The Name Game

Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with Drumpf? I'm not kidding or doing schtick here, there is something off about this guy. Who does shit like this? Even more bizarre is Drumpf's insistence that the voice on the tape is not him, even though it sounds just like him and reads exactly like him, even though it probably wouldn't hurt his standing with his cult of morons in the least to admit it.

Even more bizarre is the possibility that Drumpf himself leaked the tape, just to get another news cycle, perhaps to distract from his refusal to release his tax returns. Whatever.

One thing that seems clear, though, and it's definitely something that Democrats need to start working:  Drumpf's main point of vulnerability is his need maintain his vainglorious, nonsensical vision of himself as a man of greatness. He's a fucking clown, a needy, whiny, thin-skinned bitch who cannot handle even a little bit of criticism, no matter how true it is. And he cannot stand to be ridiculed, even though everything about him is patently ridiculous.

So uh, you know, Drumpf thinks his dumb fucking nicknames for everyone else are soooo clever: Lyin' Ted, Little Marco, Crooked Hillary, etc., etc. The Dems floated "Dangerous Donald" in response, but fuck that noise. Every chance they get, they should refer to him as "John Miller" or "John Barron", and coyly follow up with, "Oh, sorry, I mean Donald Trump."

Drumpf's marketing technique is mostly repetition, because repetition works, especially on simpletons. So just keep repeating it, all summer long, at the convention, out on the campaign trail. Mock it, point out how funny and silly and ridiculous it is. Drumpf won't be able to stand it. His Greg Stillson moment is not a matter of if, but when, it just takes someone to push and provoke him into it.
