He Who Laughs Last, Laughs Best: It's beginning to look a lot like I TOLD YOU SO.

Let's take a walk down memory lane.

The year 2011. The place: White House Correspondents' Dinner
The speaker:  President Obama
The fall guy:  Donald Trump!

He who laughs last, laughs best. Now, the year is 2015. It's the early race to the White House. By my calculations, unless Donald Trump pulls a Kaelin Clay (See video below) by prematurely celebrating his victory, it's a lock, he could get the last laugh by becoming the next President of The United States!  Who would have thought it?!

First, let's get something perfectly clear, the average person votes with their heart, not their mind.  Most know very little about the "issues", therefore, if a person moves them; emotionally engages them  (i.e., makes them laugh, inspires them to smile, cry or feel pain) , that person then sit in the catbird's seat. Unlike the other candidates who I'll refer to as "The Dud Dudes", Donald Trump has mastered the art of engaging the audience in a way that makes them believe as if he's one of them. 

It's a new day. It's all about the show. In other words, these days, politics is essentially SHOW-BUSINESS. As the infamous boxing promoter Don King would say, only in America, baby!

Today in America, the day in-which a candidate could win voters by simply being his party's head man, mouthing cookie-cutter rhetoric designed to show voters how  presidential they are, is long gone. Consequently, aside from their other obvious character defects "The Dud Dudes" are practically, emotionally lost in space, leaving Donald Trump to win the Republican nomination by a landslide.  His next opponent, the mighty Clinton train.  

But wait, like Kaelin Clay, the Utah Wide Receiver who committed the blunder of the year by dropping the ball prior to crossing the goal line, Donald Trump could drop the ball before crossing his goal line. 

That said, South Carolina is yet another state the Donald now has in his pocket, as the Dud Dude, Jeb Bush fades into the sunset. He wisely dropped out of the race. 

On Tuesday, November 8, 2016, will Donald do a Kaelin Clay or a happy dance?

This is a repost. With a smile on my face I looked back to say "I told you so".
