The Necessity of The Donald

There is no doubt that Trump is one of the more polarizing figures on the American political scene today (apart from the disastrous Obama). Some regard him as a bloviating ignoramus, others consider him a gust of fresh air in the stale and canting fug of current American politics. Some condemn him as a tyrant, others laud him as a long-overdue savior. Some dismiss him as a vulgar boor, an affront to the nice sensibilities of a soigné educated class, others regard him as a straight shooter, even if he often fires from the hip, or lip. Some see him as beneath contempt, others as above reproach. You love him or you hate him, but you cannot be indifferent to his larger-than-life presence.
