Trump is not a ''villian'', he is a ''vaudevillian''

In the recent kerfuffle centering around Trump's tweets about 4 US Congresswomen an interesting little snippet has slipped through the barrage of partisan screaming and defending.

As we all likely know by now, last weekend the president sent out tweets attacking these women claiming they should go back to the countries they came from. These tweets have been charged with being racist as the four women are women of other than Caucasian ancestry and have been defended as patriotic in that the women have been very critical of the Trump administration.

At a campaign rally on Wednesday evening Trump set about being his own warm up act, presenting his audience with a smattering of jokes and wisecracking comments about his perceived opponents all the while making funny little facial and hand gestures. His audience laughed and cheered and applauded his antics. The cheering was almost automatic when he would list the ''good'' things that he has done while at the mention of things done and said by his opponents, booing would ensue.



Just like a fun night at the vaudeville. At a vaudeville, when the hero comes on stage the crowd cheers and claps and when the evil villain arrives all the audience boos and hisses. All on cue. In this type of entertainment venue the symbiosis of stage and audience become one as the actors on stage time their acting and dialogue to fit with the responses from the crowd. Trump has perfected this style of presentation. He is after all a veteran of the entertainment industry.

Once the fun stuff was over, Trump set in with more serious issues. As he rolled into the issue of his latest antagonist, the four congresswomen and most specifically the one woman who is not a native born citizen, his crowd seemed to not understand that the fun side of the rally had come to an end. They still wanted to carry on with the vaudeville atmosphere they were enjoying. So in good audience participation fashion they took a cue from his statements earlier in the week and began to chant, Send her home send her home.
Above, in the video we can see a slight smile of accomplishment on Trump's face as he stands, like a good vaudevillian, waiting patiently as the audience takes it's place as part of the show. Once the audience participation, ''send her back, send her back'' has run it's course and comes to a trickling end, Trump resumes his speech.

The opposition reaction to this fun evening at the ''ole opry'' was swift and decisive. To many, this evening of joviality was considered to akin political rallies held in public places in a time and place far removed from modern America.

The next day, as Trump entertained media for another event, he was asked about the chanting at his rally the night before. To the question Trump stated several times that he did not agree with the sentiment expressed by the crowd and likewise claimed twice that he did not like it and cut it short by speaking again quickly, though by watching the video clip from the night before this can be seen as being far from the truth.





But the most telling moment of that response to the question asked was when Trump said, in reference to his supporters, ''they said it, not me.'' Watching his eyes as he says this, his eyes turn down and to the side appearing as the eyes of a little child when his mummy asks him '' who broke my china''

''They did it mummy, not me'' . Those telling down turned eyes displayed looming defeat in that battle and the only way in which he could escape responsibility was to reluctantly throw his ardent supporters under the bus

Trump then quickly and abruptly turns away and changes the subject as fast as he can, a whole lot faster than he had quelled the chanting mob of supporters the night before.

He's more like the Wizard of Oz, a huckster who has by chance found himself in charge of the Emerald City, but to maintain his control he's willing to send a child and her dim-witted friends out to fight for their lives against a witch.

So what is your point in your narrative. I suggest that Trump is forcing the Democrats to support these women and their crazy ideals, and so by supporting them the party owns their craziness too. When it comes time to vote the Democrat's new crazy views will be what the 44% non-voters from the last election will see. Remember only 28% voted for Hillary and 27% voted for Trump...How much of the 44% non-voters will back away from the left's extremism that these four women shine in and vote for Trump even if they hate his tweets with a passion. Also remember Creepy Joe is like the one moderate in the bunch of extremists.

Nicely expressed Blue, though the ''by chance'' part is questionable. He had relatively astute advisers like Bannon whose political savvy was acute enough to spin him around a couple of times and push him in the direction of the stage primed with enough conservative talking points to thrill the rising tumult within the conservative community.

I put it out there rather plainly Xtro. By having to ask what is the point it is clear that you either missed it or do not wish to comprehend it. My point being that this OP was about TRUMP and not about Democrats or Hillery or even about the four congresswomen.

The majority of Americans do not approve of “the squads” socialist views. A week earlier Nancy Pelosi was fighting with the squad which showed a separation between the radicals and the moderate Democrats .

Trump sends out one tweet and changes everything. The moderate Dems are forced to defend the radical socialist . Which puts them both in camp together in the average Americans eye.

it’s going to be a lot easier to win in 2020 if all Democrats are associated with the radical socialist’s insane and offensive ideas .

Well played POTUS unite the Democratic Party and weaken its position in one stroke.

Everything Trump does has a reason.

The Don is the funniest President we have ever had.
His stand up comedy tour in 2025 will sell out in minutes.

Yes, everything Trump does has a reason. That reason is to protect innocent little Donny from the big bad wolf. Even if it means tossing off those who support him.

I have to agree completely but for the 2025 part. 2020 will be fine for me for him to kick off his tour. I have no doubt that he will be profiting from his supporters for years and years to come. Wanna buy a T shirt?

It's nice to think that it was all thoughtfully planned out from the beginning. But I'm still going with the "he flew in on a runaway balloon" theory. Bannon, I suppose, to continue the metaphor, was like the wind.

To be honest...I can't hold it against the man. It's the crowd that is so willfully being manipulated that scares me the most.

S & f

I like the comparison to vaudeville, but the policing of chants, cheers and tweets is the same old political correctness we have come accustomed to. So it’s no surprise that a once sensible analogy veers right back into the MSM’s narrative.

And I won't. Because I do not know what the ''average'' American thinks, like you believe you do. But enough with entertaining your thread drift.

I"m of a mind that much of what you say is true. I am one who thinks that he was just in it for the brand boost, a leg up for new enterprise in media ownership and content. It was like he through the ring and hooped a Mercades at the beach arcade.
