TrumpThink – Create alternative facts to real facts, question the real facts, make the alternative facts plausible and seem credible, even opposing facts.
Obama’s approval ratings rose through out the campaign and Trump still won. Over 200 Counties Obama won twice voted for Trump.
All press is good press, even bad press is good
Ratings are votes
Dominate the 24 hour media cycle
Say and do the most outrageous things possible:
“A Few Oldies but Goodies”
- Pick a fight with the Pope
- Insult everyone and every institution, he even insulted his own followers “He loves the uneducated”
- Talk About Torture and claim that is works (Alternative Fact)
- Place the media in a “Caged Pen” at the back of your audiences and point to the pen and call them all dirty liars and have your audience scream and point at the media.
- Never apologize for anything, never back down, Trump stands for all the “Forgotten People” that the rest of us forgot. He is the “Great White Hope.”
- Admires Putin and call for the Russians to “Hack Hillary Clinton’s emails” Oh Gee, they did hack her emails and gave them to Wikileaks.
- Syrian refugees were pouring into the country not properly vetted (Alternative Fact)
- The list goes on and on, there were so many outrageous things in the campaign.
Trump’s leadership style is to move on, create the next outrageous story. He just goes on and on. It feels like an avalanche of just one crazy alternative fact after another until he creates his own alternative reality which I call “Trump World”. It feels like a parallel universe. I just spent the last week trying to explain to a former student from Yemen who is scared out of his mind of being deported to his war torn country, how everything will be alright. We let this happen, we have to fix it. Spread the truth.
