Donald Trump is rarely given credit for being the prankster he is. His humor, being tongue in cheek, is almost always misconstrued by Democrats and the liberal media. In their heated hurry to jump on anything, his sarcasm goes way over their heads. But. The last laugh is almost always on them.
We are well aware of how Trump delights in toying with the media. He’ll toss them a bone with just enough meat on it to leave them starving for more, then sit back and watch them gnaw at it.
He revels in answering reporter’s questions without a definitive answer. A yes or no question is answered with “we’ll see.” This was Trump’s exact reply when asked if he loses the election will he peacefully pack his stuff and get. More precisely he said, “Well, we’re going to have to see what happens.” Let the reporters figure out what that means. It’ll be side-splitting.
Here’s how mainstream media perceived the statement. “Fascism Takes Over America in Trump’s Latest Unconstitutional Power Grab.” And this is exactly how the readers and viewers of mainstream media are accepting it. They’re braced for battle.
The President followed up with a serious statement though it still didn’t answer the question. “I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots, and the ballots are a disaster. We want to have — get rid of the ballots, you’ll have a very peaceful, there won’t be a transfer, frankly. There’ll be a continuation.”
Trump threw in another zinger by adding, “The ballots are out of control. You know it. And you know who knows it better than anybody else? The Democrats know better than anybody else.”
“We do want a very friendly transition,” Trump said, again with no definitive answer.
“But we don’t want to be cheated and be stupid and say, ‘Oh let’s trans– we’ll go and we’ll do a transition,’ and we know that there were thousands and thousands of ballots that made the difference through cheating. We’re not going to stand for it.”
It would have been very easy for Trump to simply commit to peacefully moving out of the White House provided the election is won fair and square. But that would have been the end of it and what fun is that?
Mainstream media has created the illusion of a Trump-backed military force seizing control of America. Of black-clothed agents tossing Biden supporters into unmarked vans as they torch their homes.
The bigger problem is how some liberals are swallowing the bait. They’re stocking up on ammo and buying enough baked beans to last them a year. Democrats. What are ya gonna do?
Here’s the actual headline from the Washington Post. “Trump won’t commit to a ‘peaceful transfer of power’ if he loses.” Do you see the irony? Just as Trump left reporters to figure out what he meant, mainstream media left it up to their viewers to decipher. Meanwhile, Donald Trump is shaking the White House walls laughing.
Tossing gas on the flames, of course, Nancy Pelosi had to strike her own match. “You are not in North Korea, you are not in Turkey, you are not in Russia, Mr. President … you are not in Saudi Arabia. You are in the United States of America. It is a democracy.“ To this, we say, “Duh.”
Still fuming over the 2016 election, Hillary chimed in on Twitter. “Trump’s refusal to commit to the peaceful transfer of power is the behavior of a desperate would-be dictator who’d cling to office even if it meant destroying our democracy.”
“It’s pathetic. But because he is the president, we should take his threat seriously.”
You do see what’s happened here, don’t you? The Democrats, along with their media co-hearts, think that by painting a mad-man in the White House type picture of Trump, they’ll scare enough on-the-fence voters into pulling the lever for Biden.
They may even think they can scare some Republicans into switching their allegiance. But we know better. The Dems need to lighten up and get a sense of humor. Of course, Trump is hoping they won’t. He’s having way too much fun at their expense.
