Sanders has traveled by bus and also by airline coach but he recently began using a Gulfstream jet charter too.
Trump flies on his own corporate aircraft.
Trump is a billionaire and he does seem self-obsessed.
Poster appeals to the populist perspective of Sanders and the greedy narcissistic perspective of Trump – but the implication that Sanders does not fly a private jet is no longer true. Truth means little in a good social media propaganda poster! (This was shared into my FB stream).
The person who created this is the unbiased[not] publisher of Trump Magazine.
Uses fear, assertions, transference, and a fierce, evil looking photo to make its point.
But this propaganda poster has way too much detail. Few people will read all the text. If reading takes more than 5 seconds to rouse your System 1 thinking, the poster’s message is probably dead-on-arrival.
These posters work because they convey what the poster wants to believe-if you believe it to be true, than it must be true! (Indeed! I linked to Snopes in a reply to the person who posted this and he replied that he would leave it up because he wanted this to be true!)
The message is parsed in seconds, generating an emotional, gut-level response and then a quick click on the Like or Share button, making for successful and effective propaganda campaign.
