Trump-Deal with it!

Trump has landed

There is only one man to stop Trump: Trump himself.

The 2016 Republican primary has turned into a puzzle about how to deal with the Donald singularity. Trump will not hire a pollster. He is letting go about as many senior consultants from his campaign as he has hired. He does his own debate preparation. He does not spend on advertising. He refuses to seek big campaign contributions. He says he gets military advice from watching television and reading news. He warns his rivals not to use his campaign slogan, “Make America great again”, which he has trademarked. He does not finish three sentences without bragging about his business deals, his Ivy League education, his golf scores or his ranking in the polls. Trump is running, he is running the show; he is running his own show.

If you want to understand what is happening in North America right now, what is happening in the United States, you need only listen to that message of disgust, for the political system, its falsehoods and failures, which has taken Trump to the top of the Republican polls. You need only to listen to the Trump’s discourse. He talks about foreign policy, about immigration, about economy like it was a business deal just waiting for a smarter guy to take control of the situation. “When was the last time that you saw this country have a victory? We don’t have victories,” he tells reporters. “What things am I going to do different? Almost everything.” And then, on his plans for a great wall on the southern border, which he says he can threaten Mexico to fund: “Nobody is going through my wall. Trump builds walls. I build walls.”

You do not need a focus group to translate the Trump’s discourse: To support Trump is to oppose the established order, not because of ideology but only because you have just had enough of the squabbling politicians, the dynastic political clans, the system of these so-called distinguished people of the elite who promise but cannot or will never deliver. It is to say aloud that you are ready to trade in the phoniness of the political process for an accomplished wheeler-dealer who never backs down and get the job done. It is a sense that all the elites are in it for themselves and nobody else. It is a reminder that performance matters, not only words. It is a reminder that a true showman, even in his worst days, can beat and outrank all competition.

Trump is a walking, talking wake-up call for the GOP and the media. If anyone dares to challenge him, whoever it is, he is relentless and whatever he say or do, wright or wrong, rather than falling in the polls, he continues to climb.

Again: the Trump Show is far from over!

Why Not Donald Trump for President?

The billionaire businessman is at it again

Donald J. Trump is known for his brash behavior and shameless bravado. For years he has given his personal and unwarranted opinion on everything including political matters. Now, he has set his sights on the presidency of the United States, and he doesn’t seem too worried about who he offends on his way there. Despite his claims and comments are often inaccurate, negative and divisive and a campaign that defies political, he continues to rise reaching new heights in opinion polls.

The Republican powers have never been on Trump’s side. But Trump, tapping into an anger and resentment among conservatives who feel that establishment politicians are ignoring their concerns and diminishing their issues and with his latest bit of political performance, is turning his party upside-down.

“Talk about issues”

The nine other Republican candidates for the investiture of their party, given the opportunity, will express their views and frustration regarding Trump’s campaign and behavior. Recently Mike Huckabee expressed his frustration at the single-mindedness of the reporters surrounding him: “Do we have another non-Trump question?” He asked. “I’m running for president, I’m not running for social media critic of someone else who’s running for president. Talk to me about issues.”

About Megyn Kelly

Following his unwillingness to commit to supporting the Republican nominee if he isn’t it, his general cluelessness about foreign policy specifics and the Megyn Kelly’s Incident, for some, it seems that Trump had lost the Republican crowd. But does that mean he lost his commanding lead he had in the latest round of public opinion polls? That we will soon find out.

Let me tell you: the Trump Show is far from over.

Débat des chefs mes fesses!

Bozo et ses amis: “Bonjour les copains!”

Pour une fois, nous allons savoir exactement ou nous nous situons.

Pour ce qui est de la corruption, celle-ci a toujours été et sera toujours… telle est la nature de l’homme! (Dixit Dieu lui-même) “Dès sa naissance, l’homme est porté vers le mal et le pouvoir corrompt…. Pauline et son foulard blanc, Legault et Elliot Ness…. Nous repasserons!

La souveraineté! Une utopie… Nous l’avons perdu la guerre depuis longtemps et de nos jours, la seule souveraineté possible, à moins de prendre les armes et de l’imposer (Dixit Bush)… celle d’une seule nation universelle dans un monde renouvelé (Dixit Jésus Christ Mahomet et tous les ayatollah et vaticinateurs de ce monde).

Enfin Madame David, oui battons-nous pour un Québec solidaire dans la merde et la médiocrité (Dixit moi-m’aime).

Oui ma belle Carole, c’est l’heure du test… Nous verrons bien quel Bozo sera élu. En ce qui me concerne, peu importe qu’il soit bon ou médiocre, il n’y en a qu’un seul qui, au moins, sur la scène nationale et internationale donne une bonne impression… je dis bien impression et de nos jours, que de plus importants que les apparences. Regardez moi toutes ces poitrines et ces Ferrari. En effet, et je le crois fermement, l’intelligence est certainement inversement proportionnelle à la grosseur des seins ou de la voiture.

Ce que nous allons, encore une fois probablement démontrer.
