Crybaby Trump Hypocritically Calls Boycotts ‘Vicious’ and ‘Crazed’: Here are 10 of His Own

One of the most frequent defense tactics employed by Donald Trump is to accuse your accusers of the same thing that you’re guilty of. It mainly serves as a distraction and a method of casting false blame on others. But it’s an irrational tactic that doesn’t actually exonerate the person using it. They remain guilty, but only equally as guilty as the falsely charged victim.

Donald Trump, Boycott

That may be sufficient for Trump’s purposes, which is generally to shift attention away from his crimes until the next scandal erupts. But it also highlights how shallow and deceptive his arguments are. And even more problematic, it showcases his rabid hypocrisy.

Case in point. Trump went off on Twitter about a grassroots boycott of Home Depot after it’s co-founder, Bernie Marcus, announced that he would be donating a large portion of his wealth to reelecting Trump. The President blasted out a three-tweet tirade in defense of Marcus that included an overt threat aimed at his critics:

Naturally, anyone who pays tribute to the Narcissist-and-Thief is regarded as “truly great” and “patriotic.” And it is verboten to disparage him in any way. Those who do are “radicals” with ulterior motives. As opposed to free citizens exercising their constitutional rights.

Also, notice that when Trump refers to “your favorite President” he has to explicitly identify himself. That’s because no one would actually think of him in that context without such prompting. He goes on to malign boycotts as “vicious and totally crazed,” but in the very same tweet calls on his aptly named Deplorables to launch their own. And why wouldn’t he? Crazed viciousness is his trademark.

Finally, Trump dives head first into the “accuse your accusers” maneuver. After describing the strategy of “using Commerce to hurt” others, and acknowledging that it causes indiscriminate pain, he blatantly orders his glassy-eyed disciples to charge ahead with their own assault on commerce.

What’s most disturbing about this is that Trump is either suffering from some form of Alzheimer’s or he is being deliberately dishonest (or both). In this Twitter tantrum Trump fails to mention that boycotts have been a frequent weapon of choice for his own battles. For the record he has called for boycotts at least ten times, mostly against American businesses: Harley-Davidson, CNN, Apple, Macy’s, Fox News, Univision, Mexico, HBO, Rolling Stone, and most recently AT&T. As seen on his own Twitter feed:

This is only a partial list. Other victims of Trump’s boycott frenzy include Starbucks, Oreos, Ford, and many more. Clearly Trump has separate standards for himself and everyone else. But there is a bigger problem here. There’s a significant difference between citizens independently voting with their pocketbooks when there is an issue that they feel strongly about, and a president whose bully pulpit ought to never be used against the companies and workers he was elected to represent. Trump is the one who doesn’t care about who he hurts, and he is deliberately causing harm to the American people and economy when he bashes domestic enterprises.

There has never been an American president who so brazenly sought to damage businesses that are major employers of American workers. No other president would have even thought of such a thing. But Trump only thinks of himself. Even when he attacks foreign businesses he is blinded by his selfishness. He went after products made in China despite the fact that many of his (and Ivanka’s) are manufactured there and his businesses buy Chinese goods by the boatload.

The American people should be concerned that their President will so callously attack the companies that employ them, their families, and neighbors. The next target of Trump’s wrath could very well be their own employer. It is unethical and anti-American for any leader to deliberately try to harm the companies that keep Americans working. But then the president that has called the media “the enemy of the people” obviously couldn’t care less about the damage he does to American workers, even including physical assaults and death threats.
