Sean Spicer lets us in on the game.
…everyone wants to talk about the tweets he sent. But I would actually focus on the action he’s getting. Donald Trump is not president yet and he’s getting action, successes and wins, both abroad and here at home.
President Donald will be a criminal and a toad. A loss leader and a stinkbomb and a savage clown. Nothing at all that he’d like to do will go right. He’ll be wrestling the stupid square pegs with his sweaty palms, mashing their loser faces in the lousy round holes.
But his people will come to the rescue. They will all say how remarkable he is.
Everything he does right now, he gets — he speaks for the head of Sprint, gets 5,000 jobs moved from abroad. And everyone starts to mock him. Oh, those jobs were already announced. They weren’t. The sales jobs have been a previous announce. These jobs were coming from abroad to America…
The jobs were only part of a previous investment by SoftBank. Their executives figured that stroking Donald would get the FTC to approve their T-Mobile merger. They’re smart.
…instead of trying to mock him or undermine him, it’s time that people started to give him credit for actually getting things done.
These are phone calls. He answered the phone when SoftBank called, they told him what they were doing. He answered the phone when his running mate called, Mike told him what Carrier was doing. Why do you think Trump is a fat slob? Because he never does anything.
Every narcissist depends on the people around him to do the actual work. No grandiose gonfanon ever got his hands dirty, it’s just not done. It’s a game: If you really love me, then you’ll make good. Please don’t embarrass me.
That’s how Dad operated. I can’t believe what I let him get away with.
