I’m giving this some claps not because I fully agree with it, but because I think it has some good insights into Trump’s thinking.

Now, don’t get all carried away with that thought, brothas and sistas and all types who don’t want a label (call me whatever, so long as it is not jackalope.)

Because Trump’s thinking and political strategizing, while brilliant enough to ride his Horse of Apprenticeship into the White House, has plenty of limits and actually being able to properly diagnose and defeat Bernie Sanders is, in my humble opinion, very likely one of them.

Because for all the talk of “socialism bad” coming from Team Trumpistan, well, there are enough Americans who are at least asking, “Maybe, but is capitalism better?” that such labels are mere 20th century tools in a 21st century fight.

Sure, those tools will win over some who are still comfortable enough and dominated by the fears that exist only in their minds enough, and that may even swing a Battleground state or two, but there’s long been a growing tide in America recognizing that this Systemic Machine has been giving everyday people the Shaft of Life, so it’s time to throw a monkey wrench into that Machine and bring some sanity back into our collective life.

Trump’s too psychologically immature and unaware to understand any of this so while his magic tricks may have pulled the wool over the eyes of 10s of millions of people, they aren’t skilled enough to cause millions ot of people to reject their real, everyday, lived experiences of for mere illusions.
