You’ve probably heard of Donald Trump. He’s the President of the United States.
You also probably know his country HATES him right now.
With multiple scandals brewing and disastrous foreign and domestic policy mistakes, only 37% of the U.S. currently approves of his job performance, according to the most recent Gallup poll.
But this Trump is a cunning fellow. And he knew that with ONE SIMPLE TRICK, he could distract people from issues of actual consequence.
Ready to find out? It’s pretty crazy.
So apparently Trump has a Twitter account that he uses a lot. Over 40 million people follow it, and his tweets get massive coverage in the media.
With the knowledge of this, Trump knew that if he constantly tweeted about NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem, he could make it the #1 national story and totally distract everyone from his and his administration’s past and likely future failures!
Never mind the fact that the players are simply exercising their first amendment rights, and never mind the fact that earlier this year, Trump tweeted this explicit defense of the very action the players are taking:
But really though, who cares about Puerto Rico (part of the U.S.) still being in horrible shape following Hurricane Maria, Trump’s escalation of the North Korea nuclear threat, Russian collusion, and no promised solutions on healthcare and tax reform despite Republican congressional majorities?
None of that matters anymore because people whose job it is to play a game aren’t standing fully erect during a song.
Talk about one simple and incredible trick!
We could all learn a thing or two from this Donald Trump. When you’re in big trouble, just totally deflect, distract, and change the subject to something of no relative importance.
You may even become President someday!
