We can be both amazed and disheartened when POSs, especially intellectually Inferior, poisionous, vile, immoral, corrupt and just plain stupid ignoramuses can rise to the top of political leadership because of what it says about a large portion of voting citizens. He represents a good many of us, at a minimum our selfish, self destructive desires that motivate many of us,reminds me that i may still have a Tandy box upstairs and probably a monitor i used with it too. There's one walk-in closet upstairs with stuff in the back that I still haven't culled out.
Ah the days of innocence, when "Donald Trump" was some jerk in NYC who used to make what eventually became "Page Six" of the NY Post now and then, with his latest arm candy wife in tow.
Will never understand how we came to where we were in 2015-2016. It's like trying to figure out which butterfly was responsible for having launched some breeze that ended up as a Gulf hurricane. It's too easy to say it was a backlash against Obama, or even the natural culmination of years of both parties going down a self-serving path.
By time we could ever get enough perspective on Trump's weird appeal to authoritarian followers, this planet would have already have shrugged off the human species as ill suited to live on whatever was left of the place.
But those authoritarian followers have been and are a part of our ongoing problems, regardless of where the swarm of butterflies originated that brought us to the 2016 elections, and regardless of the fact that his GOP-affiliated political support is waning. There are others like Trump in the wings, and they may not be as charismatic but they're politically more savvy, and far less burdened by baggage like Trump's malleability, susceptibility to flattery and his vulnerability as a failed businessman.
