Trump's alternative reality TV convention....

tests his beliefs about people. The President sees strength in deception, but voters seem to be growing wary. They should.

 

This is what an alternative reality world sounds like:

 

Instead, as he asks voters for a second term, he has turned the Republican National Convention into a fantasyland version of his presidency. In this carefully curated world, staged by federal officials in Washington and Jerusalem, Trump has defeated the coronavirus, saved the economy, built a border wall, established peace in the Middle East, recalled U.S. forces from theaters of war, and even become a champion of immigrants at a time when he is sharply curtailing their access.

 

The distance between reality and Trump's presentation is both a glaring weakness for the president and a gap in which he sees strength heading into the November election.

 

"Pretty optics can hide ugly truths."

 

 

His successes in life, from gaining fame as a real estate developer when his projects were going bankrupt to hosting a highly rated reality TV show and winning the presidency in part on promises he couldn't keep, have taught him pretty optics can hide ugly truths effectively, particularly when people want to believe the false narrative. And yet, polls show crucial blocs of the electorate have grown tired of deceptions that cover up death tolls, economic devastation and government by chaos.

So far, the Republican National Convention has provided little reason for them to stop believing their own experience and start believing Trump's tale.

 

 

Trump's convention from the alternative reality.

Before Trump, the Republican Party was a legitimate party with traditional political philosophies. That included:

  • Reducing the Deficit and the Debt
  • Smaller Government
  • 100% support for NATO
  • Support for Law Enforcement, especially the FBI
  • Free Trade / No Tariffs
  • Standing up to Russia
  • Standing up to North Korea
  • etc.

All of the above was turned upside down by Comrade Trump. EasyEd apparently doesn't get it. The only thing which matters in the Republican CULT is what Trump says, does, or thinks. Then every members of the party clicks their heels and says "Heil Trump"!

It is no longer the RNC, thanks to the CULT, it's become the Donald Trump Convention.

He "did it" alright.  He did a $1 1/2 TRILLION dollar giveaway to the top 1% in America and cut Corporate taxes so they could pay their CEOs and Board Members even more $Millions.  He alienated all of our allies, opened our national parks up for mining, wrote EOs that allow coal and other industries to go back to polluting our environment, and there is so much more negative stuff it can't be listed here. By the way, the "Wall" is a big lie.

Tom did an excellent job of describing the alternate reality of the Trump Republican National Convention, as opposed to Republican National Convention.

 

Tom said, "Instead, as he asks voters for a second term, he has turned the Republican National Convention into a fantasy land version of his presidency. In this carefully curated world, staged by federal officials in Washington and Jerusalem, Trump has defeated the coronavirus, saved the economy, built a border wall, established peace in the Middle East, recalled U.S. forces from theaters of war, and even become a champion of immigrants at a time when he is sharply curtailing their access.
