If I remember correctly, Brad Parscale was one of those people who came out of nowhere, but latched on to Trump, who likes to hire servile, loyal people.

It's easy to say, okay, no big deal, after all, Trump's father was already the one to build up the wealth, and now Trump has a scattering of children by his wives, and some will keep running with his money, as they've been brought up to seek the spotlight.

But if you look at it from another angle, it's a little chilling. We have had dynasties of a sort, like the Kennedy and Bush families, but they weren't so pushy as to announce themselves in advance - and, of course, they had some acquaintance with politics beforehand. Add into mix Trump's hints that maybe we should forgo the next election, or that he should hold the presidency beyond two terms. It starts to convey the idea of a monarchy - an idea that would have horrified the founders - or the promises of the Third Reich.

Sounds like a dictatorship.

But we all know that's what this maniac sees himself as.

All power and unquestioning loyalty to the dear leader is what he wants.

Seig Heil!

Uh-Oh.... The ol' "Trump is Hitler" card.

America will continue to elect its leaders. If the Democrats insist on electing a contingent of antisocial misfits like they did in 2018, then the statewide and national elected leaders will forever remain Republican.

I didn't say Trump was Hitler but there are certain parallels in the power and loyalty he demands.

He's a campaign manager.

IOW, a PR guy.

I'm not a bit worried. What Trump might like (and for sure, he would love it) is not the same thing as what will happen.

Most people hiring anybody generally prefer that whom they are paying will be loyal to them. The concept is called a fiduciary relationship. You should acquaint yourself with it before you hire anyone in the future.


Ol' Brad was just doing for his employer, what you're doing for yours by posting this.


Just sayin'

None of the kids (not even Ivanka) have the charisma of the Orange God himself. Don Jr had a rally in Kentucky (?) and only a couple hundred people came.

Trump lovers love Trump and no one else. Whatever tangential loyalty the kiddies might get will evaporate quickly.

Cool, they could even have a TV reality show. Call it Dork Dynasty.
