Donald Trump struts and preens like the dictators that he admires, but in reality he’s a cartoon strongman who is easily manipulated by genuine authoritarians like Russian President Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-un the leader of North Korea and Turkish President Recep Erdogan.
Asked in a recent Post-ABC News poll whether Trump is a strong leader, only 44 percent said yes; 54 percent said no. Americans aren’t fooled by Trump’s act, we recognize him as an insecure preening orange peacock who is totally out of his element in the White House.
The only ones fooled by Trump’s bravado are white evangelicals who’ve been prepared to be brainwashed by the stable genius by preening televangelists who are full of sound and fury signifying nothing.
The buffoon-in-chief may think that his bullying manner and offensive tweets display his machismo, leadership and authority, but the electorate and the world at large perceive them as the desperate cries for attention of an impotent little man.
Like a tone-deaf symphony conductor with freakishly small hands, Trump is aesthetically and materially unsuited for his job.
With real dictators like Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping undermining democracies all over the world, America need a real strong leader now more than ever. Let’s throw out the orange weakling out of office, and replace him with a real leader like any of the leading Democratic presidential candidates.
