Trump: Master of Delusion

I’m not buying the Trump brand. America doesn’t need cheap ties and ugly buildings. Trump brand brings appeal to the 1980’s Izod wearing preppie in a Member’s Only jacket and then sort of got stuck there. His major retort to anyone that disagrees with him is that they are a “loser” or “failing.” It is a throwback to an era of excess, hedonism, and a time before the country-club was over-run by Mexicans. No amount of wish-upon-a-star is taking us back there again. No matter how “great” Donald thinks it was. Perhaps some of the GOP are upset that they have to say these things out in the open rather than wear a pointy white hat that hides their faces. The GOP is in a bit of a quandary itself having to mostly back Trump, but when the chips fall there will be more backwards two-stepping going on than at a country line dance in Texas. That is modern day politics: the art of being spineless but still try and hold your head up. The main exception will be Ted Cruz who sustained an ugly personal attack on his family by the Donald. The GOP attacks on Hillary somehow just keep missing the mark. One has to question if Trump even really wants the job at all or whether this was a publicity stunt gone awry.
