Michael Scott, a warning?

I've been rewatching "The Office" (US version) and am struck by how much Michael Scott resembles Donald Trump in his pathological need to be loved, his preference for form over function, his inability to tolerate criticism, his profound ignorance. It really is worth a look.

Just think--ten years ago I was laughing at a guy like that.

1. BIG difference is Michael Scott is inherently a good guy.

Just totally clueless.

2. You're right

He's likable, and Trump, to quote a psychiatrist, is "profoundly evil." But do take a look--it's almost scary. And I suspect that there might be someone, somewhere, who finds Trump likable.
