Trump On His ‘TruthFul Hyperbole’ Tactic – Telling People Fantasies They Want To Hear

Megyn Kelly talked about how the Donald said he would tell people fantasies they want to hear.

Here it is from his own mouth:

Pretty crazy if you ask me.

UPDATE:

Here’s Megyn asking him about it at the debate:

Hey Trump If You Renounce White Supremacists You Should Probably Delete This Tweet!

    Trump is a professional con man. He has no real skills and is of average intelligence. In fact, his intellectual incuriousness and laziness continue to actually, make him look a bit dumb. Donald is very uninformed on topics he should be at least minimally versed in, as a Presidential candidate.

    He continually says things that are factually inaccurate, sometimes knowing, sometimes without knowing…..but pathological liars do not care about facts, so it doesnt cross his mind that he may be misleading people.

    As a lifelong huckster, his job has been to get wealthy off the weakness, and failings of others. Whether its making money from a deal by withholding information, bullying someone, or using the govt stick…..or whether its selling garbage products whose profit margin comes from the mere branding of his last name.

    What has Trump ever done for anyone that didnt include a kickback or benefit for him, in the end?

    Nothing.

    Dont get me wrong. Generally, making money with no motive to help anyone else is perfectly fine……unless you are using it as the resume filler on your run for President.

    His worshippers claim he would “get things done” and “says it like it is”. Both are marginally true but in ways that are so obfuscated and opaque by his having taken every possible side of all arguments and sticking his tiny hands in every imaginable income scheme, data and perspective become worthless.

    Truthfully, most of the things Trump has gotten “done”….are just that….doooooone. KAPUT! You know, like…..”the dishes are dooooooooone, man”*

    Trump steaks? Trump airlines? Trump vodka? Trump university? Trump mortgage? Trump magazine? Trump casino? Trump the game? Trump network?

    All dead. All failures. All Donald’s handiwork and business instincts.

    In fact, the only thing Donald built that hasnt totally failed, been sold off, or bankrupt…. is his name.

    Most of the buildings in the world with Donnie’s name on them have no actual connection to the man. He sells his name like a Kardashian, and like Kanye’s famous spouse, owes whatever millions he now has, to a public image that is built on the superficial……on media attention.

    Considering the empire Kim has built for herself…. with much less than Donnie’s dad handed him, maybe Kim should be running for President. Hey, her business success rate is far higher than Donald’s, and as far as i know, she hasnt bilked billions from investors and “used” the bankruptcy system to protect her own wealth while others lost everything. She never used junk bonds to finance a crater leaving, endeavor, either…..so she’s got that going for her….which is….nice.

    Yes, Donald is so bad, i can make a case that Kim Kardashian is more qualified to be President.

    As for why some people want to hand the reigns of power to a mental pipsqueak….why does England still have a monarchy? Donald Trump might as well be a royal ruler. An empty suit given a national leadership position based on nothing but inherited money and an inherited name.

    So yeah, Donald sells people fantasies. He has finally figured out, at the age of 70, that he doesnt have the skills to sell anything tangible. It just so happens, running for President as a progressive populist is exactly like selling your name. Nothing backed by nothing, built on a mountain of PR.

    It doesnt matter what that name has ACTUALLY meant to investors, wives, businesses, or products…..what matters is whether or not you can tell the right set of lies to separate people from their money….or in this case….their vote.

    Its sad and exactly what happens when the citizens become uneducated, uninformed, emotionally driven, and addicted to pop culture…..in other words….perpetually 13 years old.

    You dont want to be like your parents, you want to be like the super cool guy at school because he tells rad stories, has a cool car, and a girlfriend.

    Later you will realize he was a douche…..

    He is a douche, America.

    Dont buy the lie.

    You dumb shit SOOPER-DOOPER asshole. Don’t worry dick-breath Republicans and phony conservatives like you, Erick Erickson and George Will are working hard to give Hillary the White House. Making her Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. military and appointing up to three (that’s 3 for dumasses like you) Supreme Court justices.
    Instead of illustrating the multitude of nefarious deeds and actions and relationships of Hillary assholes like SOOPER continue with their limp-wrist attacks on Trump. Disgraceful. Go back to fucking Mexico dick-weed and STFU with your nonsense.

  • cryandhowl

    And you’re a certified asshole. Pull your head out of Hillary’s ass and catch your breath.

    You want to make this about SCOTUS appointments then what about considering who Dump would appoint? Of course he’s said he’d appoint “conservatives” but he’s also said he was for nationalized healthcare (last Dec) only to later recant, he wanted a wall on the border then later said it wasn’t necessary, was for stopping mooslim from getting visas only to later take that back, you get the picture? Not that we want Hildebeest to be president but both our choices are awful, two sides of the same coin! Both are self serving, one a con man, the other a corrupt woman – both are just dangerous to the future of America only in different ways.
