Trump Logic

Trump’s Logic of “The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend”

Wiki: The enemy of my enemy is my friend is an ancient proverb which suggests that two opposing parties can or should work together against a common enemy. The earliest known expression of this concept is found in a Sanskrit treatise, the Arthashastra, which dates to around the 4th century BC.

The Cult of Trump has taken this proverb to heart. Here is their logic. Hillary Clinton is an enemy of Trump. Hillary is an enemy of Putin. Trump is my friend; therefore, Putin is my friend.

This alternate reality fueled by alternate facts makes Putin the friend and the free and open press “the enemy of the people.” Fear and hate drives foolish people to illogical conclusions. Trump actually has no friends but he is in denial about that. And so is his Cult.

Without any doubt, Russia disrupted the last election under orders from Putin. The only question remaining is: “to what extent was the Trump election team involved?”

Hillary does not matter anymore. She lost by her own errors. She was not the logical choice in either the primary or the general election. Between bad and worse, worse won. (Elizabeth Warren should have been the candidate)

Trump and Putin have Hillary in common as a perceived enemy. Come on, guys!

Asked whether he would consider extraditing the 12 Russian intelligence officers accused of hacking the DNC during the 2016 presidential election, Putin fell back on whataboutism and accused U.S. intelligence officials of helping Browder funnel $400 million into Hillary Clinton’s campaign. “We have a solid reason to believe that some [U.S.] intelligence officers accompanied and guided these transactions,” Putin said.

And, in this alternate reality, using seriously flawed logic, that is enough for the Cult of Trump. What could possibly top that?

A free and open press is the enemy of enslaved and closed minds (e.g. like those of Trump and his ilk)

Lie 2K!
