Is Donald Trump That "Skillful and Genius"?

 I found a link to this blog post referenced in a comment by JB at Taxicab Depressions


Donald Trump’s Latest Amygdala Hijack



First, his statement
“She gets out and she starts asking me all sorts of ridiculous questions,” Trump said in a CNN interview. “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever. In my opinion, she was off base.”
On Saturday morning, Trump’s campaign released a statement claiming he said “whatever,” as opposed to “wherever,” and was referring to Kelly’s nose.
I have to think this was planned, and if so, it was brilliant. He released a deniable dogwhistle, triggered the SJW’s, and then when they rose to take the bait, he labeled them “deviant,” thereby out-grouping them as socially inferior – for getting triggered over nothing.
Trump’s campaign is almost like a giant cognitive training session trying to fix the nation’s SJWs. Trump triggers them, makes them feel inferior for getting triggered so they will experience aversive stimulus, then he repeats it. 

Eventually, if repeated often enough, this would train the triggerable – that getting triggered, and letting it be known they were triggered, will only elicit aversive stimulus and humiliation, and thus the path of least aversive stimulus is to keep their mouths shut. Over time they would actually build amygdala suppression pathways designed to suppress the urge to get triggered.
