by David Brooks, The New York Times, MARCH 18, 2016 - .... Trump voters are a coalition of the dispossessed. They have suffered
lost jobs, lost wages, lost dreams. The American system is not working
for them, so naturally they are looking for something else. ...We expected Trump to fizzle because we were not socially intermingled with his supporters and did not listen carefully enough.
Donald Trump is epically unprepared to be president. He has no realistic policies, no advisers, no capacity to learn. His vast narcissism makes him a closed fortress. He doesn’t know what he doesn’t know and he’s uninterested in finding out. He insults the office Abraham Lincoln once occupied by running for it with less preparation than most of us would undertake to buy a sofa.
He is a childish man running for a job that requires maturity. He is an insecure boasting little boy whose desires were somehow arrested at age 12.
