To be honest, I used to dread checking Twitter to see the latest idiotic drivel Donald Trump had sent out. However, now that he’s becoming more and more of a joke each and every day, I’ve actually found myself looking forward to his frequent Twitter temper tantrums. While I still despise the fact that he’s in office, he’s managed to exceed my expectations in how quickly he’s proven all of those who voted against him were right for doing so.
If this keeps up (which I don’t see any reason why it won’t), we could be looking at Trump’s approval numbers in the low 30’s in just a few weeks. Approval numbers that would make him so politically toxic, we’ll start seeing more and more members of his own party wanting nothing to do with him out of fear that aligning with him could cost them their job when the 2018 midterms roll around.
It’s why I’ve said Trump is even worse than I expected — but that’s a good thing.
Case in point, a tweet he sent out Tuesday night, once again showcasing that he’s nothing more than an incompetent, conspiracy-driven idiot:
The so-called angry crowds in home districts of some Republicans are actually, in numerous cases, planned out by liberal activists. Sad!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 21, 2017
It’s worded differently, but this is more of the same conspiracy he’s claimed that the people who’ve been protesting him all over the country (and I guess the world, for that matter) are mostly “paid actors” and not legitimate protesters.
But the true stupidity of this tweet isn’t that he’s pushing the same ridiculous conspiracy that he’s brought up numerous times before, it’s that he doesn’t seem to understand how protests actually work.
Fun fact: Most large, progressive protests held during specific events are “planned out by activists.”
But here’s another fun fact: Most large, conservative protests held during specific events are planned out by activists.
When 60,000 – 70,000 people marched on Washington D.C. on September 12, 2009 in what was called the “Taxpayer March on Washington,” do Trump and his supporters think that was a random, spontaneous event? No, it wasn’t. It was a planned protest organized by FreedomWorks, a huge conservative activist group that was led by former House Majority Leader Dick Armey.
So, yes, many of these protests and demonstrations are “planned out by liberal activists” — that’s the whole point. That’s like me complaining that Trump’s ego-stroking rallies are “planned by pro-Trump activists.”
This is not anything new, controversial, or even difficult to understand. The overwhelming majority of protests are planned events organized by activists. That fact doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out, especially considering there are local ordinances and often permits required before large groups can assemble for a rally or demonstration.
That being said, there’s a huge difference between planned demonstrations and “paid actors.” Though it wouldn’t surprise me for Trump to say that most of the people who showed up to these town hall meetings were “paid” to be there. After all, this is Trump, the man who can get away with saying anything because his supporters are naive enough to believe anything he says.
This is another example of how simple-minded, childish, and insecure Donald Trump is. Not only is he in complete denial about how hated he is, but apparently he’s too stupid to even understand what a protest actually is.
