Letter: Trump the ultimate plutocrat

I know that it is impossible to change perceptions once established, but perhaps I can keep someone from becoming a Trumpist.

Donald is the ultimate plutocrat, or government-run-by-the-wealthy candidate. The AP media, a monopoly run by its owner to create our views and let us know how we feel about them, has been very productive for Don. PR is a focused science. Social psychology shapes all advertising and sales.

Donald’s depreciating nicknames reflect GW Bush’s depreciating nicknames that he gave to his intellectual superiors whom he needed to control.

I read three valley newspapers that run identical AP inputs, the same with TV news and Clear Channel radio news, only the editorials and letters differ, thankfully, but not much.

The way one becomes a billionaire is to steal millions from a thousand or thousands from a million or hundreds from a hundred million. It doesn’t matter, we take it all without regret and buy a bigger airplane. Don has done that too, times 10, if you believe him.

As a pathological liar, we tell stories we believe in at the time, because it works for our purpose. It can always be changed later, if the news works with me. Science shows that the more we lie, the bigger our brain becomes. The better to keep track of it all. I guess that evolution.

Best Regards,

John Hoffmann
