Casual Trump, Rally Trump and Prompter Trump

The 3 Personas of Donald Trump-Morning Joe MSNBC Oct 2018 MSNBC

A clip from Morning Joe on MSNBC interviewing Anthony Atamanuik on the key to playing Donald Trump in Comedy Central’s The President Show.  Anthony reveals:

  1. Physically Trump  has three main body postures;  act like you have no gravity, keep your arms up, moving and waving all the time, and when you turn crane stiffly like an animal.
  2. Mentally you should abandon all logic, morality, and any sense of order.
  3. His three main personas are Casual Trump, Rally Trump and Prompter Trump.

“And how worried you should be about each of them.”

  • The Apprentices

  • Canaries in the Coal Mine

  • The Enraged

The Apprentices: These folks admire Trump’s celebrity, his certainty, and his bluster. They don’t know much about the issues, so Trump’s habitual lying and refusal to learn the basic details about even a single subject is not something they particularly care about (or understand). He says he can solve the problems. Sounds good. They are, in a way, the voters America deserves. Celebrity-obsessed near-imbeciles who want Trump to win because he’s TV’s best show (although it was a lot funnier before they got rid of Little Marco and replaced him with that fat guy who just stands in the background looking like he’s about to throw up). He’s the show they can’t stop binge-watching. And come on, having Melania as the co-star is a major plus. For these voters, Trump’s presidency will be measured not against history, but against other forms of televised entertainment. And by that standard, there’s little doubt this will be the highest rated show on TV.

The Mysterious Pin The Trump Campaign Won’t Explain

David Morgante It probably identifies the people who protect him. When there are so many people who would like to do him harm its probably a good idea to have it so his people are easily recognizable.

Alan Shippee I would generally say you are correct it is a well-known fact that the secret service has a large book of lapel pins that they choose a different one every day and those who wear that pin are the ones that are allowed to actually be physically next to the president

Dom Price It’s a herald insignia. Possibly a symbol Trump intends to use for his political movement. Fascist regimes make heavy use of symbolism and badges to identify supporters. It’s likely to identify members of Trump’s inner circle, in much the same way the See More

Dave Emerson It identifies Trump private security staff, as well as campaign “inner circle” staff who are allowed to get close to Trump. The Secret Service uses the same method with a red pin. It’s an easy visual identifier to allow his security to pick out people who don’t belong quickly. Simply look at their left lapel, if they don’t have the pin there, they aren’t allowed close.

Amy Boring I volunteered at the Bernie Sanders rally in San Diego. They had them on too. It’s simply Campaign staffers. Much like a lanyard it made it easy to identify people that could move freely from place to place on the rally floor.

As much as I disagree with Trump this video is propaganda.

Frank Newberry Wow… people will go to any length to attack Donald J. Trump… or to cast a shadow of doubt around him… those are not Campaign aides… they are Secret servicemen… not affiliated with Trump’s campaign, but assigned to protect him

Donald Trump

 

Experience taught me a few things. One is to listen to your gut, no matter how good something sounds on paper. The second is that you’re generally better off sticking with what you know. And the third is that sometimes your best investments are the ones you don’t make.
