Your not wrong and I get why you would vote for whose not a politician. But he doesnít have the maturity of a fully functioning adult either. Heís made the U.S look like a bunch of fools and considering how small the world has become we all need to work together.

Trump is brilliant when it comes to getting people worked up for the wrong reasons. Heís divided this country very well. And while he isnít a career politician heís using their playbook to do the same thing. Only faster.

Crafty is a good choice of words. Or shrewd. I think Trump has a kind of animal cunning, and a trait that sociopaths are said to have, of being able to figure out how to appeal to weaknesses to get around people.


However, I don't think it was very similar to Clinton. Clinton, though shrewd, additionally had genuine charm and real smarts.

In some ways,he was smart enough ( or maybe just cunning mixed in w/ luck) to know how to get elected, but not smart enough to ever have a lasting legacy other than a buffoon. Not sure how smart that is.

OK got tired of talking about CNN Nonsense. Has moved on today to call his fellow Americans cultists.
