On Episode 68 of War Room: Impeachment, host Stephen K. Bannon and Jason Miller discuss how President Trump’s rhetoric is replete with subtext in a Jungian manner.
They point to a key moment in President Trump’s rally in Hershey, PA last night:
The radical left has taken over the Democratic party. Democrats are pushing for a socialist takeover of healthcare that would strip you of the doctor and coverage of your choice. We have 180 million people with private healthcare that love it. They’re going to take it away from you. I don’t think so. Crazy Elizabeth Warren, or as I affectionately call her, Pocahontas, her ridiculous plan would cost $52 trillion. That’s more money than we take in in 1 years, 2 years, 3 years, 4 years, 5 years, 6 years, about 7 years. That’s for one year. $52 trillion and you don’t have your doctor. She’s starting to crash again. I thought I knocked her down. I did that heavy, heavy Pocahontas deal. I give her credit. I thought she was left for. There were like just little embers, and then she rose and she became strong, but she opened that fresh mouth of hers and it stopped. It stopped. I don’t see her as a threat. I don’t think she makes it. I mean you don’t know. Crazy things are happening in the Democratic party. It used to be a sane party.
Bannon describes how “All of that has subtext. He’s Jungian in knowing archetypes and how to get to subtext.”
He continues: “His favorite book is Memories, Dreams, Reflection by Carl Jung. Every time he goes up there, it’s got punch underneath it because there’s subtext. When he goes after Fauxcahontas, he really knows her phoniness and the crazy idea she comes up with on economics.”
Miller also emphasizes President Trump’s subtext: “He laid out a very convincing case for reelection. A very convincing case for winning Pennsylvania again, and he went through in a very detailed, methodical way that here are all the success you’ve seen, here’s how your lives are improving, and he worked it in with a lot of fun, but there was definitely a lesson there.”
