To any astute observer, Trumpism was no surprise, but to Republicans and apparently to many political pundits, they were blindsided by Trumpism. C’mon, anyone paying attention knew Conservatism beget Birtherism and Birtherism beget Trumpism. Holy smokes, Conservatives/Republicans had no qualms embracing Birtherism, then they initiated Gerrymandering, Citizens United, and Voter Suppression. Truth be told, those tactics are as bad, if not worst than Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric. But because of rating$ and profit$, Republican’s callous disregard for the rights and feelings of others, was minimized by our corporate media apparatus. While Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric was vilified by our corporate media apparatus and by many Republicans. I’ll ask you, who’s zooming who?
Seriously, the Good Ole Boys were betrayed by Donald Trump back in 2011, when he [Trump] seized the birther movement. Here’s the best part, they [Good Ole Boys] cheered Trump on, unbeknownst that they were being betrayed. If you think that was hilarious, today our corporate media apparatus wants us to believe that Trump’s supporters are fragments of our imagination. Trust me, Trump’s supporters are the same folks who were manipulated by our corporate media apparatus for decades, until Trump seized them in 2011. Nowadays, Trump is the face of the Republican Party and the Good Ole Boys are green with envy.
