There’s a lifelong PR formula that has driven the so-called Trump business empire the success of which has been grossly overstated. The legitimacy of Donald Trump’s “billionaire” status has been grossly overstated. He does not now and never did compare favorably to any other reputable billionaire, (Gates, Bezos, Mark Cuban, Michael Bloomberg to name only a few.) Conservative billionaires who have supported Mr. Trump far outclass the New York City huckster. He is not their peer and never was.
Gaslighting a Civic Inferiority.
Here is his formula:
- Take credit for the successes of others. Pretend that any success would not have been possible without Trump influence, Trump approval and Trump initiation.
- Point fingers of blame in any other direction available for any perceived or actual failures. Blame his own supporters and drive an enormous scapegoat bus under which he can throw anyone available.
