Donald Trump is the stable genius he claims to be. After all, here is a guy whose real estate failures and business bankruptcies exceed those of all the other moguls of history, whose self-help get rich school was closed for fraud, and whose seed capital came not from the toil of his labors but from his sugar daddy, yet his future is bright. His genius lies in what he has created and in the fortune it portends.
Long ago, Donald came to understand that passive income beats the hell out of working; that large grosses can emanate from the licensing of a brand. Trump One America Network is going to make Fox News look like the BBC.
The epiphany came to our recent leader about two years in. The tweets that pissed off so many brought even more to the fold. He came to understand that his supplicants may not know how to tweet, but they all had TV’s and the networks were happy to report on his chirping. The media handed him a gazillion dollars in free advertising. “Thank you God of Twitter”, he prayed.
Donald Trump came to understand that this Presidency thing was pretty damn powerful. He had assumed it was big, but then came to understand it as capital B big. Immortality Big. Historical infamy Big.
He knows for certain that Seventy- plus million Americans are made to feel good about themselves by the current version of his brand. It is not necessarily the minimally enlightened, who are perhaps more prone to believe anything he says because he is the leader of the free world. There is also a large contingent of upper-crust credentialed citizens whose President that did not make them feel guilty for their success. And if their success was smoke and mirrors, he was even more suited to be their role model.
He doesn’t have to believe what he says. He only has to make them believe he believes. Or, perhaps he believes what he says, which makes the sales pitch that much easier. Either way, he knows he has now created a vast what- we- would -call ‘audience’ and he would call ‘marketplace’. And it is his; all his.
