The Simple Rhythm Of Donald Trump’s Life

Tell the simpleminded what they want to hear. My university will make you rich. I’m a man for the little guy.

Give the rich and powerful what they want. Yes our beautiful healthcare program will give you guys at the top of the economic ladder a huge tax break.

Never ever tell the truth about anything or admit failure or wrongdoing. My crowds are always the biggest. I am worth many billion. I will soon release the tapes.

Claim credit for anything the public thinks is good. I have already saved many jobs at Ford.

Always be on the lookout for someone else to blame when things go bad. It is all Obama’s fault — sad.

Never allow folks to hang around who don’t kiss one’s ass or can no longer be of any special benefit to one’s life. Yes, Sean, you might want to be packing your bags.

Be prepared to threaten to sue, and then sue all day, every day. I have lots and lots of very expensive lawyers, you know.

It is a simple life style that doesn’t require loads of knowledge or great insight but it does create much collateral damage — poor America, poor world.
