Politicians think that the American people are stupid, and/or they are apathetic. A disgusted Democratic Kansas state senator gave that brief insight into politicians’ thinking. The White House and the 2020 Donald Trump campaign have been guilty of thinking the people of this great country are stupid.
We know, of course, that the people surrounding POTUS have been yes men and women. The ones who told him the truth have been long gone. What happened to this president was that his fantasy world collided with reality in the Bank of Oklahoma auditorium.
Trump was livid. Tuesday morning, he decided to blame a “rigged election.” No logic to that answer, but such is this president’s thinking. He tweeted:
‘Barr: Mail-in Ballots ‘Absolutely Opens the Floodgates to Fraud‘ breitbart.com/clips/2020/06/ via @BreitbartNews. This will be the Election disaster of our time. Mail-In Ballots will lead to a RIGGED ELECTION!’
Just looking out over that sea of empty blue seats during the president’s attempt to kick off his campaign was disastrous. Trump was sniffing around to root out the guilty parties, but all of the people were guilty of believing Americans were stupid enough to unnecessarily leave their homes, throw down their masks, and walk into that Petri-dish suicide environment of Trump”s rally.
POTUS found it impossible to believe that Oklahomans valued the lives of their children, their families, and their friends over him. Only a little under 6,200 people fell for Trump’s lies. The rest stayed home, because they did not want to die. They were not stupid.
The president blamed teens on the social media TikToc for buying up the tickets as a scheme, and it was. Then, he blamed the media for intimidating people who were then afraid to come on in. It was not.
The Trump campaign people saw the disastrous showing in the reddest of states, and realized that the only way 45 would win was through cheating. They decided to go after the mail-in ballots calling the November election loss due to ballolts being “printed by foreign countries:”
‘RIGGED 2020 ELECTION: MILLIONS OF MAIL-IN BALLOTS WILL BE PRINTED BY FOREIGN COUNTRIES, AND OTHERS. IT WILL BE THE SCANDAL OF OUR TIMES!’
Then, there was this president’s hand-selected former National Security Adviser (NSA) John Bolton’s leaked book. POTUS never liked him, he said, because of Bolton’s signature mustache. Trump tweeted that the author was “a wacko,” “grossly incompetent,” and “a liar.” Although, the commander-in-chief could have been talking about himself. He was not. Yet, he was wrong on at least one point: people who know the former NSA say Bolton was many things, but never a liar:
‘I gave John Bolton, who was incapable of being Senate confirmed (sic) because he was considered a wacko, and was not liked, a chance. I always like hearing differing points of view. He turned out to be grossly incompetent, and a liar. See judge’s opinion. CLASSIFIED INFORMATION!!’
Twitter world went crazy when Trump went after mail-in ballots. Check out what they had to say below:’
