Thought Experiment: A TrumpBot is a vulnerability assessment test...the curtains go up...show over....debate ?

This is plotting an alternative reality...as an attempt to tease out the problems in contemporary politics

1995 : A global brains trust is formed to see what serious vulnerabilities to politics and society that might result, due to globalization and Internet providing a novel hyperconnected world

2000: Serious concerns emerge, the Brains Trust note that one Donald Trump has mere months to live,say due to a brain tumour

2001: Trump passes but is replaced by a TrumpBot no one notices the switch

TrumpBot is uptuned for offensiveness and aggressiveness
TrumpBot gets on TV more,and uses Reality TV to establish its kudos, and actively darken the people
TrumpBot set lose for more of same on Social Media

The GOP grandees meet...and magnanimoudly, agree to put the TrumpBot forward, as a fake candidate in 2016

Election Results Night:
TrumpBot revealed as a fraud, Hillary elected by default

The curtains go up...and the brains trust panel explaibs the findings to the public, in a panel debate style
At the same time, it releases loads of scientific papers dealing the findings,and has a good pr/marketing campaign

So
(1) What are the findings ?
(2) What narrative styles, or framing mechanisms might be used to make the findings digestible to different demographics ?

Nice, but like most conspiracy theories, far too ingenious to have a hope of being probable.

Given a choice between conspiracy or incompetence as a probable cause for any debacle. The smart money always is bet on incompetence.

Trump is a Narcissist, he is also 70years of age and knows his time on this earth diminishes as each day passes. He cannot conceive a world without him, he simply cannot see an earth continuing in any form while he is not influencing it. The presidency represents the perfect opportunity for him to draw the curtain on the whole thing, it's over if he is elected. It's nuclear war with this dude.

It's not a conspiracy theory

It's a speculative alternative history for Earth...designed as a thought experiment...to look at a problem from a fresh angle

Hyberbole much?

Trump isnt a 'bought and paid for' politician in the mould of Mrs. Clinton, Obama, Enda Kenny and Bertie.

This terrifies the incumbents who stand to lose not only control but also some of the vast wealth they have been siphoning off the electorates of the world.

Trump owes the status quo nothing and expect a similar end to JFK if he is elected.
