Quote of the Day

“It’s been said before that Trump is America’s Berlusconi, and the comparison is easy to see. Both are older white men with a lot of wealth of dubious provenance. Both decided to enter the public arena after promising they would run their countries the way they run their companies. Both are openly misogynistic while claiming to love women, and both share a questionable sense of humor. They appeal to what in Italy is referred to as “the belly” of the electorate—their gut reactions to the issues at hand.”—Annalisa Merelli, “Donald Trump is not a joke: A warning to Americans from an Italian who survived Berlusconi”

  1. I’m not sure about the “older white men” comparison. I know plenty of older white men who lead useful and productive lives. Surprisingly few are inclined to megalomania.
