Trump is playing 3-D Chess against the totally unarmed “resistance.”
In this “War of Words,” the left accuses Trump of anything (e.g. being a racist, being unethical, being a puppet of a foreign government, being a criminal, being mentally unbalanced, being insane, wanting a nuclear war - shall I go on?), only to have the “Master Persuader/Hypnotist” respond with a tweet that “forces” the reader to associate Trump with the antithesis of what the left has accused about him. This is almost like a Roadrunner Cartoon, where "Wile E. Coyote, Genius," devises a (Rube Goldberg) trap for the Roadrunner, only to have it backfire and entrap him.
So in this instance, when a writer (with a reputation of “bending the facts to suit his own narrative) gets to a former Trump insider, to write a tell-all, to make Trump look bad, Trump is ready with his own literary “missiles,” to destroy the insider and the writer and persuade the wavering, making himself look better (in this case, associating his name with the term VERY STABLE GENIUS).
This is what PERSUASION looks like. The “True Believers” will never be convinced that Trump is anything other than a RICH, RACIST, BIGOT, UNDESERVING CON MAN, WHO BOUGHT THE PRESIDENCY. But the unconvinced, who voted against Hillary, are being convinced each and every day, that they made the correct decision. And those who were unconvinced and did not vote are moving to Trump’s side.
Scott Adams finds Stephen King CAUGHT in Trump’s ‘genius’ trapIt’s kind of amazing how many of those urging Twitter to ban President Trump from tweeting are the same ones who feel obligated to reply to each and every one of his tweets. They could just unfollow, but we suppose they consider it monitoring the enemy’s movements or something.On Saturday morning, Trump tweeted that his career accomplishments might qualify him as a genius, and of course that tweet managed to preoccupy the media/Democrats and celebrities all day long. Here’s Rep. Ted Lieu:Human experience tells us that people who are geniuses don't go around saying they are geniuses. Same also applies to people who are very stable.— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu)
By the way, @realDonaldTrump also ran for President in 2000. Another day, another series of bizarre tweets & lies from #stablegenius https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/949619270631256064 …Writer Stephen King didn’t tag Trump in his tweet saying essentially the same thing as Lieu, but the inspiration is obvious.“Dilbert” creator Scott Adams thinks he caught King in one of Trump’s many Twitter traps.Who made every one of his critics pair his name with the word “genius” for the next month? #snapgoesthetrap https://twitter.com/stephenking/status/949689460484173824 …— Scott Adams (@ScottAdamsSays) · Pleasanton, CAAdams certainly isn’t wrong — it’s all people can talk about, and this is after the mainstream media devoted most of the week to suggesting Trump was mentally unfit to serve after his “nuclear button” tweet.It’s really is a trap: he tweets, and they’re helpless to ignore it.Exactly. This is the most entertaining thing ever. https://twitter.com/ScottAdamsSays/status/949700679487995904 …— J.E. Dyer (@OptimisticCon)Maybe he's just honestly assessing himself https://twitter.com/stephenking/status/949689460484173824 …— Kurt Schlichter (@KurtSchlichter)Yes. It's very clever indeed, and @StephenKing was the first dumb carp to rise to the bait. Thanks, Scott.— Bill Bradbrooke (@billbradbrooke)The master of the one liner ( @ScottAdamsSays ) crushes the long form master ( @StephenKing )... (Hmmm, I sense a trend.)— Tom Royce (@TomRoyce)One of the most fascinating aspects of persuasion is how insanely persuasive people can’t see Trump using it at weapons-grade levels. @ScottAdamsSays https://twitter.com/ScottAdamsSays/status/949700679487995904 …— John G (@John_Gee83)The subconscious does not process negation.— Dr. Manhattan (@UncleDario1)
We give power to anything we think about regardless of the value we consciously assign it. https://twitter.com/ScottAdamsSays/status/949700679487995904 …Yep … all we’ll be seeing all day, even from the haters, are the words “Trump” and “genius.”I'd say psyop successful. pic.twitter.com/ksiuIV6Glq— Chrissy (@Chrissy4963)That certainly managed to change the headlines from, “Democrats question if Trump mentally fit to serve.”Do a Twitter search for the word "genius" being used yesterday.— Barry Cunningham (@barrycunningham)
The do the same search for today.
Then you might get it. @ScottAdamsSays is right!LMAO! https://twitter.com/ScottAdamsSays/status/949700679487995904 …
