You know who approves of that sweet, sweet move Nancy made? Trump. She said fook off and crushed the post coverage game in one meme worthy move! Game does recognize game after all. Lol
All politics aside, she accomplished her goal. She pulled a Trump, sucked all the oxygen out of his next day coverage. The media sphere is lit the fuck up with the memtastic stunt. ”Trump gave a speech, yada yada, but did you see Nancy literally rip him a new one?”
Love it or hate it, you sure as hell noticed it.
You can start with courtesy in a fight, but in a knife fight, and this is a knife fight, eventually you gots to use a knife if you’re looking to live, let alone win. Blaming Nancy for addressing Trump’s base in the chosen language like telling her to fight barehanded against a blade. That’s a thing a lot of folk upset with Nancy’s dope rip move are missing, she wasn’t talking to them, this was a direct shot at his base and added bonus, the short attention spanners who didn’t even watch.
Trump and his peoples are freaking brilliant, they correctly assessed that WWE show tactics would motivate a strong base who felt ignored…and resented the shit out of it. They ignore all reason discourse as a matter of practice. This includes an incredible alliance of groups that intersect over resentment. It’s more important than racism, it’s more important than stopping abortion, it’s more important than fulfilling Steven Miller Stormfronty based immigration policy.
Trumpistas exist who object to all those things, but overlook any of the policies they individually don’t like. To achieve this state, it’s all about keeping the majority being fed up, mad as hell, agitated and pissed enough to play unfair, that’s who Nancy was flipping off in a language they can hear.
They ain’t hearing logic or truth, are they? I mean, does anybody think that works by now? Alternative truths sounded funny when jelly Kelly Anne said it 1st, but it turns out to be really effective in these circumstances.
So what to do when your getting your ass kicked 8th grade style? It’s not like Democrats decorated the arena in Middle School luncheon chic, did they? They didn’t start with the nicknames, the ridiculous racist dog whistle birther campaign, nope, that’s all Trumps to own.
The attempt to be insulting by calling Michelle a man and the nicknames for the Obamas, nope, that is the arena that Trump built, one Twitter at a time. One Tucker propaganda show at a time, one Coulter hate fest at time, one Hannity rant at a time. And they are always angry, because keeping the base angry is job one. Angry people suspend the rules when they are an angry mob.
Trump’s success dies when his supporters calm down, because that’s when the ones who believe in civility and logic start looking for solutions, instead of the current search for domination and revenge. Giving up or getting beat just gets them more riled up when they’re fired up, it doesn’t make a pissed off mob calm down. Nancy was going to get roasted no matter what she did, so I’m calling this a win.
