After his parched performance that was reminiscent of a child’s “what I did during my Summer vacation” classroom report, the White House staff wants America to believe that the Dumb Führer outpaced much younger staffers during his 12-day Autocrat Appreciation Tour of Asia. Pay no attention to what you see, hear and read with your own eyes.
Business Insider reports, “Multiple officials and aides were eager to promote Trump’s stamina with The Associated Press on Thursday. In interviews, they said chief of staff John Kelly had ordered a day off for staff traveling with the president and advised Trump to rest as well. However, they said, Trump insisted on quickly summarizing his trip for the American people.
‘The staff is exhausted, but he wanted to go out there,’ press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.
Trump worked on the address nearly the entire flight back to the U.S. on Tuesday, senior adviser Stephen Miller said.
Communications director Hope Hicks said she briefly pretended to be asleep when Trump visited the staff cabin aboard Air Force One to seek out Sanders.
The officials said they worried that Trump would grow frustrated with the extended time on the road but added that their concerns were unwarranted. “He never complained,” Hicks said. “He was working the entire time.”
SUUURE he was, traitor. Sure.
In the tradition of fascist dictators worldwide, we’re supposed to believe just what a superhuman Trump is.
Trump himself boasted to reporters on Air Force One, “a lot of people said it’s almost physically impossible for someone to go through 12 days, Anybody that took the bet, pick up your money.”
Just as North Koreans are brainwashed to believe Kim Jong Un is tirelessly toiling away, solving the nation’s problems, we’re all supposed to believe America’s Dim Leader never falters. Though, his inability to restrain himself from the Twitter tirade du jour proves otherwise. This type of propaganda is standard authoritarian fare.
To paraphrase a “Two-Minute Tirade” I recorded months ago, Anyone who knows history can’t help but see the disturbing authoritarian policies – and persona – of so-called President Donald Trump.
While Republicans used to complain about the “celebrity” of a mixed race man raised by a single mom who worked his way into the highest executive office in the land, they turned around and made a reality TV celebrity their front runner. He’s their guy because he vows to “make America great” by being like the fascist autocrats he openly admires and undermining every democratic ideal this country stands for.
When Trump’s doctor proclaimed that Trump would be “the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency,” honestly, I couldn’t help but of the lessons of history.
If you go to museums or look online at Roman Portraiture, you’ll see that the subjects during the Roman Republic were depicted realistically, but the first emperor, Augustus started a trend. Though he ruled for 40 years until the age of 75, he was always portrayed as a virile, young and… well… the healthiest Roman who ever lived.
For those who don’t know Roman history, we may call Augustus the “First Roman Emperor,” but the people of Rome called him “Principis Civitatis” or “First Citizen of the State”. Augustus ruled absolutely under the veneer of a Republic that lasted nearly 500 years. This thing of ours should not be taken for granted – especially when fundamentally undemocratic conservatism is continuously undermining our republic from within.
The fascist autocrat Trump isn’t some outrageous outlier on the fringe of Republicanism, he is everything they are. Remember. Trump isn’t going against the Republican agenda, he’s revealing it.
