Trump’s rally in Tulsa was disappointing, said all commentators that I saw.
That’s not what I noticed.
These educated analysts pondered the words spoken. Big mistake.
What comes across most is the tone, not the words.
True to their whole administration, the words of Pence and Trump had no relationship with objective truth whatsoever.
They gave a beautiful overview of all the types of lies a person can construct. From half-truth to demagogy, from plain lies to false comparisons. From milking sentiments over reason to well-known prejudices. From flattery to the construction of virtual enemies (the press). From straw man arguments to lies by omission (BLM not at all).
However. Most people don’t care about words or logic. They will mostly look at the neckties and hear the tone. And while Pence’s tone was boring as always, it was an easy act to follow.
What all the haters of Trump in their jealousy still can’t admit is that Trump is an excellent speaker. When I thought of Biden in comparison, I cringed.
Trump’s speech was stronger than ever before. He reminded me of Hitler’s speeches. Not in content and not in intention, not in tone and not in morality. But in the perfection of how they played their crowds.
The Democratic Party still has time to replace Biden or pray to G^d that he needs someone else to step in. It should not be someone with an angry voice because that also is inferior to the macho self-confident Trump.
Rather, it must be a speaker so calm that Trump sounds angry in comparison. Bloomberg. Yang.
While so much preciousness has collapsed under Trump’s disastrous rule, he might still win Four More Years through his oratory talents. The only gift a salesman of defunct secondhand cars has.
Just like Kennedy won because of his ‘nice dark complexion’ at the first debate on TV, Trump may win just by his inflections, silly as it may sound. As vain as is personality and as vain as his election may be his reelection.
