 Pfft.  Only a liberal elitist would see something wrong with this.  At least he's not a murderer.

Meh, I am not scared of Trump anymore than I am of Clinton, both of them will have you executed with equal cold bloodedness if it suits their purpose. They are both Presidential material as it is now constituted and that is the problem.

Michelle Obama plagiarized Elizabeth Dole and a lot more.

So why is this a big deal ?

Well, just read through his latest statements on the direction US foreign policy would be headed under his leadership.

1. A clear return to isolationism

4. Pursing US economic interests first and putting other interests (political, ideals, human rights, etc.) down a notch
This is all kind of interesting and is going to leave a pretty big power vacuum in many regions. China will take the South China Sea,
Russia will start eyeing the Baltics and its other satellites, like Belarus and the Ukraine. The EU is going to have to remilitarise to match Russia rather than rely on the US.

I have to say that I agree with these positions (with just a little dash of number 1 and a pinch of number 2) and if these things happen so be it, I submit that we have done more damage with our nation building (CIA meddling closely followed by bombs and drone strikes) than good and perhaps the world would be a little better place without our "help" and lecturing.  Which is just another reason that I refuse to vote for either Trump or Clinton.

Secondly, I still can't help the feeling that these strong dictatorial macho type of leaders have some sort of instinctive bond with each other.
Erdogan, Putin, Trump, and possibly Xi Jinping, etc. Divvying the world up into their own little kingdoms and fiefdoms which they can screw over at whim.
I see a huge risk for human rights, freedom of speech, religion, etc. in favour of mob rule. And lord help us if these types get dissatisfied with what they have and start fighting each other.

Then we will all be toast. 

But what worries me most, idealist that I am, is that suddenly ideals have been eroded and benchmarked to their pragmatic value. Good to have if you have the luxury but something you can toss out when times get tough. Just think of the stance these authoritarian leaders (Putin, Trump, Erdogan, etc.) take on various issues:
Hispanics? Build a wall. Muslims? out with them. Refugees? back to the war zone. Journalists? put em in prison. Opposition? Just murder the bastards and be done with it. 

If that doesn't make you Trump supporters start to think, then our ideals are already toast.

You including Meliana in the "Trump" category?

For those who must see the ad in all its glory, here 'tis. Apparently the wonderful late Phil Hartman of SNL fame does a cameo—I think about 4-5 seconds in: 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dz7GRRvwCso

This version has much worse quality video but it does have the "proceeds donated to charity" add-on:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdY31mDsBmU

I chuckled at this bit from the Post article:

"From 1987 to 1991, Trump gave away $1.9 million of his money through the Donald J. Trump Foundation.

He gave $101,000 to veterans, according to a Post analysis of tax records from that time. 

He gave $26,000 to the homeless.

He gave $12, 450 to AIDS charities. 

He gave $4,250 to multiple-sclerosis research. 

The amount for those categories was $143,700 or nearly 8 percent of the total. 

Much of the rest went to charities tied to Trump's life: society galas, his high school, a foundation for indigent real estate brokers. The School of American Ballet, where Ivanka Trump studied from 1989 to 1991, got $16,750. 

A private school that educated Trump's son Eric got $40,000—more than the homeless and AIDS contributions combined."


The piece also reminds readers that at the beginning of Trump's campaign, Trump claimed that he'd donated $102 over the previous five years. Those donations large took the form of land-use agreements and free rounds of golf at Trump-owned courses. 

The more you learn about this man, the smaller he becomes.

Trump promised millions to charity. We found less than $10,000 over 7 years. - The Washington Post

“The game was just nailed to the shelf,” said George DiTomassi, who was president of Milton Bradley at the time. One problem, he said, was that customers were not told about Trump’s pledge to give proceeds to charity. “They felt perhaps this was going to be something that a millionaire would make some money on,” DiTomassi said.

The TV commercial for the product was changed. “Mr. Trump’s proceeds from Trump: The Game will be donated to charity,” a new voice-over said at the end.

It still didn’t work. The game tanked.
