For those who see their lives as a failure a person like the Donald is a God send. The primitive human ego hates change and it won’t tolerate blame. The Donald gives them the“other,” those weak liberals in Washington who prop up illegals that steal your jobs and tax money, to blame and relieves them of personal responsibility when he says, not to worry folks I can do it all. Trust me I know everything.

Indeed, there is a reason some people are so easily conned by folks like Trum. They desperately want to be deluded. It’s why Rush Limbaugh and Fox News are so darn popular. They reassure the nation’s misfits that they are not wrong. They are in fact the salt of the earth.
