Hot take alert. Also, this is NOT an endorsement of any presidential candidate.
Donald J. Trump’s latest diharrea of the mouth might be worth a closer sniff. #NeverTrump pundits and late night talk show hosts are calling for the Donald’s poorly toupeed head after he called for Russia or China to find Hillary’s missing emails.Did he ask a foreign country to meddle in our political system? Yes. Did he break the Geneva Convention? Possibly. Was this the worst thing he’s ever done? Not even close … did you watch Celebrity Apprentice? My point being that Teflon Donald might be onto something here. Hear me out …
You’ve heard your boss say it in your annual review and you read, er skimmed, all about it in those self help books you flipped through at Barnes and Noble when you got put on the performance plan at work: “work smarter, not harder.” Rosie O’Donnell’s arch nemesis is employing the oldest trick in the titans of commerce book: outsourcing. Despite his outward appearance, uncanny ability to relate to those who read at a 3rd grade level, and barely being “smarter than a 5th grader” Donald is giving a fucking clinic in Management 101. And they said Trump University was a scam! This power move that ranks somewhere between not showing up for a debate and claiming he’ll have Mexico pay for a wall is a stroke of genius. Why not have Russian hackers, who are the 1927 Yankees of cyber crime, do what our government hasn’t been able to do? If you wanted to run a sushi restaurant, you’d hire a Japanese chef wouldn’t you?
This is the first move that makes me think “that fucking guy (kinda) gets it.” That or this has been an outrageous Jimmy Kinmel skit where he’s been wearing a Donald Trump suit to prove how stupid Americans are. I digress. Donald knows he can’t run the country by himself, and likely at all, so he’s surrounding himself with the best in the business. I’m sure he’ll have Jewish accountants, Indian doctors and black secret service. It’s science, guys.
As a citizen of corporate America I can appreciate this move. He’s throwing every business cliche in the book at this election with this move. Opening the kimono. Doing a deep dive. He’s not leaving anything on the back burner. While Hillary is over there promising she’ll work tirelessly for the American people Donald is working smarter than the average bear, er, candidate.
That or he’s got terrets.
