I’m kind of surprised I haven’t seen anyone else discuss this. Because I’m not 100% convinced “The Donald” is *actually* running for president.
Let’s be clear- if he IS running for president- he’s either:
a) lost his mind over the past years or
b) taken politics to the extreme- choosing to pander to an underserved base of seething frustration and hate in this nation.
Which brings to my point. Many of the Donalds positions seem at odds with what they were in the past (he has for example, not that long ago, supported both “dreamers” and Clinton, as well as supporting a substantial, one time tax on the wealthy.) So his current persona and campaign feels deeply at odds with past versions of the Donald.
So I do question- is this just an elaborate play by one of the vainest men in America for the ultimate reality show? (all the better [for him] if he does pull it off and The White House becomes the ultimage stage. Far fetched? Maybe. Though with what I have seen of Trump over the years, and more importantly, heard from friends in the upper echelon of the NY social circuit (read: well heeled and heavily connected artist or fixer types… and drug suppliers to the elite I’ll admit)
