According to the demons who were assigned to write at the NYT editorial board, the “real meaning” of Trump’s presidency is captured in a quote they know he never made, reflecting his status as a “race warrior” who foments “racial hatred” for daring to send out tweets which PC doctrine demands that we all gasp at regardless of accuracy. You don’t need to read the article, because my summary of their summary should tell you about how many neurons were actually required to fire to get this piece written. One per letter, perhaps.
I suppose the assumption is that since Trump told these four congresswomen to leave the US until they can make their ideas work in the failed socialist dictatorships from which they come, he’s in effect telling them to leave forever, because everyone knows that their ideas will never work as intended. I’m just kidding, of course. They don’t really think that. But they know *he* thinks that.
No one can say that Trump’s tweets were necessarily motivated by racism. Given his style, by now well-established by many tweets of a similar nature, these tweets can only be rationally explained as an effort to be *rhetorically compelling*. It just so happens that he could use this particular rhetorical device against only these minority congresswomen. Of course, one could say that it was racially insensitive to send out tweets like those, but Trump’s smart enough to know that in these PC times pushing buttons is one of the only tools we have to fight back.
The truth, of course, is that Trump’s tweets didn’t go nearly far enough, but we can’t say that’s his fault. As president of Communist USA, there are many truths that even he can’t speak. Let’s just say that if by some tragic miracle *I* were elected president, I don’t think I could stop myself from sending out tweets like these:
“The fed up citizens in this country should grab their guns, show up on every college campus throughout this country, and begin firing in the direction of the professors of America until they’re waving their gay rainbow flags and consent to trade places with all the white South Africans whose plight they’ve been ignoring all this time. Then, once they’ve been shipped to their new homeland, they can begin demolishing all those costly and ineffective walls and learn to live in peace with the starving but smiling Africans. Or not. SAD!”
They wouldn’t really be able to accuse me of anything of which they haven’t already accused Trump. They would just get louder, crazier and more sweaty because they’d know I was being serious.
