October surprise: Hugh Hefner is a womanizer
October 16, 2016 § 16 Comments
Donald Trump is about twenty years older than me. He has been a public figure my entire life. As a rich playboy with a giant ego and trashy morals who loves the spotlight it has been impossible not to know about him. For crying out loud, the man builds monumental hotels with his name on them. I remember watching fireworks in Oahu some years ago from one of those silly revolving restaurants and being annoyed that a new enormous monument to Trump’s ego was blocking the view.
I despise the kind of trashy culture where people have paternity tests revealed on ‘live’ TV while screaming at each other. But I can’t help being aware of it. There is no escape from it.
Doing due diligence on all the various claims made by the screaming decadents is something against which my mind rebels. If someone has an actual, credible rape charge against Trump – as there is against Bill Clinton – then by all means let me know. Otherwise I really don’t need the details, as if any of it could be even slightly surprising.
Donald Trump has always been a public part of American trash culture, for as long as I have been alive. I always figured that Bill Clinton golfed with Trump precisely because that would give Clinton access to more young chicks to grope. I’ve always thought it was pretty obvious why the man’s favorite businesses were casinos and beauty pageants. I’d be happy to hit you in the face with a hammer, if that helped.
Sure, some percentage of women wouldn’t respond well to the advances of the casino Don. Some actually would respond, but then would be angry later that Big Don didn’t appreciate their snowflake specialness. But as we all know, pickup artistry is a numbers game; and celebrity odds start out much higher than everyman in a funny hat. I am sure it helps to buy businesses that attract trashy ambitious women who like to show a lot of skin. That is just good marketing when you are optimizing for a particular result.
Someone who acts shocked – shocked! – to ‘discover’ that Donald Trump is a handsy cad like Bill Clinton, because this has just now in the present hour been revealed in an October Surprise, is like someone who has just discovered that Hugh Hefner is a womanizer.
It doesn’t reveal principle: it reveals breathtaking lack of awareness of the obvious, an easily manipulated mind, or both.
