How Trump Tried to Use Confusion to Become a Dictator

by | Oct 27, 2021 | Opinions

Soon, Trump's towers will come down and more and more will see him for what he really is, neither a genius nor stable, but just a guy who did a magic trick designed to pick your pocket and set him up as dictator.

The former President really found the simplest of formulas to control others: Create confusion and be the stability. He has all these towers and hotels and golf courses, things you can “put your hands on.” There are photos and such if you can’t go there and rallies that create an impression of size and power. Then he got into 1600 and boy was he the guy, the stable guy who had all the answers.

He just kept creating confusion throughout his reign and telling us that only he had the answers, never admitting a failure or lapse in judgement. It was always someone else’s fault and he gave himself an A+. Stable, stable very stable, look at me, my viewpoint never changes.

Step up to the cameras and simply create doubt and be the solution, never tell us what the solution is, simply to trust that he would have it. Stability.

Then he lost and tried to create even more confusion so that he could get himself reinstated as the stable thing, the one thing that could handle the confusion. He failed but can’t admit that.

This is why he doesn’t want anything monumental passed by Congress because it has less and less to do with him, he is more and more distant from being the stable genius he sold to so many.

And nothing needs to replace him in stability because he was always a “stability” sitting on a more truly stable thing which was the country and the rule of law. Hey, it keeps plugging along, right? It was just stable enough to keep him from taking it over and becoming the new absolute stability, the US of Trump.

But he is failing, every day a bit more failure because he no longer has anything under his false stability.

Soon, his towers will come down and more and more will see him for what he really is, neither a genius nor stable, but just a guy who did a very nice verbal sleight of hand. A magic trick designed to pick your pocket and set him up as dictator.

Dictators are the stable leaders in his mind—remember how he loves them?—because they own it all, even the law.
