Why Trump Terrifies the Establishment

Remember “Bush Derangement Syndrome” when otherwise normal people become apoplectic at the very mention of George W. Bush or wore tee shirts with pictures of Bush photo-shopped to make him look moronic? Well, while a single robin may not portend spring I have nevertheless detected the first outcropping of its current manifestation. This is a truly bizarre analysis of a Donald Trump supporter in Dear Prudence, a four times a week advice column that appears in both the Washington Post and the on-line Slate. These are respectable, establishment outlets and let me confess that I am a devoted fan of the erudite and often funny author, Emily Yoffe. Obviously, there must be something about the Donald that makes otherwise sensible people deranged.

  • Dana Garcia

    My eyes roll involuntarily when lefties are shocked that Trump shows narcissistic tendencies, while the megalomaniac who currently occupies the White House is no problema.

      Sure as hell ain’t no Jeremy Corbyn!

      • tom_billesley

        Corbyn’s deputy is Tom Watson, so Her Majesty’s Most Loyal Opposition is a “Tom & Jerry” show.

  • Maurixio Garciasanchez

    Trump mentioned that he will spend part of his furtune on his campaign , now he should spend it all to buy votes .

    • Xavier

      Perhaps Hillary can sell him the ones she’s accumulated.
      At a profit, of course.

      • Maurixio Garciasanchez

        Sure that means more jobs until he run out of money .

  • The__Hammer

    If only you could trust him. This anti-illegal immigrant shtick is not what he was singing last time he ran for president.

  • Ed

    “…The unwashed are on the march. Trump speaks not for the silent majority; he is the champion of the silenced majority. This is truly terrifying for today’s establishment gatekeepers…”

    Exactly right

    Eeuww! – Artist paints portrait of Donald Trump with her own menstrual blood over his ‘sexist’ comments

    • Justin St.Denis

      It was INEVITABLE. Think about it.

      Originality, oddly, seems to be a more of a conservative thing.

  • Xavier

    Trump isn’t beholden to big money donors. That’s what’s terrifying.
