Peggy Wallace Kennedy has a new book coming out about her father. She sees a lot of him in Donald Trump.

“The two greatest motivators at (Dad’s) rallies were fear and hate. There was no policy solution, just white middle-class anger.”

Yes, white middle class Americans are very angry that our elected officials have ignored the crisis at the border for so long. And Trump (the adult in the room) is responding to their frustration by working to secure the border. Do you have a problem with that? Do you think we should be the only nation in the world to have an open border policy?

Perhaps the white middle class has reasons to be angry. They still pay the bills, in large part.

Fear and have gets his followers pumped up.

And whether the middle class are the ones who show up at his rallies is highly questionable.

So all this country's problems are related to the border and immigration? Rather than blame the poor and immigrants for your lot in life, you could take a look at the very wealthy and large corporations? Maybe they have you questioning everyone other than them.

For her to call him "daddy" is all that needs to be known. She's got mental issues.

This book isn't about parties. It's about a shared hatred, as observed first hand by someone who would know better than most.
