Winter is Trumping

I finally put this up so people will stop telling me about it. But it is pretty incredible.

YOu know, scintillating rapes aside, GoT really is a tale of failed immigration policy. Never thought of it that way before either. Maybe the ice zombies are just kabob owners waiting to happen?

Trump's recent retelling of the General Pershing "bullets dipped in pigs blood" legend has given me an idea he could have a bit of fun with at his next rally.

Islamic fighters gain tremendous courage from believing that if they are killed in battle they become instant martyrs, go straight to heaven and receive 72 virgins. However, they also believe that if they suffer the dishonour of being killed by a woman, rather than poon paradise, they are instead condemned to everlasting punishment in the fires of hell.

Trump: "Islamic fighters truly believe that if they are killed by a woman, they go to hell! Well, when I'm President I'm going to make sure every single US drone strike in Syria is controlled by an American Service Woman. I will order the Airforce to drop leaflets informing Islamic State fighters of this fact, and assure them that a Trump administration will see to it, that every one of these cutthroat maniacs are sent straight to HELL, where they belong! "

I like this idea because it reinforces his tough stance on terrorism while also throwing a bone to the female vote. (Of course, in reality, he'll have to do nothing but the leafleting part.)

Anyone know how we can pass it on to him?

If there is one good thing his bigotry has done, it is mobilizing minorities. E.g. there is so much get-out-to-vote campaigns going on in Latino communities now, Black peeps campaigning for Sanders or Clinton, etc.

Hopefully, more of those who used to say they won't vote at all or won't vote if their fave doesn't win primaries now see how stupid that can be because it means they're voting for this buffoon by default.

It doesn't quite make use of the GoT narrative, only uses some scenes as backdrop for a few laughs. The scene where he rejects Khaleesi at the Gates is pretty good though, because in the movie she attempts to take the city by force afterwards - good reminder of the muslim "immigrants" as invaders.

My first thought was neither pro-Trump nor anti-Trump, just pro-entertainment.

On second viewing, I notice that they have Trump saying "this country needs a dealmaker" immediately followed by "no deals, not with anybody, we don't make deals". This might be intended to make Trump look bad by exposing his inconsistency. But it really doesn't come off as strongly pro- or anti-Trump even with that.

Hopefully, more of those who used to say they won't vote at all or won't vote if their fave doesn't win primaries now see how stupid that can be because it means they're voting for this buffoon by default.

Voting for a buffoon by default describes how blacks generally vote for a candidate with "D" following his name. You can usually count on them voting 90% or higher for the democrat.

Even if Trump succeeds, his share of the white vote will probably be around 60 percent. Whites for some reason actually make choices at election times. Often their choice is horribly wrong, but they do make them. Contrast that to the minority vote which besides blacks at 90%, would probably include hispanics at 70% or higher for the democrats.

If minorities had the same respect for the voting process as whites and made their up their own minds and did not vote as a block, the democrats would be obliterated. If blacks and hispanics voted 60% for the democrats as whites do the GOP, the democrats would be instantly in the wilderness.

No, it is not the Trump people who vote by default. It is your NAMS.

oh come ON, Nate. they juxtaposed Trump proclaiming himself a dealmaker and immediately jump cut to Trump saying "No deals".

that's not an accident. it was intentional and done for comedic effect.

do i think this means the vid maker is anti-Trump? no. but it's certainly not somebody who believes or intends to portray the Donald as being all sweetness and light and consistency.

I'm not even sure why Trump does these debates at this point. He already has the lead so he has more to lose, everyone is stacked against him including the audience and RNC, and after 30+ debates I don't think we're going to learn anything more about these candidates. Considering he has a lot less debate experience than his peers, what does he get from this?

It doesn't seem like something somebody does from a position of strength.

Cruz and Rubio came in with a bunch of memorized dates of contradictions, exact money amounts donated to democrats, rather than just calling him a liar/flip-flopper

And he has spent much of his time playing defense, taking the shelling and not getting a whole lot of his own shots off.

Its broken down into chaos a lot, which I think distracts from the whole event. I can't even remember what they talked about an hour ago, but I am left with the impression that Trump wasn't on top of it.

I thought Cruz was doing the best early on, but he seems to have missed a few steps, and now I can't really say it was a good night for any particular candidate. Maybe Kasich, but he is irrelevant.

you need to get better at reading subtext.

practically every editing decision in that video, beginning with the "i'm droppin a turd, ma" expression that Trump is sporting on the title screen is designed to make Trump out to be a clown. heck, that dragonborn bimbo ( whatever her name is ) is probably the primary heroine of GoT, and Trump is denying her sanctuary. making immigrants what?

he refuses to follow orders and the scene implication is that he's shortly to get shortened by about a head.

he says, "I don't think they like me very much".

if it were an out and out smear job on him, yes, they'd have shown him getting killed three dozen different ways. but this video was certainly designed for comedic effect at Trump's expense.

Rubio was determined to talk over Trump so he could not be heard.

Blogger WhiskeyPreacher February 26, 2016 1:18 AM  

Id guess Trump is starting to change his style. Two things.

1. He no longer the spunky underdog fighting the man. Hes the presumed king. Kings dont brawl like rebels do. Hes letting Cruz and Rubio act like the presumed outsiders taking shots at the big man. The overarching narrative is that THEY'RE the desperate losers slinging whatever they have-mostly old hat attacks by now.

2. Rubio and Cruz are still running in the primary. Trumps running in the general. The His problem was getting his base fired up. They are. Time to start expanding his message....and changing his approach. I expect to see a distinct change in his rhetorical style. Hes already scaled back on direct insults because he knows that hes past that point. The news cycle has chewed them up and spit them out. Cruz and Rubio are finding their balls at precisely the wrong time. Instead of looking like hitters, they look like they're adopting HIS STYLE (overall message 1) to attack the guy who beat them. (Overall message 2)

And the things theyre hitting him with are not things that will hurt in the general. "Donate to democrats" is supposed to piss off texas hillbillies, but to middle americs housewives it sounds like "bipartisan."

It had to happen, it had to happen soon, and it did. Trump is changing stages in the negotiation-from agressive underdog to equal.

Look at his entire campaign:

First-edgy radical statements that put him on the map. That got played out and he switched too:
Serious candidate pushing hard to fight out of the pack. That got played out and he moved to:
Republican frontrunner issuing policy statements and position papers. That played out and he moved to:
Presumed republican candidate winning caucuses and now thats played out. Super Tuesday is the end of the road and everyone knows it. So how do you get in front of the news?

You move to the next step: national campaign.

What does he need for the general?

He needs a lower dislike rating. He needs to pull in some new votes, and he needs to look like a serious leader. Taking some hits makes him more relatable, refusing to engage with their memorized points and dragging them into a quagmire of cross argument sucks all the wind out of their sails.

They want big headlines of snappy shots. Trumps denying them that. In the primary, a general sense of disorder benefits him the most. In tbe general, a little bit of being humbled make him relatable, makes him more human, an being attacked by hardcore GOP guys like cruz and rubio makes him more acceptable.

OpenID basementhomebrewer February 26, 2016 6:35 AM  

@63 That is some nice spin but that is not what happened. He came out hitting just as hard as he always had. He got out classed when the other candidates actually came prepared to talk about specifics in their attacks on him. He tried to hit back just as hard for a while but it was clear the attacks took their toll about an hour in. His main problem is he is still using the same retorts he has been for the last 3 debates. He recovered a little bit after ~45 minutes of hiding in his shell in the middle of the debate. I think he realized he got bloodied and was just trying to run the clock out. He then realized there was a lot of time on the clock and he needed to get back in the game in order to not look weak.

It wasn't a good debate for him and it was clear that it wasn't a planned part of his strategy. If it had been he would have come out humble from the start rather than aggressively tangle with the other candidates for the first hour.

"Maybe it's because I don't watch that show, but I can't tell if this was supposed to be pro-Trump or anti-Trump."

Not everything has to be pro or anti. Hew Parkinson (the creator of hte video) is an AUSTRALIAN political satirist and he has no dog in the fight. He just calls it as he sees it. And he's renowned in Australia for doing these kinds of mashups, mostly around hte Australian political scene. Think of him as a political cartoonist who just uses a different medium.
