C'mon, my post was tongue in cheek. After all, Franky posted the topic as The "Important" Issues.

Quite frankly, as you will have noticed, I'm fed up with Trump. Well, mostly. Wink

It's not that I was born in Ireland,
It's the Ireland that was born in me.

Okay, these issues are not as important as Trump having two scoops of ice cream, when everyone else got one, but they are pretty important....<grin>

For example, Donald Trump is nicknamed "Pele" by his golf buddies, because he tends to cheat by kicking the ball.  What does it "mean" when such a powerful man is a golf cheat?  inquiring minds want to knowWink

The golf journalist who wrote "Who's Your Caddy?" spent a day with Mr. Trump on one of his golf courses, Trump bragged that his golf course had the biggest artificial waterfall of any golf course in the world, I think the golf journalist just thought it was noisy, loud and distracting.  But apparently that is something that Trump thinks improves a golf course, just like gold plate on an escalator.  It is like owning a rototiller with fins.  
I think that for some people, the fact that Trump is such a violation of aesthetics is the thing that gets to them the most.  And for other people, that is probably what they like about him the most.  It is a bad criteria for president, but then again, cultural snobbery is a bad criteria for opposing someone too.  If the left disliked just Trump as bad taste, one could understand.  But, the fact is the left (and the media) have always disliked the right.  Maybe if journalism had treated past Republican presidents and candidates with some semblance of respect, people would see the treatment of President Trump as something other than knee-jerk reflexes the left always has towards anyone they deem too "radical" right for their tastes.  For the "liberal" philosopher John Dewey, Leon Trotsky was not beyond the pale.  There is nothing beyond the pale on the left, for the left, just fellow travelers, whether they be Comrade Trotsky or the velvet underground (not the band).
