Donald Trump as Calvin from Calvin & Hobbes
December 22, 2015
Others cover Trump’s attention-seeking behavior, his unfamiliarity with the Constitution (e.g., his proposal to enact the death penalty for cop killers by executive order; Jim Geraghty: “The current GOP presidential front-runner rarely uses the words ‘freedom’ or ‘liberty’ in his remarks at all”), his ever-changing positions and notable lack of principles, his cartoonishly negative campaign, his strange habit of bragging about how rich he is, greed itself, and, of course, his ridiculous penchant for assuring people that he is awesome.
Finally, this one humorously anticipates his fans’ disappointment when (if?) they finally figure out that he was just in it for his own self-aggrandizement all along, while this one anticipates Trump’s disappointment when (if?) he figures out that the world doesn’t revolve around him.
Guest appearance by Jeb Bush! Funny and spot on.
Hat tip to Jonah Goldberg.
Meanwhile Jim Geraghty has the latest round-up of Trump’s ego issues.
