Once again, this should be blindingly obvious to the chattering classes. President Trump has been a public figure for more than 30 years, and re reading "The Art of the Deal" was like watching the entire primary season and Presidential election campaign. His M.O. should be well known by now.
The fact the legacy media, chattering classes, professional politicians, bureaucrats and academics have not
caught on should be concerning. While the President may be using social media tools for obfuscation, it seems to me that the real issue in the American left is a willful blindness to anything or anyone who does not fit into the "Narrative", and an inability to look outside the bubble to check their assumptions. The "Narrative" has collided with reality, and the resulting train wreak is horrifying to look at, but still compels us to slow down and look anyway.....The battlespace right now seems to be between the current establishment "Narrative" and the counter narratives of MAGA, the Alt-Right, Alt-Tech and others which may be more reflective of reality, or seem to have more predictive power for the user.
Obfuscation is the willful obscuring of the intended meaning of communication, usually by making the message confusing, ambiguous, or difficult to understand. The obfuscation might be unintentional or intentional, and is accomplished with circumlocution, the use of jargon, and the use of an argot of little communicative value to outsiders.
