80. Every bit of his campaign's media strategy is a calculated exercise in double thinking propaganda.

Swinish republicans like Ailes and Rove are in the background orchestrating his moves. Sure, he says stupid things off the cuff, all the time, but he went to Mexico to inoculate himself against charges that he's threatening to go to war with our southern neighbors, to play to the concerned independents who don't hate all Hispanics. Then he appears with Arpaio and Brewer in AZ to beat his chest and storm like Hitler about how all Hispanics are evil illegal alien killers. He was so quiet and respectful and presidential on the stage with Prez Nieto, then flash forward to the other side of the border, where he gives his cheering xenophobic base the red meat they desire.

Completely scripted.

I remember an interview where Michael Moore talked to a Dem congressman Jim McDermott, who was also a psychologist, about the bush Admin's Homeland Security pronounciations. They would make threatening announcements about heighthened alerts and new terror threats, and between the 'threats' would sprinkle in other official presidential pronouncements like 'Americans should live their lives, travel and visit other parts of America, go to Disneyland'. McDermott described that process as akin to telling a dog you're training two conflicting orders one after the other, which just confuses the dog.

That's what the repugnant gop brains behind trump are doing right now.
