EDIT: I just realized how ambiguous the title is so I'm going to take a second to specify that it's a crazy idea that I had about Donald Trump, (probably) not an actual crazy idea that Donald Trump came up with. ___ So I was just reading on another website about how Trump's former advisors have been talking about how the whole campaign started out as a ridiculous publicity stunt, that he'd planned on dropping out of when the polls showed that nobody was planning on voting for him, and that everything that's happened since has been a stupid accident. Spoiler: The guy on the other forum linked this video on the subject But then I realized – and replied there too – that what if the reason he's being so horrible about insulting American war heroes, and saying that we should just nuke everybody ... is that he's trying to play Ender's Game! He hates the people pushing him to xenophobic jihad against the Muslims and the Mexicans, and he's trying to make himself look as horrifyingly sociopathic as possible so that he can humiliate them into turning their backs on their beloved Final Solutions to the Muslim and Mexican Problems, but he hasn't realized that they're actually going to do all of the horrifying things that he only thinks he's pretending to tell them to do! It's the only thing that makes sense!!!!!
