Everybody has underestimated the Donald.....the very reasons we believe that will end the Trump presidential joy ride....are the VERY reasons that are propelling him to the leader of the GOP.
Ironically, it wasn't Trump who 'fired up the crazies'. It was Sen.John McCain who not only fired up- but gave birth to the crazies when he picked Sarah Palin as his running mate. Not that politics was ever normal before Palin, but since then- it really seems to have gone off the rails- big time.
I'm not sure if the crazies are eating up Trump or Trump eating up the crazies. Either way, we're all staying tuned in to see what the Donald will do next on this latest incarnation of a reality TV show.
He's manipulating this GOP primary for his own personal approval ratings. He's not acting like a politician...and that's the very reason why he's so far ahead of the GOP field. Make no mistake he IS acting .....in his own reality TV show - let's call it, 'So who wants to be president?'
Every time I see Trump in front of a microphone...I'm expecting him to rip his shirt off..ala Hulk Hogan- getting red faced as he raises his voice at some unimportant distracting slight.
His Bloviator has no decency or class...giving out personal phone numbers on live TV. He's got a lot of Joseph McCarthy and George Wallace running through his veins. So much for Reagan's Eleventh Commandment...thou shall not speak ill of any fellow Republican.
Being a rich businessman now toying with the idea of a third party run at the White House Donald is starting to look like Ross Perot. Especially when Perot ran splitting the republican vote that allowed a Clinton to win the race. Is history repeating itself...again...you'll be hearing about this comparison a lot when Jeb wins the GOP nomination.
A lot of people may believe Trump is a lot like Howard Beale, the reality TV nut case from the 1976 movie Network, who implored his crazies to their windows and stick your head out and scream at the top of your lungs...'I'm as MAD as HELL and I'm not going to take it anymore!!!'
Personally, I see the Donald as a cross between Robin Leach of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous and Chuck Barris from the Gong Show.
If you've never seen either of those shows you can Youtube them or just watch the latest Trump manipulation of the press on the evening news.
