The press is still making Trump win

Making Donald Great Again
Making Donald Great Again

The critical US press gave Trump his election victory and it hasn’t learned anything yet.

Every time that very neat newsreaders attack the President who flatters the working class, the criticisms backfire and these voters like him more.

They keep hammering on the facts but he’s not liked for the facts.

And he makes fun of everyone with his underpaid voters loving it.

The press is still making Trump win, against their own deep wishes.

At a Loss

Besides having no clue about what makes the working class tick, and not trying to learn that either, the media also don’t understand Trump’s policy on losses. Losses don’t matter!

We’re dealing with a businessman whose incompetence earned him promotion. He tries all kinds of things. If it works, he builds on it. If it fails he cuts his losses, ignores it as irrelevant, lies that it was a great success and focuses on his next gambles. Loss is irrelevant.

But the media can’t get enough of analyzing his failures.

Trump laughs about it and his voters with him. Only losers brood about problems. We’re winners. Laughing all the way to the bank, even if we don’t have a cent to our name.

Show Times

Most people, when they’re poor and depressed enough, they go ignore it. Watch soaps or royalty or … Trump.

If nothing works and the roof leaks, what’s more fun than see their president toy with these wise-guys? And they let him.

Every outrageous outlandish tweet or uttering by him provokes a storm of shock and confusion among commentators. He’s like a baby finding out that these giant seemingly omnipotent grownups go berserk the second you throw food on the floor. I must try that again! Apparently, I’m not that powerless.

Ignore Him

Don’t blame the voters for taking him seriously as long as the news takes him seriously.

Instead, every tweet of his should be fact-checked by a serious voice, not in view. No commentators. No comments.

If you know that someone is a fake, why study his remarks? Ignore him. That will drive him up the wall, make him bored and will make him want to leave.

Stop pampering him with attention.

About the Author
The author is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (DES - Diethylstilbestrol), born in 1953 to two Holocaust survivors in The Netherlands, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a vegan for 8 years now. His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second generation Dutch Holocaust survivors. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. How ironic that he who had three times 90 for Dutch at his finals is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew. G-d definitely has a sense of humor. His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach and LBCHLCH, Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo and Rav Zev Leff. Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. His fields of attention are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine, Science, Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism), Oppression and Liberation (of young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQI, foreigners, and anyone else who's dehumanized and exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation) and Veganism. Many of his posts will relate to current affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or to new insights that suddenly befell him. He always tries to bring something original and to avoid boring you or wasting your time with the obvious. He has moved - with his library. To sort this out will easily take half a year. Therefore, for the time being, no more 6 blog posts per week. But he hopes to be back full force after Pesach. Meanwhile, he feels that many of the hundreds of posts he wrote are worth (re)reading so that he's not really abandoning his readers.
