I’m about to describe a US President. See if you can figure out which one I’m talking about.
- He’s been a Democrat for most of his life.
- He’s a near-pathological liar, lying in public appearances regularly, so much so that his staff is constantly having to embarrassingly explain away his lies and engage in damage control.
- He’s been accused of sexual assault by numerous women.
- He’s been accused of full-on rape by at least one woman who has no political or financial motivation to do so.
- He has a long track record of being a player and repeatedly cheating on his wife.
- He has spent much of his marriage living apart from his wife.
- His wife clearly despises him, but remains with him and puts up with him because of her own money, image and/or power.
- He utterly hates free speech and has often complained about how his opposition shouldn’t be afforded the free speech he enjoys.
- He doesn’t really have an ideological basis even though he pretends to, and as such, he has often made deals with his opposing party members, often to the fury and/or confusion of his own supporters.
- He repeatedly took credit for a booming stock market when he pretty much had personally nothing to do with it.
- He loves speaking in front of large crowds of enthusiastic supporters and absolutely basks in the limelight. It’s one of the primary reasons he became president.
- He bombed countries, including civilians, without checking with Congress or the United Nations, even though he had vociferously blamed former presidents for doing exactly that.
- He is hugely popular with a vocally strong contingent of voters who love him absolutely, regardless of all his obvious wrongdoings, and would vote to bring him back as president if they could.
Well? Who am I talking about?
It’s a trick question. I’m talking about Bill Clinton… and I’m talking about Donald Trump!
It hit me one day that Clinton and Trump are pretty much the same person in many ways. Isn’t that hilarious?
I’ll leave you with this quote from Micheal Graham of CBS News:
Members of the media often ask how President Trump was able to get past his issues regarding his treatment of women, how voters were able to get past truly disturbing actions and accusations and find a way to support him.
No need to wonder. Just go find Bill Clinton supporters over the age of 40 and ask them.
