The Trump Trance

Let me begin by saying I love Zombies. I will watch or read anything Zombie related. In fact, I love listening to The Zombies, “Tell Her No” is one of my favorites.

“Tell Her No”, might be a kinda, sorta segue into talking about the Donald’s recent troubles. Maybe if the Donald had learned to “Tell Her No” when all of those women were throwing themselves at him, forcing him to abuse and violate them, the Donald might be winning the polls. Instead, he is speaking to less and less people as his dedicated followers become shamed by his actions. Even the most ardent Republican party-liners are holding their nose and looking the other way.

But what about the remaining followers? Who are these Zombies that will follow the Donald over the cliff in the blind pursuit of “making America great again”? Well, first off, they are people who believe facts will never “trump” firm convictions. Absolutely no evidence can dissuade the Donald’s supporters that we are not headed to Hell in a hand basket.

No evidence can be brought forward that will convince these Zombies that Obama has been a very good President. Pointing out to Trump supporters that Obama did a great job in spite of a completely dysfunctional Congress’ lack of support is like waving a bucket of brains in front of a Zombie. It sends them into a frenzy. The Zombies reaction to a black president is almost as strong as it is to the thought of a woman President. Why? What is this broken portion of the brain that no longer responds to reason or reality?

I’ve come to believe that the Donald has figured out a viable subliminal message system and is using it to disconnect the frontal lobes of his followers. Just like the movie theaters used to do by flashing pictures of popcorn and candy to entice the audience to the concession stand, the Donald is showing imagery of evil immigrants of every color and religious persuasion to cause his Zombies to salivate for their blood.

I don’t think the Donald’s skilled oratory can explain the trance like state of his followers. Even when rousing the rabble with exultations from the podium like, “Maybe he should have been roughed up, because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing.”, I feel like the audience’s actions are less about the words than some complete loss of cognition, or, susceptibility to the subliminal messaging.

Perhaps the Donald’s participation in the election was all about Beta testing the “Trump Trance”. I can see a whole world wide marketing campaign unfold. The program would only be found in the gift shops of Trump hotels. The copy just writes itself:

“Book your next team bonding event at a Trump Hotel and receive one complementary “Trump Trance” program. “Trump Trance”, guaranteed to get your employees thinking just the way you want them to”.
