Over the past months I’ve explained the “maze” theory of Donald Trump’s communication strategy. At the G-20 meetings in Europe, once again we have a classic example of misdirection and smokescreens to cover real, serious achievements.
Again, if you haven’t followed this, the assumption at the Trump White House is that
a) the fake news media will never, ever give positive coverage to any Trump program, no matter how successful or badly needed.
b) contrary to the old saw, “There’s no such thing as bad publicity,” Team Trump has decided that in fact no publicity is better. Let the programs and policies get implemented and people will see the results for themselves.
c) therefore, drawing attention away from the real policy objectives and achievements is a key element of success.
Hence, “covfefe” “PsychoJoe,” and the wrestling video.
The G-20 meeting offered a new, perfect example of how Trump’s Twitteronomics works. Among the administration’s central goals for the meetings were (as always) new trade policies—including liquid natural gas deals with Poland—and a frank discussion of areas of agreement and points of difference with Vladimir Putin and the Russian delegation.
So what does Trump tweet about almost immediately?
“Everyone here is talking about why John Podesta refused to give the DNC server to the FBI and the CIA. Disgraceful!”
And the fake news media fell for it. The predictably ever-offended Washington Post asked “Everyone? Really?” Of course not everyone. Indeed, in Europe, 95% of the delegates probably never even heard of John Podesta and even of those who had, only a tiny handful were likely aware of his problems with the DNC server and the phishing expedition that landed Hillary’s e-mails in the public discourse.
And Trump knows that.
It was a classic two-fer: in a single “cheese in the maze” tweet, Trump set the news cycle yet again with the American fake news media—which began exactly as the Post did, questioning the accuracy of the term “everyone.” Yet, there it was: Trump somehow got Podesta and Hillary’s e-mails back in the public eye months after they (supposedly) had disappeared.
There is a maxim that the Bible is written for different audiences—that the Old Testament and the Law were written for Jews, and really had no relevance to anyone who wasn’t a Jew or didn’t want to convert. The New Testament was written for Christians, and the admonitions therein only applied to believers, not to Hindus or Buddhists or followers of other religions. Then there were the parts of the Bible written for all (“For God so loved the world . . . .”). But not everyone is bound by the Jewish law, nor is everyone bound by the instructions to Christian believers. Those parts of the Book aren’t for everyone.
The same applies to Trump’s tweeting. He’s like a super deluxe Westinghouse refrigerator: his supporters have the instruction book. They know when he’s speaking to them; they understand his phrases and, yes, his humor. But people working off a GE instruction manual or some other brand won’t have a clue. The instructions will be meaningless, all the more so because they lack any sense of humor about themselves at all.
Trump is a true culture warrior in the Andrew Breitbart mold, who understands how messages get through to ordinary people (70% of whom got their primary election information from the web in 2016!)
Most of Trump’s daily tweets are about real achievements, including meetings with foreign dignitaries, laws signed, executive orders issued, and so on. Those are for the “believers”—they are the daily achievement updates. Haters often don’t even both to read those, let alone understand their significance, for to that group nothing Trump can ever do will be positive.
But then there are the “PsychoJoe” and Podesta tweets. While Trumpers may get a chuckle out of these, everyone knows they are the cheese for the media to follow and that the real stuff is in other tweets.
There is, however, usually another ulterior motive for the “cheesy” Trump tweets: they usually signal some strategic movement, such as the delegitimization of CNN, or the possibility that some agency has “tapes of Comey’s meeting with Trump (even though Trump may not have them), or that the next phase of the Justice Department’s activities will involve a serious look at the lack of cooperation between the DNC and the FBI.
And that won’t be cheese, but a wasabi snooter, right up the Democrats’ noses.

ACQUITTED FOREVER: President Trump is Found ‘Not Guilty’ by the Senate and Will Remain in Office Following Impeachment
The Democrats wasted the public’s time and money with this charade.
President Donald Trump has been officially acquitted of two articles of impeachment and will not be convicted following his impeachment by the House of Representatives. He will remain in office despite the best efforts of the Democrats.
“The Senate having tried Donald John Trump, President of the United States, upon two articles of impeachment exhibited against him by the House of Representatives, and two-thirds of the Senators present not having found him guilty of the charges contained therein, it is therefore ordered and adjudged that the said Donald John Trump be and he is hereby acquitted of the charges in said articles,” Chief Justice John Roberts said to conclude the trial.

On the first article of impeachment pertaining to abuse of power, 48 senators determined that Trump was guilty while 52 determined he was not guilty. On the second article of impeachment pertaining to obstruction of Congress, 47 senators determined that Trump was guilty while 53 determined he was not guilty.
The Senate would have had to garner a supermajority of 67 Senators to determine that Trump was guilty of impeachable offenses. However, not even a simple majority could come to that conclusion even though the Democrats threw everything but the kitchen sink in an attempt to convince them.
“You can’t trust this president to do the right thing, not for one minute, not for one election, not for the sake of the country,” said House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA). “A man without character or ethical compass will not find his way.”
The Democrat-led proceedings ended up being a massive waste of time at great expense to the U.S. taxpayer, as Trump and his Republican supporters said they would be.
“The president has done nothing wrong, and these types of impeachments must end,” said White House counsel Pat Cipollone about the witch hunt that occurred.
With impeachment now behind him, President Trump can focus on enacting his agenda and winning re-election in November.
