Donald Trump, the GOP’s Obama
By ROGER MADON
Donald Trump is the Republican version of President Obama: brash, mocking, divisive, mean spirited, inexperienced and when it comes to foreign affairs fundamentally naïf.
With Donald Trump having entered the presidential campaign it probably hasn’t occurred to the American people that a good part of the reason that Trump’s campaign has taken off like a rocket is that the city in which he lives and works is the media capital of the U.S. Any New Yorker knows that when Donald Trump builds a building in New York City it will have his named blazoned all over it. Every New Yorker knows that when Donald Trump gets into a tangle with somebody in the city, whether another builder, or a TV personality or a wife or a former wife his mug will be all over the evening cable and TV news outlets. And finally every New Yorker knows that Donald Trump is a gargantuan self-promoter and self-aggrandizer.
The Republican elite is aghast that another empty suit is now capturing the hearts and minds of those on the right who actually believe that this political prankster can convince the American people that he can be a president of the U.S. Well let’s put it this way, I will take ABO, Anybody but Obama, Trump included, as long as he or she is not a socialist, such as the current resident in the White House.
