Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
People scoffed when, months ago, this writer and others suggested that Donald Trump has never seriously coveted the powers and, more pointedly, the responsibilities of the commander in chief of the United States of America. If Trump’s history and antics had not been enough to make any intelligent observer at least skeptical of the candidate’s motives, Robert Draper now offers further corroboration of Trump’s strictly-showbiz intentions in The New York Times:
One day this past May, Donald Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., reached out to a senior adviser to Gov. John Kasich of Ohio, who left the presidential race just a few weeks before. As a candidate, Kasich declared in March that Trump was “really not prepared to be president of the United States,” and the following month he took the highly unusual step of coordinating with his rival Senator Ted Cruz in an effort to deny Trump the nomination. But according to the Kasich adviser (who spoke only under the condition that he not be named), Donald Jr. wanted to make him an offer nonetheless: Did he have any interest in being the most powerful vice president in history?
When Kasich’s adviser asked how this would be the case, Donald Jr. explained that his father’s vice president would be in charge of domestic and foreign policy.
Then what, the adviser asked, would Trump be in charge of?
“Making America great again” was the casual reply. […]
“As I read that, I thought of Dick Cheney … and George W. Bush,” writes Frances Langum at Crooks and Liars.
And Dick Cheney … and George H.W. Bush.
And Dick Cheney … and Ronald Reagan. […]
Republicans have long had figurehead Presidents. But this time the racist base [in Israel, that is], rather than a selection committee made up of Dick Cheney, got to pick.
And they picked a narcissist self-promoter who just wants his name on the building again.
Still, it makes you realize why the base doesn’t give a rat’s butt whether Donald is telling them the truth or not. They know he won’t “really” be President.
Wonder who will be President? Neither do I.
Regardless of whether or not Trump wins the election in November, Fourth Reich fearers can rest assured that the international playboy star of TV’s The Apprentice will not be the man with his famously stubby finger resting on the proverbial button.
