When Donald Trump found out his poll ratings with The Blacks were at intolerably low levels because they hate him because he said Obama was a lying, cheating fraud who wasn’t a US Citizen and was an illegitimate president….. when Donald got wind of The Blacks’ attitude towards him he immediately fixed it by showing up at a black church in Detroit, dancing with them, and telling them that Lincoln was a Republican. They cheered, forgot why they hated him, and took to heart his promise to rid the streets of crime, create and bestow upon them jobs, and keeping any would-be Motor City-bound Mexicans from moving anywhere near their neighborhoods. A wall on the Ohio border would be a good start. The blacks loved it. They pledged to give Donald a chance. They had put the other party in charge of their city for a long time and it’s only fair they give Donald a shot. Donald rocketed in popularity with the Blacks. All the nice, white housewives around Columbus and Philly and Charlotte now like him too because he’s a wonderfully inclusive, generous man who loves all the people and will continue his campaign of inclusion.
Now that Typhoid Hillary dances the Rockin Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu but tried to hide it to prove Donald was wrong when he said she was just like Jeb…. no stamina and low energy… she needs a way out. Not just on the health issue but on her “deplorables” riff from Friday night, which completely turned around a building advantage she’d had when Donald late in the week continued to heap praise on Vladimir Putin and had again demonstrated his complete lack of temperament by threatening war with Iran over ships that “bother us.” He’d already crazily brought back his wish that we should have plundered Iraq’s oil in a war that he continues to lie about his early support of the 2003 invasion. Hillary gave up all that late-week advantage by going Trump: telling her rally people what they wanted to hear… that half of Trump supporters are less-than-American goons. Topped with (excuse me for this) Pneumoniagate, she was like a football team up 31-0 at the half determined to blow the game.
For the record, Charles Blow of the New York Times writes, it doesn’t matter if the essence of what Hillary said is true. It just doesn’t matter. It’s bad politics. She provided Trumpworld with the Soundbite From Heaven.
“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people — now 11 million. He tweets and retweets their offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric. Now some of those folks — they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America.”
Bad news, girl…. they are a part of America and a politician can’t mouth off like that with such cavalier arrogance and not pay a price. Unless your name is Donald and that’s the entire essence of your being. But remember the story at the top of this post and what Trump did to turn it around. (ok, I know he really didn’t turn anything around, but this is for demonstration and entertainment purposes only) As Motown girl Diana Ross wrote:
Reach out and touch
Make this world a better place
If you can
That’s right, Hillary, you gotta get out there and meet those racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, any kind of phobic you’ve offended. Even the arachibutyrophobics, who live in fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of their mouth. Ok, that’s a fake one that was first mentioned in the Peanuts comic strip. Back to Charles Blow:
What Clinton said was impolitic, but it was not incorrect. There are things a politician cannot say. Luckily, I’m not a politician. Donald Trump is a deplorable candidate — to put it charitably — and anyone who helps him advance his racial, religious and ethnic bigotry is part of that bigotry. Period. Anyone who elevates a sexist is part of that sexism. The same goes for xenophobia. You can’t conveniently separate yourself from the detestable part of him because you sense in him the promise of cultural or economic advantage. That hair cannot be split.
Furthermore, one doesn’t have to actively hate to contribute to a culture that allows hate to flourish.
Hillary’s Outreach & Listening Tour For the Deplorables!
Out to Idaho to some white supremacist outpost. Hanging out with 8 Minnesota Vikings fan-guys in a Mankato Mancave on a Sunday afternoon to cover both your sexism and homophobe remark. Plenty of Coor’s Light, for some reason. Xenophobia can be handled as you uncomfortably make your way though a NASCAR crowd September 25th at the New England 300 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Your numbers in the Granite state are not as good as they should be. This could turn it around. Finally, you need to get good with the Islamophobes. They’re widely scattered. I suggest a dinner at an Afghan restaurant in New York with Bill OReilly and Ann Coulter. Not only can you cover Islam, but they are like a couple human center spaces on your Bingo Card of the Offended. They really hate you, and everything else that’s not white male Christian. Make OReilly pick up the tab. You’ll fare as well as Donald did in Detroit.
Maybe even better!
