Trump’s Ability to be Manipulated is Unreal

(Before It's News)

The Hill reports that President Trump is none too pleased with the potrayal of Stephen Bannon, his chief advisor, as being the man behind the curtain manipulating the president.

Saturday Night Live” has taken to habitually poking fun at the Trump administration, but a skit depicting Chief White House Strategist Steve Bannon as the Grim Reaper manipulating President Trump reportedly struck a chord with the real estate mogul, The Washington Postsaid Tuesday.

In the sketch, which aired earlier this month, Bannon — portrayed by an actor in a Grim Reaper costume — encourages Trump to engage in a number of unprofessional and confrontational phone calls with world leaders, including Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Basically, SNL, if I might venture a guess, would like to see Bannon ousted from the president’s inner circle as they (like I) consider him to be a dangerous man. The reason they believe he is dangerous is because they (like I) believe Trump can be manipulated fairly easily and Bannon’s ends are frighteningly apocalyptic.

Here’s the sketch:

Amazingly, it works perfectly. Merely the suggestion he is being manipulated hurts his fragile, child-like ego so much that it appears to be putting distance between them.

SNL is literally manipulating Trump by saying he’s easily manipulated.

In some ways, it’s a ray of hope. I’ve long considered Trump to be malleable in his beliefs but I think I underestimated exactly how simple it is to compel him to do what we want. Want Bannon gone? Hurt Trump’s ego. Want an Obamacare replacement? Hurt Trump’s ego. Want him to consider Russia an adversary as opposed to an ally? Hurt Trump’s ego.

And while it is startling and unprecedented in my opinion that someone with such a fragile self-image could paradoxically be a billionaire and President of the United States, it seems all is not lost.

So in the spirit of that, I don’t think Donald Trump would ever fire Stephen Bannon. He doesn’t have the balls.

  • Author, your article does not change the fact, even if you are correct, that Donald Trump has an ally that you cannot beat. When Donald Trump decides to begin to take orders from his ally the Almighty democrats, liberals, pedophiles, communists, socialists the elite of the world Rothschild and Rockefeller families will be defeated. Many of these enemies of humanity will die of old age or a directed heart attack or other disease.

    The Almighty is the final say of the when, where and how of human DEATH.
