damning number for the president’s disapproval rating — 56 percent. He said:
‘I don’t know what’s happening with Fox.’
As a result of Fox News’ information, the president has been turning to the One America News (OAN) network instead of Fox News. That network has been completely pro-Trump. However, the only problem was that OAN is a complete propaganda machine owned by the Russians.
Russia has done a great job of infiltrating America’s media and other aspects of the voters’ lives. For example, the third top-rated malware program for Mac computers is a Russian company, Kaspersky. In addition, the Russians have developed and marketed a software program that keeps passwords sorted out.
Last week another Fox News survey came out comparing the president head-to-head with the four leading Democratic presidential 2020 candidates. Every one of these candidates beat the sitting president.
