JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: IS DONALD TRUMP THE LEADER AMERICA DESERVES? YES BUT NOT FOR THE REASONS YOU MIGHT EXPECT   Leave a comment

EXPANSION OF POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN BY IAN BROWN IN TORONTO’S GLOBE AND MAIL

Donald Trump is, indeed, the perfect fit as leader of contemporary America: a big-mouthed bore who never seriously thinks about anything and is always ready to communicate attitudes as though he came equipped with a megaphone for a mouth.

The youth cult is part and parcel of America, and Trump also fits there perfectly. He fluffs and dyes his pathetic patch of hair, growing it far longer than a man of his age should and combing it as though he believes he is still a teenager and the date is 1960. The total effect is rather like an exhibit in Madam Tussaud’s chamber of horrors.

Money is Trump’s only interest, which corresponds nicely with America’s only interest. And ditto Trump’s favorite hobby of pushing people around.

It all fits so perfectly.

Here is Mr. America for 2012, a deflated old tire of a man who just keeps pounding away by force of his sheer arrogance and greed.

He reminds me very much of what some of the late and most corrupt Roman emperors must have been like.

Surely, the perfect captain for a sinking ship.
