Trump once gain does something stupid and is called out, but are the people still dumb?

Fake News. We love it, we fall victim to it and we hate it. It's an issue that we must come to grips with before we end up like Germany 1933. Fake News exists and we must be mindful of it. The attack on Chuck Jones, a United Steel Workers local union president, on Twitter by Trump is in fact real news. Since everyone has an opinion and a Twitter handle - the masses are speaking out. If I had a magic wand, I would force every red state voter and misguided union member who voted for Trump to read Chuck's Op Ed. It's simple and to the point, an easy read. It is his side of the story. But I know that some people won't read it because it's long or they heard that the communist at UCOMM put it up on their blog. Plus there is no imagery of busty women in Chuck's Op Ed or fart jokes in the Google ads. It's not sexy enough, the truth is boring. Trump is not. He is an entertainer. So I pulled this excerpt from Chuck's piece:
 
"What I can't abide, however, is a president who misleads workers, who gives them false hope. We're not asking for anything besides opportunity, for jobs that let people provide for their families. These plants are profitable, and the workers produced a good-quality product. Because of corporate greed, though, company leaders are racing to the bottom, to find places where they can pay the least. It's a system that exploits everyone."
 

Across this great nation, good people are speaking up. We were not in the room when Chuck had to tell the members that their jobs were going to Mexico. We didn't have to take the midnight phone calls and comfort grown men weeping.   The Presidency used to be a noble office, now it's a fool's throne. What is happening in Indianapolis is nothing new. Organized labor has been fighting corporate greed and working to save good jobs for decades. Never has a "President" done something so stupid, but the people are still dumb and they love him. It's going to have to take a bunch more Chucks, Carriers and tweets for the nation to finally wake up. I hope it won't be too late, but I am getting prepared. Are you?
