Impakter magazine has just published a fascinating piece from my dear Canadian friend and sociologist Hannah Fischer Lauder. And I wanted to share it with you, I think it’s a must read and a real eye-opener on what kind of man Trump really is. Scary.
Here is the beginning of the article:
THE HIDDEN ROOTS OF TRUMP’S FIGHTING INSTINCT
The bizarre video Trump attached to yet another “modern presidential” tweet showing him wrestling with CNN has a lot more behind it than the press has yet uncovered.
The outrage about it being un-presidential, while understandable, ignores something far more fundamental and revealing: this video is just the tip of the iceberg. It is not simply a video of a single event that happened in 2007, it is part of a series of events that Trump was involved in. He’s been interested in wrestling since the 1980s when his Trump Plaza casino held to Wrestlemania events back to back.
With this video, what we see emerging is a whole side of Trump that few people outside the world of Wrestlemania and World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) knew about. It speaks to his experience as a WWE supporter for over three decades – but not only that, there’s more to it as I will explain below, and that is what made him the man he is today. In fact, Trump is a long-time friend of the billionaire WWE founders, Vince and Lisa McMahons, who have lavishly supported his campaign, and he has rewarded them by appointing Lisa McMahon, who is already a member of Congress, as head of the Federal Small Business Administration.
This much of the story has come out in a small part of the press, for example, in Metro.co.UK but it hasn’t yet been dissected by the mainstream media, or what conservatives now call “the establishment media”, a term meant to highlight a supposed partiality to “elite” viewpoint and positions.
In particular, the more worrying part of Trump’s past has yet to come to light, though it is known.
