Donald Trump Using The Death Of Dwyane Wade's Cousin To Sway The Black Vote Seems Counterproductive
I am so far beyond taking Donald Trump's words and actions at face value. I genuinely believe that this tweet is just another in a long line of politically (...and civilly, and socially, and humanely) incorrect statements that make up the most intricate and public act of self sabotage in history of nationwide elections. I know referring to Trump as "smart" is frowned upon given the steadily climbing trajectory of indecency he has embarked on throughout his Presidential campaign so I won't. I will say that he's successful enough as a business man to know how disgusting it is to use the cold-blooded murder of a recognizable athlete's family member to pander to the demographic for which she was a part of. Forget the fact that it's disgraceful to use the death of an African American in a attempt to sway the African American vote, because the idea of a politician using tragedy to his advantage isn't new. The idea of a politician trying to use a tragedy to his advantage when the forgone conclusion is failure absolutely is. That's why I refuse to believe this was an actual thought that Donald Trump thought needed publishing.
What I do find funny - in the grimmest of ways, of course - is that even when Donald Trump was trying to use a basketball player's celebrity to politicize the untimely demise of his loved one he still couldn't bother to spell the guy's name right. You just know that before D-Wade reached the end of this tweet and comprehended what Trump was doing, he cursed him under his breathe for mixing up the 'Y' and the 'A'. That misspelling was actually refreshing in the sense that it was a Trump fuck up that I can comfortably believe to be unintentional. I find that I can no longer get a laugh at the outlandish thoughts of 'The Donald' because they have become too preposterous to seem legitimate. He's deliberately transformed himself into an online parody of himself and stupidity is far less humorous when it's not genuine. I can appreciate the Dwyane/Dwayne confusion partly because I am a repeat offender, but mostly because I can look at it and say "what a fucking dumbass" without feeling like that's exactly how he wants me to feel.
