Neo-liberal fanboys love charts and graphs. A histogram makes them feel smart. A choropleth makes them feel like ivy-leaguers or NYT data scientists. A trend line through some data points make them feel like prophets who have seen the future.

Hillary's neo-liberal fanboys equate graphs with "facts" or "evidence" because they know that ignorant gun-totting rednecks don't do graphs. Racists, misogynists, trailer trash don't have access to the multivariate regressions or Bayesian inferences that can prove stuff the neo-liberals know is true. Only neo-liberal geniuses have that.

Gloriously and entertainingly, however, Trump is fighting back. He's introducing charts - TrumpCharts!

Firing the neo-liberals bullshít back at them. A hugely smart positive move from the Trump campaign.

Are you a fan of his protectionist, isolationist policies? How do you see them affecting Ireland should he be elected.

Isn't that the basis of most western religions?

It sounds like a clever trick to force him stay on message. Give him a board with some numbers on it and hope to god he doesn't drift off on to hinting at assassinations or Obama's birth cert.

Perhaps they could hang the board around his neck, like schoolchildren in days of yore?

The medium would be the message.

PS: A thread to re-assure us that Trump can add and subtract? Do we need it? Zoo, I say.

It's worth keeping just for the title alone.

You are a fool if you think that a weak and unequal America is in Ireland's interests.
You are a fool if you think Trump cares about how unequal America is.

given how his entire campaign is predicated upon creating racial tension and appealing to people's dark sides - it's bizarre that someone would even introduce such terminology..

It's democrats who play the race card, stirring racial tension under a smokescreen of political correctness.

So basically terrorism related deaths have been on the increase since the US invaded Iraq.

Brilliant.
Can't read a graph? Funny, thought that was the neo-liberals' thing.
