10 July 2019 (Wall Street International)* — Gather around, boys and girls. I am going to tell you a story that you may never have heard before because it goes against all the prototypic American stories where the good guy wins the day and gets the girl. Perhaps these stories are old-fashioned and it is the superhero woman who wins the day. But I assure you that there never has been a story like this one.
Imagine, if you will, an old man, bald and fat, who speaks like a thug on a street corner in New York. He is not in disguise. This is who he is.
Yet he does have a super skill that will turn him into the next President of the United States, which he will turn into the non-United States very soon. So pay careful attention or you will easily miss the nuances of how he did it, as have many grownups.
I want to tell you the story of a very bad man, who won an election by cheating and lying. He succeeded by stealing from other businessmen and by abusing women and bribing prostitutes. How did this happen?
Well, he dyed his hair from its natural grey to a yellowish orange and let it grow long enough so that it could be wrapped around his head each morning, making him look much younger than he is.
Then he put a corset over his stomach and lengthened his tie to cover it as much as a tie can. He surrounded himself with beautiful women until it looked like he belonged with them, like there was something desirable about him.
Then he pretended to be rich as a partial explanation of his desirability to these women. To play this part properly, he had to refuse to let anyone see his real record books and tax statements because in reality, he was broke.
