Why Trump’s con works
It works because the people he is conning want to believe what he says. He actually knows it’s a con, he’s not stupid, he’s a con man, and cons work. Now he is saying that the election was stolen from him with illegal votes.
The Conspiracy may generate some rallies. I have no idea how successful the Illegal Votes Conspiracy will be. 70,000,000 voted for a con man who has the nerve to tell them that he was cheated, and they can see that he wasn’t, and choose to believe otherwise. They watched the election conducted by states, many of them run by Republicans.
The Trump madness is the hysteria he creates and the chaos he perpetuates, his need to live in an alternate reality is what makes his delusive personality so successful, it has no attachment to actualities.
Trump’s con works because he knows that his people want to believe his alternate reality of white grievance. Trump has nothing to feel aggrieved about, the corona virus casualties and dead do. Trump’s people shouldn’t have believed his con about the pandemic hoax, it’s caused untold deaths, the hoax conspiracy, here, there, and everywhere.
But for the pandemic, Trump’s con would have prevailed. That’s why he’s so mad, he knows that. Fate beat him, and an old political operative, Joe Biden, from Scranton, Pennsylvania.
