Can't stump the Trump.

Whether you like Trump or not, we need him as President.

We don't need Trump as president because he would necessarily make the USA a better place, but because it would be more entertaining than anything to ever happen in American politics. Imagine, waking up on a Thursday morning and sitting in traffic on your way to work. You hate your job, you hate your boss, and you hate where you live. But you know, that there is an egotistical tanning-bed loving billionaire tycoon flying around the world on a jet, screaming into the phone at other countries' leaders. He's tweeting about the "tremendous success" of the Mexican wall, he's tweeting photos of himself hanging out with Putin, he's writing executive orders on a weekly basis, he's slapping down tariffs on trade with China like it's nothing, he's shit talking the media for recreation, and he's yelling at you about job growth on cable TV.

 We NEED somebody who will run this country like a business.

Here's a fact. Americans are fucking nervous. People have foreclosed on their homes, they've lost their jobs, they've had to move around the country to find new jobs, they've moved in with family members, they've taken on 2-3 jobs at once just to pay a SHITTY rent payment.

We're sick of this bullshit. Social justice is worthless if there aren't any jobs. We need jobs. We need a president who knows business. We need a president who can bring back manufacturing.

Have you seen the way our country has become? It's a fucking joke compared to what it once was, we are ruled by stupid Politically correct jargon amongst other things. Trump is tapping into that anger. That is why many of the social welfare and political class  are scared shitless, they can't go against the people who donated to them.

Trump can anger as many people as he wants as he has the funds and resources to back up his claims, he will continue to double down until the campaign ends.

The Donald's recipe is to play hardball and stop America from getting bent all the time and be at the mercy of interests that often conflict with those of the American people who the president is supposed to represent (rather than being the shill of some interest groups). Remember that he's talking off the cuff. He's played by the same rules as everyone else as a businessman and thinks it's not good for America, and he's right, it's definitely not good in the longer term.

I like the comment he made about China and other countries having geniuses as negotiators and America having incompetents. Now, clearly there's hyperbole, but he makes a valid point about how it seems like some actually important but not necessarily the most visible roles have become like awards. You need tough and smart people to close deals, not nice guys, SJWs, and idealists. You need people who understand how the world works. Obama projected weakness from the beginning of his presidency, and inevitably many of his appointments also project weakness. Considering all his administration has done, I only wonder what kind of people, including people not even working primarily in the interests of the US, he had doing important negotiations and handling diplomacy. The age-old dynamics of power haven't really changed so a healthy dose of cynicism is needed not to get fucked over because in your heart of hearts you want to believe in humans and thereby become vulnerable and get your weakness exploited.

Having a personality like Donald Trump as president would seriously make me believe that I am living in the greatest country on earth. Vote for Trump for American history. Vote for Trump for global butthurt. But most importantly, vote for Trump for the lulz.
