White Trash like me
I haven't had a chance to do much political commentary the last few months. I do think that the God Emperor is pretty much operating as I had expected he would.
I am sorry that he blew up his relationship with Steve Bannon but I don't think that is permanent. I know it seems that way. What the jerkoffs in the media forget is that this has happened many times before in history of the United States. Once someone gets elected President they get rid of the advisor who had the most to do with his election because he wants to get all the credit and doesn't want to seem to be the tool of someone else. Clinton fired Dick Morris. McKinley dropped Mark Hanna. I mean shit Martin Van Buren dropped Sammy Swartwout and Tammany Hall.
Trump changes his advisors like he changes his ties. He gets them for a job and when it is done he moves on. The difference is he retains their loyalty because they understand it is just business not personal. So I would not be surprised to see Bannon back. Wait and see.
The thing is that the God Emperor has his finger on the pulse of normal Americans. The ones who elected him. Not the race baiter's and political correct virtue signalers. The estimable Don Surber has a great post explain this as he so often does. In it he quotes this mook from Yahoo Finance who actual gets it. This mook named Newman said:
Wolff, in his book, recounts a moment in which a foreigner unfamiliar with the concept asked Trump what “white trash” is. “They’re people just like me,” Trump supposedly responded. “Only they’re poor.” Does any other politician think that way? Some cross over from the wrong side of the tracks, but that’s not really the point. Trump, who grew up well off, came from the right side of the tracks, yet somehow understands the other side. The buzzards circling around him should never forget that
I think that sums it up perfectly.
