He's sane

I don't talk about this much but Trump reminds me of a my father. My father was hard working, completely uneducated, could be gruffly charming and had a forceful personality.

He was also a dedicated racist--whose "evolvement" on race consisted of saying things like There's blacks and then there's finger-poppin n*ggers" He used to tell my sister and myself there "weren't any real men left"--he considered himself, his type, the last of the "real men". He had no use for anyone who struggled in poverty or failed to accumulate some sort of wealth "they ain't got nothin" was one of his favorite insults. He held a grudge until he felt he was in control, or had power or whatever person or institution insulted him (he hated cops and Unions equally--long story, but he broke laws when it suited him)

While he of course failed to garner anything like the wealth of that asshole Trump, he worked hard enough in his life to break 6 figures.

I used to wonder what was wrong with him--a narcissist? Sure. A bully? Yup. Yet he moved through the world successful by American metrics, although I have never figured out how one man could cause so much damage to other people. Simply put He was the ultimate a product of a racist and sexist patriarchy--just as Trump is.
