    I just had to laugh reading this. Is it me, or does Trump seem obsessed with his public image? The irony is that just a short time before his tantrum against the network, he was touting Fox News for their coverage of a positive economy.

    According to Fox News's poll that was released on Thursday, Biden has a ten point lead over the president, 49% to 39% respectively. The poll also shows that Trump would lose by a slightly smaller margin to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, 46% to 40%.

    how much to politicians and political partys pay to advertising consultants, image consultants and marketing companys to re-brand, re-make, change and vary public perceptions of their image ?

    10's of millions !

    its big business

    1 tweet that gets into the tv news is probably worth $500,000.00

    how much would it cost to buy a 25 second slot in all the big major news TV broadcasts ?

    TV poll results swing swing-voters.

    why did the TV channels not go crazy polling everyone about the womens march ?




    how much money has Donald made for Fauxpews by endorsing them ?
    They are supposed to be his marketing company
    they obliviously lost the point
    now watch them suffer
    lol

    Very true. Trump desperately needs to be rebranded. lol But, my firm for example, only works with companies /individuals who are interested in correcting their dysfunctional behaviors that led to their tattered image to begin with. Trump is a sociopath, unable to self reflect - not sure there would be any hope of ''rebranding'' him, to be honest. (without just appearing fake)

    The sad thing_Trump likes his image, me thinks. *shrug*

    It doesn't matter. Trump is not speaking to the people who are skeptical of him, so it doesn't matter what kind of idiocy he says, and he knows it.

    He is always speaking to his base, and his base eats up everything he says.
    It's not that they don't think he's lying, it's that they don't care.

    Fascist demagogues tell obvious lies in public for the same reason they bully in other ways: to demonstrate their power, their strength, their control.

    Like a peacock's tail - it's public proof that they are strong, dominant, in control,; that what they say goes, regardless of anything including reality itself.

    From the Mighty Sparrow, about the Trumps (and Reagans and Ws) of the Caribbean, fifty + years ago:
    "And if I say that Solomon
    shall be Minister of External Affairs
    and you don't like it?
    Get to hell out of here!"

    I would say that's true.

    The things he might lie about seem inconsequential when compared to the straightforward way the problems are presented and possible solutions are provided.

    Thanks for pointing that out. Trump must feel like his arse is infested with maggots at this point.

    They care. They appreciate. They want power on their side - proven, demonstrated strength. That's a common way to prove one possesses it. Who was the Caesar who nominated and installed a horse in the Roman Senate? Same principle.

    He's strong enough to make the liberals eat his words no matter what he says - he proves that, daily. He suffers no consequences, thereby demonstrating that he is running the show
    and the pencil necked geeks who bow and scrape to "reality based" stuff and cannot afford to get caught in even trivial stretchers are not.

    As with all fascist demagogues, Trump lies to demonstrate strength - to demonstrate that he can, and suffer no consequences. The more obvious the lie the better it serves that purpose.

    He's lying about them, as well.

    The problems, the solutions, are all lies.

    The reason they like the way he lies - straightforward, as you described - is that getting away with such blatant and straightforward lying proves he has power. They think he's on their side, see, so his demonstrating impunity and bullying people is all good by them.

    Same as with Reagan, same as with Limbaugh, same as with Gingrich, Lee Atwater, Karl Rove, Frank Luntz, Ann Coulter, - this goes back decades.

    They want bigmouth bullies on their side, bullying for them, because they they see brazen discourtesy as a sign of strength and competence. The Republican voting base is made up of the guys you see standing behind the bully, the sidekicks of the bad guy, in the B movies they watch without a flicker of self-recognition.

    This makes the adult men in the US who voted for Reagan, Bush, W, and now Trump, quite possibly the most gullible and immature adult men on this planet. They don't even have ignorance to excuse them - their ignorance is self-imposed, willful and defended.
    - - - - - - - -
    Here is something the American liberal and lefty has always known about Ronald Reagan, for example: https://www.businessinsider.com/ron...uage-against-africans-in-released-tape-2019-7
    Apparently, that is news to some Americans. How could that possibly be? Because Reagan was the beneficiary of brazen lies told by him and by others on his behalf.
    That's the Republican Party, since 1968. Every single elected Republican President since the passage of Lyndon Johnson's civil rights legislation campaigned as a shitbag racial bigot. And won.

    Trump=Republican Republican=Trump.
