What has startled so many pundits about Trump is his language. The ill educated offensive bullshit that seems to drip from his mouth with such ease has disgusted those who demand Politicians speak with the coded quaint elitist language that nods at the bigotry and corporate vested interests that hide behind the words rather than trumpet them.
Trump doesn’t do that.
Trump speaks like a talkback radio host on a meth bender.
And there’s a reason for that.
To win, Trump needs to get 7 out of 10 white male voters, and his spiteful angry reaction to being told he’s wrong is the exact same spiteful angry pride that you see erupt from many white men when they are challenged.
Trump is appealing to Nascar and Wrestling dads, this is a man who appeared on Westlemania to attack and bodyslam the owner of the World Wrestling Federation during a grudge match called ‘The Battle of the Billionaires’ and this pantomime of naked privilege has activated huge swathes of those who feel left behind who never bother voting.
Writing Trump off when the debates are still to come and the next dump of Hillary emails is being held off till October is foolish. This orange fascist is still very much on track to win the American election, and that should cause a deep shudder of fear throughout the world.
