    "ADDED: It's funny — Trump haters are always saying that Trump makes everything all about him. But Barbaro and Herndon are perceiving that Trump rallies are about the people... the people who love Trump. And maybe they love Trump because he creates a space in which they can love themselves. That's why the slogan is "Make America Great Again" (or "Keep America Great").

    (Meanwhile, the Democratic Party idea seems to be "America = racism.")"

    **Note Althouse is a retired law professor and center-left democrat.

    I can honestly tell you, I feel good when I hear him Speechafying, I cannot tell you the last time I heard any Politician move me., maybe because he (Trump) isn't a Politician.

    Trump is a Blue collar kind of guy in a Billionaires body, he appeals to the common man.

    Whenever I see Politicians wearing a shirt with the sleeves rolled up and a pair of jeans, they look fake, like there only trying to appeal to the people for that moment, they are all a bunch of suits, I don't believe Trump has done that.
    At least I haven't seen him do it.

    Trump just makes me feel "Proud to be an American AGAIN"

    I'm sure your quote is accurate but it's usual to add a link to the quote source so readers can also see the context in which the quote was made and published.

    I thought so, that is why I said it, glad to see you agree!
    Although a Like or Winner would have sufficed.

    Lovely

    Now for your entertainment:

    Which of the following quotes most accurately describes the mindset of El Presidente Trump:

    1. 'There's one born every minute'
    or
    2. 'You can fool some of the people all of the time...'
    A correct answer gets you exclusive bidding rights on this large bridge I happen to have for sale.
