What is Trump?

What is Trump? December 7, 2019

I found this in a comment thread here. The author is someone who goes by the nym “Discus is Shit.” I thought it was so good that it deserved a wider viewing.

Trump is a snowflake’s idea of strength and masculinity, an incel’s * idea of a playboy, a racist’s idea of white supremacy, a Christian extremist’s idea of being godly, a nationalist’s idea of patriotism, and an idiot’s idea of being a self-made millionaire. But perhaps worst of all, he’s a bully’s idea of how might-makes-right is “nature’s way” of how the world works. In the end, these bullies are more than willing to shut off whatever empathy they may have, and will use the power of the law to make the lives of everyone that isn’t white, rich, straight, and Christian complete and utter hell, and worse if possible. Why? Because they can.

* Incel: Short for “involuntary celibate.” A member of an online community of young men who are unable to attract women sexually. Discussions in incel forums are often characterized by resentment, misogyny, misanthropy, self-pity, self-loathing, racism, a sense of entitlement to sex, and the endorsement of violence against sexually active people.

In short, really ugly people…in many ways.
