I think this commentary is more about what makes someone like Trump popular. I’ve watched him many times, and he says nothing substantive – aside from insisting he’s going to force Mexico to build a wall to our specifications and that he’ll make them like it – but without giving a single detail. BUT Trump says whatever he feels like saying, regardless of whom he insults or hurts, he’s supremely self-confident, and he’s a well-known bully. THAT’S what people like about him – and that, I believe, is what Wiley is fascinated with. It’s not the content of his policy – because they don’t care what his policy is – it’s the “strong man” image he portrays.
