A couple of days ago I listened to an explanation about who votes for Trump and The Boys.

It was said that that people admire Trump because he does not talk like a college educated person. Plain language.

Not intellectually, but socially, his supporters have always felt inept with anybody having more than a high school education.

Much like "putting on airs" for the air heads.
Right. A key demographic of supporters is white, non college educated people.

There's more to it though, which I learned when I was immersed in American culture. Many Americans respect the abrasive, arrogant loudmouth -- it's seen as a kind of bold American character.

Even more interesting, a good number of Americans also respect the hustler and tricky business man. The idea of a scrappy guy who tricks and cons people, therefore "outsmarting" his foes. Many Americans see it as an admirable skill.

All of this applies to Trump and it appeals to a lot of people. When Trump is deceptive, or sly with his words, or trolls and baits people into doing something, many of his base cheer. The fact he has a crooked business history does not reflect badly on him.

Really, Trump is giving you a view of the kinds of things many Americans respect and value. Pretty terrible isn't it?

It is said that Trump knew the virus was airborne in January and everybody was running around looking for hand sanitizer and not face masks until early April.

^ oui, imbéciles. (y)(y)(y)(y)
It's kind of sad that people are being influenced by QAnon conspiracies. I mean who would really take a pig farmer in the Philippines with a love of Japanese pornography seriously as a source of all these deep state conspiracies? Could Q really be a pig farmer named Jim Watkins?, Who is Jim Watkins, the pig farmer who took over one of the web's most notorious hate sites?. Or a New Jersey software developer? QAnon Website Shuts Down After N.J. Man Identified as Operator - BNN Bloomberg

But then, you can't try to convince followers that what they are reading is a scam to make money, as they believe the theories are the truth. Who is behind the Qanon conspiracy? We've traced it to three people

I didn't fall for the Russian collusion hoax that many people here did. Even after it was disproven some of you still think it's true.

There was no collusion. Putin is the boss and Trump does what he is told.
That's an outright lie. A 3-year investigation stacked with 17 Democrat lawyers found absolutely no collusion.

You're not allowed to make up your own facts. I was banned for saying what Biden did even though it can be verified from several sources of national TV footage. If you can't provide proof of your claims you should be banned too.

Mods...is there a double standard?

HHS Spox Michael Caputo Tells Trump Supporters: ‘If You Carry Guns, Buy Ammunition’ Because ‘Shooting Will Begin’ When President Refuses to Stand Down

“The drills that you’ve seen are nothing,” Caputo said amid a mass of conspiracy drivel. “If you carry guns, buy ammunition, ladies and gentlemen, because it’s going to be hard to get.”

“Caputo, 58, the assistant secretary of public affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services, said without evidence that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was harboring a “resistance unit” determined to undermine President Trump.

Caputo also said that his “mental health has definitely failed,” adding “I don’t like being alone in Washington….shadows on the ceiling in my apartment, there alone, shadows are so long.”

People are wondering if Trump is really a pro-life candidate because of Trump having all those political rallies without masks,

Trump's mental decline has been swift.
The Decline of Civility has been just as swift.

I am thinking that there is something fishy happening with this virus story. Maybe it is far worse than what we are being told?

It just seems so odd to me that Trump feels comfortable to prance around in crowds.
I don't think Trump is suicidal. But he might be squeezing into End Of Times beliefs and thus fatalistic.

Maybe Trump knows that he can't dodge an airborne virus forever. Maybe Trump knows that there are multiple types and thus making vaccine futile?

I know it is kind of like a conspiracy story. I won't tell anybody this story if you don't.:)

It looks like the Trump campaign is getting a bit lazy, using stock Russian imagery to support the troops:

Bob Woodward now claims that when Trump was in TV-Land praying that people would go to church on Easter Sunday (April 12), Trump was privately calling the virus a "Plague".

Trump is really busy right now. He has a lot to think about.

COVID ?.......nope. Wildfires in the west ?.......nah. Hurricane hitting Louisiana ?......no. What then ?..........Hillary Clinton's emails.

Trump's brain has locked up with the same 2016 memories going round and round in an eternal loop. My grandfather was like that. It is dementia.

Even if he wins the election, Trump won't complete the term. VP Pence will take over at some point.

Why does Pence always look like he is peering into the sun or like he has to go poop ?

As I am typing this reply I am listening to CNN - Anderson Cooper and Woodward.

Trump is totally into the election. There will come a time that he might recognize that he has little or no chance of winning. Right now Trump is into Election mode.

When a hurricane or forest fire happens, all the politicians want to be seen in TV Land wearing a heavy heart. But that is all. Government arrives buys a few nails to rebuild and repair, but it is a joke.

It reminds me of a time years and years ago, I was watching the Journal on CBC with Barbra Frum. The story was about a home for battered women opening up and it would house 9-12 women. There were more than 20 thousand women standing in line for housing and Barbra Frum is so confident in her mannerisms, that one would think it was problem solved. And, on to the next story.

I'm thinking that if Trump shows a upward swing of support, his Tax Returns will be front page news.

The Ruling Class need Biden to win by 60 %.

The political elite have already walked away. His campaign is broke. They will destroy him if necessary.

Trump "Played" with money for 3 solid years and waltzed away with his friends, but The Ruling Class play for keeps.
