If one wonders how someone like Hitler came to power, all you have to do is compare the message and sentiment of Trump. The fear of and the faulting of the other, screamed at high pitch to a people who feel afraid and desperate.
I have always been of the opinion that all politicians who rise to high office are corrupt.
That is the nature of the beast and a two party system only exacerbates this. I feel the same of persons who rise to high power in private business. The odds of these people being clean are very low.
All this said -if Hillary is corrupt, give me corrupt. I will take corrupt any day over insane.
Can you present the facts to back up your insanity allegation aimed at Trump? I would appreciate hearing them. I have 3 foster children who were partially raised by their truly insane parents and trust me when I tell you they are nothing even close to the Trump's kids.....as much as I have seen thus far, those kids are er It working,well rounded adults- it's difficult to thing they are the products of an insane upbringing.
Off the top of my head, he threatens people who disagree with him, he thinks we can force Mexico to finance a wall along our southern border, wants to deport 11 million people which would require police state in this country, he is a casual racist and misogynist and his speech is rife with hate and fear mongering. The man is a bully and lives to belittle anyone who doesn't agree with him.
All these things make him an unpleasant person to be sure, but not insane. Its his reckless lust for attention at any cost that makes him truly dangerous. I don't know that he believes anything he says and I don't think that really matters. All politicians lie like they breathe. NO new taxes!! Hope and Change! Mission Accomplished!
But Trump thinks he can say anything, do anything. No thought to repercussions. Opposition of any kind enrages him. He cannot handle criticism without seeking swift revenge and on the world stage that is truly frightening. Lashing out seems to be a reflex beyond his control. I think that the man has some kind of psychological imbalance is obvious.
Our anger is drowning reason.
I don't know anything about his children aside from that they were born into extreme privilege, just like their father. However having insane parents doesn't assure insane offspring.
