C’est fantastique! Not only has the Master Persuader jujitsued Hillary’s “deplorables” attack, but he’s turned it into a revolutionary campaign banner.
Donald Trump unveiled a new visual campaign theme in Miami on Friday – a mashup of the Broadway musical ‘Les Misérables’ and an epithet Hillary Clinton leveled at his supporters one week ago. He took the stage, introduced by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, as the ‘Les Mis’ anthem ‘Do You Hear the People Sing’ blasted through loudspeakers.
The video screen behind the podium flashed to an artistic rendering of ‘Les Deplorables,’ complete with USA and ‘Trump’ flags replacing the French colors, and a bald eagle soaring over the revolutionary scene.
‘Welcome to all of you deplorables!’ Trump boomed as thousands screamed ‘Trump! Trump! Trump!’ and ‘We love you!’
This is truly amazing. The US media wanted to free the Democrats of their Communist taint by switching the traditional colors used to denote the two major parties. Now the Republican candidate is openly running as a nationalist revolutionary.
And rick-rolling the treasonous Fourth Estate while he’s at it:
Whether you support Trump or not, you have to admit he’s pretty amazing at making the media dance along to his tune all while providing hours of complimentary media coverage. But Trump’s latest stunt has really stirred the mainstream media into a frenzy with CNN’s Jake Tapper declaring “we all got Rick-Rolled” by Trump and Politico’s Glenn Thrush tweeting “this is a f–king disgrace.”
While the media was expecting Trump to make a statement about the “birther” issue and take questions from the press, what they actually got was 30 minutes of endorsements from decorated military generals and medal of honor recipients. Finally, at the very end Trump made the following statement about Obama’s citizenship and left the event without taking questions:
Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy. I finished it. President Barack Obama was born in the United States. Period. Now we all want to get back to making America strong again.
The mainstream media, who were all salivating over the opportunity to divert attention from the myriad of Hillary scandals by instead attacking Trump at a live “press conference,” were furious when they realized they had been played.
Trump, you magnificent bastard! If he handles America’s enemies as adroitly as he has handled his political enemies, he may turn out to be one of America’s greatest presidents.
