In Greek mythology, everything King Midas touched turned into gold. We call this the “Midas Touch.” But there is another kind of magical power which is the opposite of this great feat … it’s called the “Sadim Touch,” where everything that’s touched turns into #!#! … well, you get the idea.
For the curious, Sadim is the reverse spelling of Midas.
Donald Trump has sold himself as the man with the ability to be successful at whatever he attempts. Making money just darn comes naturally to the man! Whatever he touches, we are told, turns out benefitting all involved. Most of Trump’s avid supporters believe he is the candidate with the “Midas Touch” who will bring prosperity (winning) to a great many struggling Americans.
But a close look at Trump’s business record shows his touch is anything but golden.
Trump has the “Sadim Touch.”
Take Trump’s four business bankruptcies. All involved casinos where the rule is “the house never loses.” Or how about these business busts: Trump Steaks; Trump Airlines; Trump Vodka; Trump Mortgage; Trump Magazine; Trump University; Trump The Game; GoTrump.com.
We just recently learned Trump took a nearly one billion dollar loss in 1995. This is the “Sadim Touch” on steroids!
While everything Trump touches seems to turn to #!#!, he, nevertheless, usually does well for himself. His secret? OPM. Always use other people’s money. Never put your own greenbacks at risk.
It looks as if Trump’s greatest reverse-Midas touch is about to unfold before our eyes.
Donald Trump is on track to accomplish what Democrats for decades have been unable to do … bury the GOP.
There is a civil war brewing within the Republican ranks. Members are turning against one another. With each day comes a new GOP politician renouncing his or her party’s presidential nominee. Even the highest elected Republican official, House Speaker Paul Ryan, has said he can no longer defend Trump and has green-lighted his party members to do whatever they think is best for their political futures.
It’s every man and woman for themselves!
The Republican game plan now is to try to hold their majorities in the Senate and in the House. The White House, they painfully realize, is a lost cause.
The GOP elites rolled the dice with Trump and are now stuck with an unelectable candidate. What becomes of the Republican Party is anybody’s guess. It is certainly not the concern of one Donald J. Trump.
We do not know Trump’s end game but it is abundantly clear by now that it is not to win the general election. Trump is doing all he can to shore up his base by continuing to feed them red meat (Jail Hillary!). Trump knows he needs them stoked for his next venture. Could we see a Trump media empire? Or a Trump third party?
While Trump has worked his “Sadim Touch” on the Grand Old Party, you can bet he will come out of this latest disaster smelling like a rose. One way or another, he will make money for himself.
For all the man with the “Sadim Touch” has done, and continues to do, for Democrats, they will forever be grateful.
