Smart Managers And Subordinates

How should #OfficeSmart managers and subordinates view each other?

Being in middle management position in a corporation I have acquired experience as subordinate as well as manager by making mistakes and learning lessons at both levels.

Sharing some thoughts – in the form of aphorisms – to put things in perspective for managers and subordinates as to how each should view the other in office.

Managers fail by being too nice to subordinates. Subordinates fail by expecting too high ethics from the management. Because in being so, both lose focus from what matters at each level.

A manager does not need to be nice at the cost of work extraction from subordinates. A subordinate does not need to expect high management ethics at the cost of good relation with the manager.

That is, of course, if they want to succeed in the company. (Success = recognition from superiors > growth).

A manager should be concerned with getting the subordinates’ work, not their respect. Subordinates should be concerned with the manager’s respect, not his work (management style towards them).

If subordinates give work and don’t respect the manager, it should not matter to the manager. If the manager respects the subordinate but his management style is bad, it should not matter to the subordinate.

Some managers worry about losing subordinates’ respect and fail to extract work. Some subordinates overtly keep finding fault with the management style and fail to earn respect of the manager.

Both of the above – managers who overrate respect from subordinates and subordinates who underrate respect from the manager – are playing it wrong.

An office is not a place where one should expect to find saints (message to subordinates), nor should one expect to reap rewards for being saintly (message to managers).

Office smartness is to have only and only one focus that is growth, and doing what it takes to grow in the company. Ethics are useful only insofar as they serve the goal.

Cardinal Rules For Office

If you are working in office, below are the rules you must observe if you want to grow in the company. Do not underestimate the importance of any of them. I have learned these things the hard way.

I’ll call it being office smart.

Keep your thoughts to yourself

At office, it is a mistake to express your real thoughts, ideologies and political views. Don’t even share your thoughts on social media unless you can keep your social media profiles hidden from everyone at office. Not only should you not share your own thoughts, you must also keep from sharing random jokes, quotes and memes.

By expressions of the aforementioned sort you will likely go out of favor with your superiors. You will either offend someone, or make them insecure by outshining them. You may affect their ego even by expressing an innocuous opinion that is different from theirs. This may not happen all the time. But there is no way for you to know what will affect whom, in what way and to what extent.

If you are pressed to reveal your thoughts on any subject, modestly say you don’t consider yourself to be learned on it but tend to agree with their (the person you are with) views. Everyone likes people who have the same views as them!

Remain intellectually mediocre

Your growth in a company depends on intellectual mediocrity. You may be Einstein or Aristotle, but no one cares. Mind your work and be good at it. Showing your intellectual superiority will get you labelled as weirdo. Office is not the place to showcase your intellect.

Have you ever seen anyone in higher management who is intellectual? I haven’t. And even if some day I see one, I’m sure being intellectual is not a pre-requisite for growth in management hierarchy.

Be mysterious

There are many advantages of being mysterious. Don’t give anyone at work – especially the superiors – a window into your mind. Your bosses need to know only one thing about you – your capabilities at work. Be the best at your work.

For best being marginally better than everyone else at your level would suffice. When you are good at your work and rest all about you is mystery, there is nothing about you that will give negative impression. Plus, your work related capabilities will create a halo effect. People will fill in the blanks and practically assume positives of you in other areas based on the fact that you are good at work.

Don’t reveal your moods

Learn to keep poker face most of the time. Don’t be over enthusiastic when you are happy (you got praise, promotion or some achievement at work), and don’t ever show anger or frustration. The former will make people jealous and/or insecure, and the latter will get you labelled as immature.

Remain calm and composed always. Smile at appropriate moments, like when you see/greet someone. When at desk, poker face is what you want to keep irrespective of your mood.

Give your boss gifts

Everyone likes gifts. Remember, even an enemy likes receiving gifts. Giving your boss a gift occasionally (like on a birthday) may work wonders.

Don’t worry that your boss will suspect you of ass-licking. In a way it is. But giving a birthday gift is perfectly legitimate. Just don’t tell everyone when you do that. You want to be the only one (or of the few) to give gifts to the boss.

If the boss doesn’t like your idea, it’s a bad idea

You can definitely think “out-of-the-box” and provide suggestions, but if your boss dismisses the idea, give it up right that moment. Do not try to make him understand how your idea is better unless he asks you to explain at length. Remember, the boss always knows better. He sees things that you can’t see. (Of course, I’m being sarcastic.)

Know that if you have a different idea than your boss about something, it is good only if its implementation is going to benefit your boss. If you are thinking of sharing the idea because it is morally superior or for some such reason, don’t proceed. If the idea is not benefiting the boss, he does not care how superior it is.

Talk to your boss like his dad died today

I couldn’t stop laughing when a good friend of mine offered me this gem of an advice. This is the frame you want to keep every time you talk to your boss. Whenever your boss enters your vicinity tell yourself that his dad has died today.

Would you show your excitement about anything to him when his dad has just died? Or would you show your frustration about work? Or would you complain about anything? Or argue? Or would you make a joke at his expense? You get the drift.

Don’t dress better than your boss

You may have a very good knowledge of fashion and dressing sense, but don’t make a mistake of dressing better than your boss. If the clothes and accessories on you are better than your boss, that will make him feel insecure and threatened.

You don’t want to outshine your master.

There’s no room for political incorrectness

This is one of the most important rules you absolutely must remember at all times. I have already stated above that you should keep your thoughts and ideologies to yourself, and that point covers this. However, I can’t emphasize enough how fatal being politically incorrect at office can be.

In case you don’t know what it means, if you are against man-woman equality, feminism, gay rights, fat-is-beautiful culture, or any other issue on the liberal agenda, it would be the end of your growth, and probably even employment, if you express it to anyone at the office.

Trump Wins: Triumph Of The Righteous

Trump wins the presidency of the United States.

People on the other side are shocked. Many can’t digest Trump’s victory. They are thinking, everyone on TV kept saying he was a clown, racist, misogynist, Hitler, and whatnot. Until the election day the media put his odds of winning at no more than 20%. How could he win!

The other side never believed in Trump’s message of Make America Great Again. They believed that America was already great. They were wrong. I think America is now set to be great again. I believe in Trump. And you should too, if you’re uncertain.

Let’s examine why people should believe in Trump.

Trump did not win on his own. In primaries, yes. He won the Republican party’s nomination by knocking off all other candidates completely on his own using his best in class persuasion skills (the link refers to the A-class commentary on the election and a treasure of literature on persuasion). But it was not possible for him to win the presidency because he was practically one man fighting both the opposition as well as his own party.

Who helped Trump win?

Julian Assange (WikiLeaks), James O’Keefe (Project Veritas), and people like Mike Cernovich, Stefan Molyneux, Paul Joseph Watson, and countless other citizen journalists, meme artists and social media users.

And who helped Hillary win?

All of MSM (Mainstream Media), Google-Facebook-Twitter, the Obamas, and might I also add, Jay Z and Beyoncé. (Add to the list Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Lena Dunham,.. Almost all of Hollywood.)

Now here’s the important questions people should ask themselves that may clear their mind:

  • What do all who helped Trump have in common?
  • And how they are different from those who helped Hillary Clinton.

People who helped Trump:

They all served truth that the establishment suppressed. WikiLeaks by definition leaks government secrets in service of the public. Project Veritas provided footage (here, here and here) obtained through a series of sting operations that exposed many a corrupt schemes – involving mass voter fraud, inciting paid violence at Trump rallies which the media then would blame on Trump – by DNC and the Clinton campaign to sabotage the righteous campaign of Trump.

All the people who made Trump’s historic victory possible are the bearers of truth. Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, is a hero who has literally given up his life to bring truth to the public.

People who helped Hillary:

The biggest arm of Hillary’s campaign has been the mainstream media – which is distrusted by whopping 94% of people. To call the media biased would be flattering. This time around they were downright hoaxing. The mainstream media stopped even pretending to be neutral. They were blatantly biased, they lied, spread hoaxes, colluded with the Hillary Camp (as proven by WikiLeaks), got caught and kept doing the same in their desperation. But in the end, they failed. The truth prevailed, thanks to the Internet. The mainstream media probably got dealt a death blow.

Google, Facebook, Twitter,… All of them proved that that are sold to the globalists. Google largely censored positive stories about Trump and hid negative stories about Hillary, manipulated its auto-complete search feature. (I tested it myself too.) Facebook kept the biggest stories about Trump from trending. After all, they funded Hillary’s campaign to defeat TrumpTwitter shadowbanned Trump’s tweets and even deleted some! There is so much evidence of all this that the mind boggles.

Obamas. To know what lying bunch of hypocrites the Obamas are one needs to look no further than 2008 and see what they said about Hillary while campaigning against Hillary. Obama has lied and showed his true colors at numerous occasions this election season. He lied about being unaware about Hillary’s use of illegal private email server to handle work related and classified emails (again, proven by WikiLeaks). He lied about Donald Trump being the first presidential candidate who said that elections could be rigged whereas he himself in his 2008 campaign was talking about elections rigging, not to mention numerous other presidential candidates and other politicians have expressed concerns about fraud and rigging in elections.

Jay Z and Beyoncé, among other scums. What to say about them. They are scums. Hillary said Trump is evil for uses lewd language. But she invites Jay Z and Beyoncé, who are the epitome of cultural degradation to perform at her rallies. And oh that reminds me, Michelle Obama even considers Beyoncé to be a role model for her daughters. And they say Trump is bad because he can not be a role model for the kids. Such hypocrites!

See the contrast between people who helped Trump and those who helped Hillary? Go through all the links in this article, then dig the Internet. There’s a lot more.

And then, my friends, decide which side looks righteous.

Quality Over Quantity

Reading ten good books fives times is better than reading fifty mediocre books once. Who hasn’t heard such tune of quality-over-quantity?

I’m realizing something different now. I have recently had an epiphany.

In this age of information overload and short attention span, reading ten good books five times is better than reading even fifty good books once.

Every time one reads a good book again one learns something new out of it. (If you haven’t read a good book more than once, you really should to fully understand this.) One would imbibe and retain more wisdom by reading a good book multiple times than by reading it just once. If it was to be followed up by a constant stream of new material, even good material, good luck with retaining any of it.

Knowledge or wisdom derived by reading something once is hard to retain. Hence, one who has read ten good books five times would have more practical knowledge and wisdom than the one who has read fifty good books but once.

By extension, the same applies to watching films, or traveling places, or pretty much any self enhancing experience.

Take traveling for example. By visiting a great place multiple times one creates a bond with the place, the people; understands the local culture, the language; becomes aware of their ways, their fears, their strengths. It is then that one can be said to have fully experienced the place.

It is not possible to fully experience a place, or create a bond with it, in a single visit. Even if it is a great place. The bond created in the aforedescribed way is what soothes the soul of a traveler. Mere traveling – without  creating the bond – is rambling. Hence, one who has visited ten places multiple times in life is better traveled than the one who has traveled great places through the entire world. If one hasn’t created the bond, one has just rambled.

Apply this to any self enhancing experience. The same phenomenon exists.

In this age, we have abundance of experiences, which is a good thing. Except that it has crippled us of fully experiencing anything.

I hope more people realize this.

 

Dummy’s Guide To Persuading Hillary Supporters To Vote For Trump

In this post I’ll talk about how to talk to Hillary Clinton supporters to influence them to change their mind to vote for Donald Trump. I am calling it Dummy’s Guide for even though Trump supporters are on average smarter than Hillary supporters (in fact, the smartest people I know are on Trump’s side), when it comes to interacting with people on Hillary’s side many of them are taking what in my opinion is the fatal approach from persuasion standpoint. I will talk about it in a bit.

Note that by this time majority of both Trump and Clinton supporters have made up their mind about which candidate they support, and nothing coming out of either side is going to sway their support. So you are looking to influence the tiny minority of people who are not yet firmly decided and are tilting towards Hillary due to mass brainwashing by the mainstream media campaigning for Crooked Hillary. But do not get discouraged. Every single vote for Trump is important.

Hillary supporters may be brainwashed, ignorant, media zombies, but do not make a mistake of calling them that on their face. That is the fatal approach. When you are trying to persuade someone of something, insulting them is the last thing you want to do. Telling Hillary supporters that they are brainwashed implies that they have a weak mind, which feels like insult and they will never change their mind after that. Calling them stupid is downright insulting, you don’t want to do that.

Instead be Socratic. Here’s how you go about it: Do not disagree with their position, but act like you yourself are unsure of which side is better. If you declare at the onset that you are a Trump supporter it will trigger their defense mechanisms and they will close their mind to anything you say next. Do not tell them that you are on the side of Trump; pretend that you are having a neutral discussion and ask them questions and counter questions that bring out their illogic and ignorance, if only to themselves.

Your aim is not to win an argument with them. Or for them to admit to you that they were wrong and change their mind in front of you. Your aim is just to make them question themselves about their beliefs by subtly helping them with logic and facts. Subtlety is the key. If you come off as aggressive, you have failed before you have started. At all times you have to show that you are neutral and that you are looking at the situation from both sides. You might also have to agree (or pretend to agree) with them from time to time. Agree, and after some time question their stance. Remember, they don’t have to change their mind right now. You just plant the seeds in their mind and some people would change their mind before the election day.

Below are some of the points Hillary supporters use to disqualify Trump from presidency, followed by my tips on how one can address each of the points.

TRUMP IS RACIST!

Ask them why they think Trump is racist.

They will say Trump called for banning Muslims from entering America. Ask them if Islam (religion of Muslims) is a race or a religion. Obviously, it is a religion. So Trump is not racist. As for banning them from entering America, point out that Trump initially asked for temporary ban on Muslims coming from terrorism-infected countries until proper vetting mechanisms were devised.

They will say Trump called all Mexicans rapists and criminals. Ask them if Mexico is a race or a country. Obviously, it is a country. So Trump is not racist. As for calling Mexicans rapists, point out that Trump called illegal Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals, not all of them.

Ask them again if they can point out any racist remark Trump has made. It either involves Islam (which is religion) or Mexico (which is country). They can’t cite a real racist remark made by Trump, because he has never made any.

TRUMP IS MISOGYNIST!

Ask them why they think Trump is misogynist.

They might say, because Trump has insulted women by calling them fat, slobs, pigs etc. Now this one is tricky, because he indeed has called women names. But there is a logical explanation for it, which is this: Those women were contestants of a beauty contest, which means they had signed up to be objectified. When a woman is in a contest where she is going to be judged solely by her beauty, commenting on her beauty is not misogynistic. As an entertainer, Trump was doing his job. But that is a logical explanation, and you don’t want to counter this point by logic. It won’t work.

Hit it in a way that works. Start by asking them what counts more, words or actions. Get them to admit that actions count more than words. Then ask them if they have heard the tape on which Hillary is laughing about helping a pedophile get away with raping a 12-year-old girl. Ask them if they know Bill Clinton’s rape victims and how Hillary has silenced them. Ask them if Trump’s words (which he spoke as entertainer) make him a bigger misogynist than Hillary whose terrible actions destroyed some women’s lives.

TRUMP CAN’T BE ROLE MODEL TO KIDS!

Ask them if they know who the role models of their kids are. If they don’t have kids of their own, ask them whom do most kids see as their role models. If they are honest to themselves, they will know that most kids have their role models from TV – mostly Hollywood celebrities and pop stars. Then ask them why they think that is the case.

By questioning them make them realize the fact that kids choose their role models from the personalities they are exposed to frequently – which is people they see on TV. Popular role models are the likes of Miley Cyrus, Beyonce, Jay Z, etc. Then ask them if they find it troubling that kids are seeing these TV personalities who are destroying their culture as role models, and if they have taken any steps to avoid their kids’ exposure to these celebrities who impress all the wrong things on kids’ minds.

Close by saying that you don’t think it matters if Trump is role model material, because kids won’t be watching Trump on TV day in and day out. And even if they do see him as president on TV, Trump won’t be behaving in ways that put bad impressions on kids’ minds. On the other hand, the kids are already being exposed to the all the bad language and much worse images on TV every day (much worse than those they disqualify Trump as role model for). And what is worse, they are already picking their role models from the degenerate celebrities on TV.

Ask them if they have never used cuss words. And if they have, ask them if that disqualifies them from being role models to their own kids.

TRUMP IS HITLER!

Ask them why they think Trump is Hitler.

Ask them if they know that Hillary Clinton called half of Trump supporters – which is millions of Americans – deplorables. Tell them Hitler hated German citizens. Draw a parallel by showing that Hillary hates Americans. Isn’t that more like Hitler? Ask them if they can cite any instance where Trump has attacked ordinary American citizens.

TRUMP IS A DICTATOR!

Ask them why they think Trump is a dictator.

They might say, because Trump is not heeding their party leaders, and not taking advice from people who tell him to tone down his rhetoric. Ask them the meaning of dictator, then ask them how disagreeing with people on how to run his own campaign make him dictator. Isn’t it like if you refuse someone’s advice on how to live your life, they would call you a dictator!?

They might say, because Trump threatened to put Hillary in jail if he is elected (during the 2nd presidential debate). Ask them if they are saying it because they have read headlines calling Trump dictator for making that statement, then tell them how he was misquoted by the media. Trump said during the debate that if he is elected president he will ask his attorney general to appoint a special prosecutor to look into Hillary’s situation. Isn’t that a legal process to follow for criminal investigation? And that is certainly different from saying “I will put you in jail.”

TRUMP SEXUALLY ASSAULTED WOMEN!

This argument comes from Trump’s infamous “pussygrab” tape and the emergence of several women accusing Trump of sexual misbehavior 15-20-30 years ago! On the tape Trump is heard saying that if you are rich then women let you do anything. He says the words “they let you”.

First ask them what is the meaning of assault. Then ask them if a woman lets you do something how is that an assault. They might say, just because they let Trump do it doesn’t mean they were happy about it. Ask them if they are not making assumptions.

Avoid temptation to call them out on their ignorance of the nature of women. That would be deeply insulting to them, and thus will not help the cause.

When they point to the several women coming out accusing Trump of sexual misbehavior, ask them why they think all these women are coming out a few weeks before the election. Ask them if they know about WikiLeaks releasing hacked emails from DNC that are exposing Hillary’s corruption, and ask them what they make of the release of Trump tape on the exact same day that WikiLeaks released emails exposing Hillary. Point out to them that for nearly every WikiLeaks dump there is a woman accuser coming out against Trump and the media is hardly covering WikiLeaks. Ask them why would it be so?

TRUMP KISSED WOMEN WITHOUT PERMISSION!

Smile and ask them if they have managed to kiss any woman with permission. The idea is so ridiculous! If you are talking to a woman, ask her if you can kiss her and when she tells you to shut up, well, your point is made.

Avoid temptation to call them out on their inexperience with women.

TRUMP SAID “PUSSY”!

Ask them if they know what is going on in Germany (and Europe) after mass immigration from Syria. Get them to acknowledge that Europe has become a hellhole with terror attacks, rapes and sexual assaults by the Islamist migrants become almost daily occurrence.

Ask them who do they think would protect them and their families better from the two candidates. 1) Donald Trump, who is against mass immigration from terror-infected Islamist countries or 2) Hillary Clinton whose dream is open boarders. Ask them if it is wise to not elect Trump who is clearly the better bet for protection from terrorism, just because he says the word pussy?

Ask them if they have never said the word pussy themselves. And if they have, does it makes them bad human beings regardless of all of their good traits.

TRUMP IS UNHINGED, CAN’T BE TRUSTED WITH NUCLEAR CODES!

Ask them what makes them think Trump is unhinged. Is it Trump’s rhetoric? His insults of his opponents? If so, point to them that Trump is not a seasoned politician so he doesn’t talk like one. Moreover, he has been a reality TV star for years, so his mannerisms are different from those of politicians’. Does that make him unhinged? If so, how is he so successful in multiple fields and multiple businesses?

When you talk about his success as a businessman, they might point to his 5-6 bankruptcies to showcase his failures. Tell them that Trump has over 500 successful business entities to his name. If a businessman starts 500 ventures, and 5 of those fail, how is that a bad track-record?

Ask them if they have heard that as of this month (October 2016), Obama administration has declared cyber-attack on Russia based on Hillary’s unsubstantiated claim that Russia is providing DNC’s hacked emails to WikiLeaks in an attempt to influence the US election.  1) There is no proof that Russia is behind the hack. 2) This could aggravate Putin and could lead to WWIII involving nuclear. Ask them if that seems more like actions of the unhinged.

TRUMP PRAISES PUTIN!

Ask them this: Who do you think Putin would work better with. 1) Someone who says America and Russia has a common goal of defeating ISIS and that we can work together to achieve that, or 2) Someone who continually badmouths Russia and Putin and accuses Putin, without evidence, of influencing the US elections? The goal is to make them realize that Putin can actually be a good ally to America against terrorism.

There are countless other points they would bring out against Trump, but you get the drift.

Just remember to be polite, remain calm and don’t try to win over them.

Be as informed about both the sides as you can be. Follow people like Mike Cernovich, Paul Joseph Watson and Stefan Molyneux to keep up to date on the events and analysis.

Take America back, and make it great again!

Donald Trump – A Case For Laymen

Donald Trump is one man running not only against the corrupt political establishment, but against Google, Twitter, Facebook et al (companies sharing agenda with the power-hungry globalist elites, and blatantly, even illegally, censoring Trump’s attempts to connect with people), entire mainstream news media, and his own party leaders.

People who carry bad opinion of Trump get all their information form the mainstream media. In other words, they are thoroughly misinformed.

Hillary Clinton is the epitome of corruption.

How many people know about…

  • Hillary’s email scandals
  • Cover-ups of her poor health and brain damage
  • Her foundation’s pay-to-play scandal
  • Her lies about Benghazi
  • Her lies about landing “under sniper fire” in Bosnia (proven on video tapes)
  • Her shady ties with Wall Street
  • Her taking huge donations from Saudi leaders, the most misogynistic people in the world
  • Her silencing of Bill Clinton’s rape victims
  • Her helping a pedophile get away with raping a 12-year-old girl and later laughing about it (it’s on tape)

The list can go on.

Not only that, she has stolen the party nomination from Bernie Sanders. This was also proven through WikiLeaks release of hacked emails from her party, following which Democratic party chair resigned. Hillary Clinton become a presidential nominee by committing election fraud.

The mainstream media never highlights all that. But everyone would know that Trump called some woman fat when he was a reality TV star or passed some lewd remarks about women 11 years ago (like many normal men do in their man-to-man talks), and therefore he is misogynist. That’s media misinforming the public.

They all have common agenda.

When the entire establishment and all media is against one man, you know that man is your man. No more needs to be said.

It remains to be seen if on November 8 America celebrates its ascend to greatness, or free-fall to becoming another Germany, i.e. a hellhole filled with literal rapists and terrorists from the Middle East. After all Crooked Hillary is – by her own admission in a recent interview – a fan of Angela Merkel who destroyed her nation with her liberal immigration policies.

This election is the election of a lifetime for Americans. And Donald Trump is their last chance to save the Western Civilization. Or else, another Europe is waiting to happen.

Hillary’s Twitter Mole

It looks like either Hillary Clinton’s campaign staff is largely stupid like herself, or there is a mole on her team who has access to her official twitter account @HillaryClinton. For the sake of fun would assume the latter and present the work of her Twitter Mole.

Have fun!

The Mole came to my notice with the above tweet. I was taken aback by this tweet from Hillary which is positively advertising Trump. I have written a detailed post about it.

Hillary addresses Trump as President. What is worse is the image which appears in the tweet which looks like a file titled: President Donald J. Trump. Perfect for putting the idea of Donald J. Trump as president in people’s minds.

The first three words of this tweet, especially the way they are placed, couldn’t have done more to impress Trump as president on the people’ minds. Persuasion experts would say what comes in the next line matters not much.

The Mole tell is not in the words but the image that accompanies this tweet which reads: PRESIDENT TRUMP APPOINTS THIRD SUPREME COURT JUSTICE.

PRESIDENT TRUMP. Huge persuasion fail again.

The tweet is accompanied by a video in which Trump, quite humorously and effectively in my view, explains away the controversy around Star of David. Looks like the Mole is trying to save Trump the trouble by spreading his explanation to Hillary’s followers. Moreover, the title of the video reads: A MESSAGE FROM YOUR POSSIBLE NEXT PRESIDENT.

Try finding a Trump tweet or quote mentioning Hillary Clinton as a possible next president in such clear terms.

What is wrong in that idea?! After seeing this tweet one can’t help but wonder if Hillary Clinton is campaigning for Trump. Oh, I forgot, the Mole is!

In the words of Scott Adams: “Couldn’t be happier”? The mole is on fire!

This is probably the best work of the Mole. The tweet comes from Hillary right when the concerns about her mental (and physical) health have reached the mainstream media and the videos showing her bizarre behavior (like this one) are going viral on social media. It is worse than confirmation bias – herself practically admitting to the mental illness! That’s how it looks persuasion-wise.

This tweet comes at a time when Donald Trump has switched from insults and name-calling to giving policy speeches while Hillary Clinton has taken to fear-mongering and branding Trump as dangerous and racist. Could the timing of the tweet be more wrong?

I am amazed at the Mole’s ability to get away with tweeting whatever he wants. Wow, just WOW!

The above tweet, of course, is not the standalone tweet. It is quoting some tweet which reads: “Trump said they didn’t discuss payment. Now EPN directly saying they did, and he said they’re not paying.” EPN is for Enrique Peña Nieto, President of Mexico. Does this prove Trump was lying? Hell no! EPN could be lying, too. And anyway, half the people won’t even read the quoted tweet. A+ for highlighting Trump’s virtue and reminding the American people that Trump will never lie to them.

And the image in the tweet says: Vote 2016. Register to vote blah blah.. The Mole is effectively telling people to register and vote for Donald Trump.

“Donald Trump could actually be our next president.” You bet, Hillary Clinton! Persuasion experts would say when there are two lines, the first line would have much stronger impact on people’s minds. What comes after won’t register as well as the first line. After reading the tweet, people who earlier would have been unsure about Trump would also start believing in him. Way to go, Mole!

This tweets drops while hashtags like #HillarysHealth are trending on twitter, more fiercely than ever after her coughing fit at Cleveland, Ohio speech. A candidate who can barely stand her infamous stool talks about rock solidness.

She collapsed for real at 9/11 memorial service.

Hillary Clinton should be staying away from the words like “corruption”, “emails”, “delete”, “health” etc. which are strongly associated with her own image, and stick to the words like “racist” (what else?) which she has associated Trump with with some success. One is reading this tweet alongside Hillary Clinton’s face. Sure!

Panic-reacting to the backlash about Clinton calling half of Trump’s supporters “Basket of Deplorables” her campaign issued a statement along with the tweet from Hillary. Whose campaign is she talking about when she said “this campaign”? Her own I guess. That’s what it reads like.

The tweet is a Donald Trump quote directed at Hillary Clinton. And guess what, no one can disagree with what he says. Hillary called millions of Americans “Basket of Deplorables” just a few days prior to this tweet. Does not matter what is in the video in the tweet.

Here she is asking people to imagine Donald Trump in the role of president. People will obey the Mole!

This is a GIF of a moment from the 1st presidential debate. When Donald Trump attacked her on bad temperament and said that he has a winning temperament, Hillary Clinton convulsed. She looks weird there. It’s a material someone else would post to mock Hillary. But here it comes, from her own account. Well done, Mole!

Wow again! Mike Pence is getting praises from all over for coming out strong and victorious in his first debate with Hillary’s running mate Tim Kaine. Kaine on the other hand is facing criticisms for his poor performance in the debate. So of course Trump has picked a great running mate. By Hillary’s own assertion then, he will great at making hard decisions as president!

“The guide to help you make your choice for president”, says the tweet with a link to the article titled How to Choose Between the Most Corrupt, Least Popular Candidates of All Time. So, Hillary is basically admitting that she is corrupt and unpopular. She implying the same thing about Trump is irrelevant as there is nothing unusual about both candidates speaking ill of their opponent.

GO, MOLE, GO!

I will keep adding to this collection if the Mole keeps firing, which I am sure he will. Added 12 more tweets from Hillary’s Twitter Mole since this post’s original publication.

Courtesy Scott Adams (@ScottAdamsSays) who called my attention to the Mole. Follow him on Twitter or read his blog where currently he is providing excellent commentary and analysis of Trump’s and Clinton’s strategies.
