To the casual observer, it may appear that Donald Trump is merely an ego-laden baboon. He hasn’t bothered to hire campaign staff. He spends his time attacking his own party. And spends so many hours producing idiotic, hate-filled tirades that the biggest split among GOP politicians is how to avoid being associated with Trump.
But Trump doesn’t need them. Doesn’t need their fancy data and their … people. He has another means of winning.
Republicans will rely on the sheer force of Donald Trump’s personality to tap into deep-seated voter anger. Democrats are counting on a superior field organization to serve as Hillary Clinton’s firewall.
Hillary may need all those volunteer scum, but Trump will show Republicans the power of his personality. Anger turns to fear. Fear turns to votes. And milk turns to yogurt if you leave it out in warm weather. Donald Trump will make them feel the yogurty power of the orange side.
“His job is to be Mr. Trump,” said Rob Gleason, the chairman of the Pennsylvania Republican Party. “His appeal is very different than a normal politician.” …
Gleason’s sentiments were echoed by GOP chairs across the swing states, from Colorado to Virginia to Michigan. They view Trump as a lightning rod for the anger of economically struggling Americans — particularly the white working class — and, despite his flaws, they can envision him causing a dramatic break from conventional voting patterns that will carry him to victory in November.
Good. Good. Let the anger flow through them.
Now, if only Donald Trump could think of a giant, pointless object to build as a symbol of his hate. Not a Death Star—that’s been done to death—something larger. Something longer. Something like … a massive Doom Wall.
