Trump-Alinsky

After last night’s debate I realized that Trump is channeling Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals better than his opponent, especially

“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions”

and

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions”.
