The Attraction Of Trump

Donald Trump is a symbol and that symbol is of America’s Middle Finger extended. Donald Trump is Middle America’s embodied and walking Middle Finger as gloriously extended to the cultural Elites, the Cultural Marxists, and the political-media establishment. As a walking embodiment of “the Bird” there is nothing that Trump can do, except to cease with his “eff you” attitude to the political-media establishment, that will cause his support to wither away. Trump support is not so much pro Trump as much as it is, “the political class and the media overlords, can go eff themselves.” The only way that Trump can lose support from Middle America is to quit serving as their vehicle for flipping off the Literati elites and their chaterati pundit mouthpieces.

Whenever Trump mentions something like “Hillary was schlonged,” or that “Jeb lacks energy,” or that  “Fiorina is ugly,” or that “Meagan Kelly was bleeding from her ‘where-ever,'” or that “Rand Paul is short,” or that “it is a waste of time to be interviewed by Anderson Cooper,” or “Jonah Goldberg is as dumb as a rock,” or that “Lindsey Graham is a stiff who couldn’t get a job in the private sector,” etc, Trump is merely being the mouthpiece for middle, angry, and radical Americans who absolutely loathe the political-media establishment and would love to be able to themselves tell that political media establishment that they can go *&^# themselves. Trump is a conduit for a deep reservoir of anger in the American middle. And mind you, I offer this analysis as someone who does not support Trump.

Furthermore, every time the political-media complex hurls insults at Trump or tries to trip Trump up or tries to reason with Trump from their Worldview it only serves to increase the intense support for Trump once Trump shuts down that resistance.

The American middle sees themselves as an underdog and Trump is their chosen representative. As such there is a twofold connected-ness with Trump. First there is the connection inasmuch as Trump is sending their message and second there is the connection inasmuch as Americans always love and root for the underdog.

The only way Trump will be eliminated is if it can be clearly demonstrated that he is a charlatan to middle America’s interests or if he has an unfortunate “accident.”
