Also why has everything thrown at him turned to ash and actually made him stronger, politically it is the most baffling thing I have ever
I would look at it like this...
Let's take 2 persons and make the political figureheads.
Political Guy 1 - Doesn't give a damn what people say about him. Shrugs it off and redirects the finger pointing. You call him a bully and he takes
it in and says, "Yes, I'm a bully, but only because the people against me have made me this way. Yes, I was part of the game. I know the game
because I was a part of it and I wish to expose it".
Political Guy 2 - Always defends himself. Everything that is thrown at him, he tries to explain why it's not right or why it is the way it is. Seems
to shy away from the rock throwing. He might even toss a few back.
So you have two people, one is passive and the other aggressive. People are going to follow the smartass. They're going to follow the one that
doesn't care. The ones that doesn't show weakness. The one that will accept what he's painted with and direct it to the real problem (or at least
make up the real problem and point it right back to the very thing that people don't like... Big Money, Politics).
He claims to be what half the world wants. He's part of the problem and doesn't hide the fact. He admits that he is and since he knows and lives it,
he tells you he will dismantle it. People don't want someone who's going to hide behind a mask. We're more prone to believe someone who will admit
their faults and give that person a chance than someone who claims they are faultless. Every politician claims the other is bad but they themselves
are the chosen one for some purpose. Trump shows his true self and isn't afraid to let it show. People are eating that up.
I'm a crook. I've been a crook my whole life. I know how crooks work. I know the game and I'm tired of it. Elect me to bring out and get rid of
all of the crooks. Who better to do it than me... the crook, because I know how it works.
I would believe the above statement more than.....
I've been an upstanding person all of my life and I'm tired of corruption. Vote for me and I'll get rid of ALL of the bad people.
We all know the second statement is likely false. No one is perfect. May as well vote for the guy who isn't lying to you than the guy you KNOW is
lying to you. One is hiding nothing while the other is hiding behind his words. Sure they both may be, but you know for a fact one is telling you
This is how I see trump. This is why I feel people are flocking to him. This is why I feel that no matter what he does and no matter what people are
doing against him, he's coming out strong. People know it'll strengthen him because they see people trying sooooo hard to stop him so they know it
must be worth something. People are sick and tired and are now ready to fight fire with fire... Fight the corrupt with the corrupt.
Besides... We all secretly like the smartass. They're the life of the party as long as we ourselves don't have to deal with them. I see it in the
workplace. Know it alls are humorous to watch, until they're telling us how everything is.
and..... He's the debil!
