Is Trump Playing 3-D Chess? By New Neo.
But a pattern began, and then that pattern kept repeating over time. One can only describe it this way: Trump does something that his enemies — and even some people who support him — criticize. There’s a big furor. The media reported that now he’s put his foot in his mouth and now he’s sunk himself for real. And yet, when the dust settles (and sometimes it settles rather quickly), we usually find that one or some or all of the following have occurred.
- Trump didn’t say what they said he said.
- His opponents do something in response to what he said that makes them look like the fools.
- The public, in general responds by agreeing with Trump, which causes his polls to go up.
Strange, isn’t it, if he’s such a fool, that these things keep happening over and over and over? Can anyone have that much good luck? The pattern points to a different explanation, which is that he’s an excellent tactician and strategist who acts in ways that flummox people and tend to have a result ultimately favorable to him.
