As Red has acknowledged, Trump is without doubt the greatest con man who has ever walked the face of the earth. But as Red has also acknowledged it is hard to keep the con going for the long haul. In presidential terms, the long haul is anything beyond the first six months or so.
Trump’s cons on the American people have been extensive. In no particular order he has conned a good portion of Americans into believing: (1) his massive tax cut was not an enormous give back to the wealthiest among us and would benefit the middle class; (2) we are winning trade wars that would benefit working Americans; (3) Russia did not interfere in the 2016 election to help him get elected; (3) our military was in a shambles until Trump took over; (4) he is a self-made man who received a mere pittance of a $1 million loan from his father when he actually inherited more than $400 million in current dollars; (5) he is an expert on the military, science, climate change, foreign policy, economics and any other subject that happens to come up; (6) North Korea is no longer a threat; (7) Ukraine intervened to attempt to get Hillary elected; (8) it was a perfect telephone call; (9) he has drained the “swamp” in DC; (10) he is an extremely stable genius.
But now we have entered in what can only be called the “Snake Oil” phase of Trump’s Reality TV Show Joke of a Presidency. Faced with a real crisis, Trump clearly has no plan of action. He lurches from moment to moment falling prey to whatever the Fox or OAN talking heads are saying. First it was hydroxychlorquine that would be the miracle cure all that would rid of the scourge of COVID-19. Hallelujah Brother! Then it was a combination of that chemical with a Z-Pack that cure what ails us. Can I get an Amen? Then it was that the virus would just magically disappear in April. A Miracle Cure Indeed! But the latest and greatest of Trump’s con on America is something that would make even the most jaded con man blush. We can now be healed and brought back to vitality simply by injected ourselves with disinfectant and somehow lighting up our insides. Wash Me Clean Sister! Red is reeling in the pure ecstasy of Trump’s divine revelation. Red will be retiring to his private tanning bed and mainlining some Mr. Clean.
But seriously folks, Trump is nothing more than a pure Snake Oil salesman. He isn’t traveling anymore but he has his own reality TV show. But if this latest utter farce does not reveal Trump as the dishonest huckster that he is and always has been – there is no hope for us. If you are still considering voting for this piece of walking human filth in November – you are an IDIOT. There is no other way to put it.
