Once again , I turn to the assembled wisdom of the Ricochetti tribes, the Rabble, the Never Rights, the Hopeful Reluctants , the Pessimists and even our handful of Progs.
Our President-Elect is going on a victory rally tour of the newly red colored territories. Before the inauguration. I cannot remember this ever occurring before.
I have expressed a belief that we are seeing a Presidency that believes in offense in the information war, and is using several tools to connect direct to the citizenry and bypass the media. Many in the media see it as cunning but not intelligent, some just discount it. They see no overall strategy.
I ask the assembled Tribes of Ricochetti by claiming my Right of Question:
What’s up with that? Is this a shallow , narcissist just winging it, looking for adulation and attention or do you discern a plan, a coordination and a structure to derail the media’s ability to frame and define the image as they have for other Presidents?
Simple question, on a scale from clueless, hapless narcissist working at random to master persuader media warfare Sun Tzu, what do you see so far?
Bonus round: Will the rallies continue and what kind of viewership do you think he will get if they do? Will he do them after inauguration?
Over to you tribal members. Serious answers appreciated, humorous answers better be really funny and leave your vitriol at the hitching post outside of town, you can claim it when you leave. We don’t want any fights breaking out when the tribes assemble.
