Q: How is Trump offering $5 million to Obama's favorite charity promoting himself and making him money?<quoted text>How is Trump offering $5 million to Obama's favorite charity promoting himself and making him money? He doesn't need to do either. You are hopeless if you think all that is wrong with the Obama presidency is that angry white males can't tolerate a racially diverse man in the White House.
White males voted Obama into the White House. Angry males say he has failed their expectations and the country can't afford four more years of failure, regardless of the presidents' race.
A: The offer certainly got media attention, which is free publicity.
White males are increasingly a minority in the U.S., which I believe to be the cause of their anger (as in how dare one of us not be in charge?). While failed presidency is the fundamental extremist GOP talking point, it is a pure propaganda campaign. Saying so repeatedly makes a lot of people, perhaps so inclined for other reasons, to want to fire Obama even though he has turned the economy around and his rival wants to return to policies that created the bad economy.
If you are a college student I would expect you to have an inquiring mind and not fall victim to empty rhetoric or propaganda campaigns. Many college students find libertarian political philosophy attractive for idealistic reasons, which I can understand better even though its economic philosophy is extremely conservative. That, plus legal pot can seem pretty attractive. The problem is floating grandma out on an iceberg whe she gets too old to fend for herself.
