Of course, no other president — not even our worst ones such as Buchanan, Pierce, Arthur, Harding, Nixon, Dubya — is like Trump.
The only person ever to take the White House without ever having held prior elective office or been a general (and one of only five who did so while losing the actual vote of the people — and losing by a margin greater than all the total previous losing vote margins COMBINED). Trump’s only “qualification” was inheriting beaucoup bucks from Daddy, squandering most of it, driving six companies into bankruptcy, getting bailed out by Vladimir Putin, and then CONvincing enough people that he was a “successful businessman” to get close enough to winning that he could cheat and steal his way across the finish line.
Trump is, indeed, unlike anyone we have ever seen before and, hopefully, anyone we will ever again see in the future.
