Donald Trump’s entire raison d’ etre is that he’s a really rich guy and only really rich guys know how to get stuff done. In other words, he’s a guy who inherits a sh*t load of money, cheats on his taxes , has a thousand sycophants sucking up to him–however terrible his ideas are–and convinces uneducated poor people that they too can be rich by giving guys like him more tax breaks.
Republicans have been successfully convincing working and middle-class whites to vote against their economic self-interests by exploiting social issues such as gays and Mexicans, or gay Mexicans. But Trump is a debauched libertine and could care less about such matters. He’s too busy mimicking Mussolini and offering slick marketing slogans to people who have long since felt abandoned by the Democratic party, as opposed to Bernie Sanders who is a legitimate populist.
Accidentally showing his true colors at a speech in North Dakota, Trump made the following remarks to throngs of poor people.
There’s one more thing that we must do to make America wealthy again, and you have to be wealthy in order to be great, I’m sorry to say,” Trump said during his speech in Bismarck.
I don’t know about you, but that sounds awfully similar to Mitt Romney’s “47 percent” remarks, except Trump made his in front of the cameras. Of course, his supporters will still eat his bullsh*t with a side of pink slime, while the MSM gobbles up the leftovers.
Watch the speech below:
