Bite Your Tongue: Trump is NO Reagan

I posted a simple question on my Facebook page – Why Trump? I wanted to know what people thought. One person responded that she believed (Not felt) That people saw him as another Reagan. What! No, she had to be wrong. Just reading those words sent me into a tizzy. Trump like Reagan … uh, can we say ‘Blasphemy’?

Believing that there was no way people thought that, at least the masses. I googled ‘Trump like Reagan’ and lo and behold, not to my surprise, the first thing that popped up was Trump comparing his campaign to Reagan.

Seriously?

Maybe I am taking it too much to heart. As a diehard Reagan fan, there was only one Reagan. And my fandom comes from the man he was, not even so much his politics. He was charming and funny. Trump is rude and obnoxious. Reagan had class, Trump needs to take one on manners. Reagan was strong, Trump is a mean bully. It’s like Prince Charming VS Archie Bunker, apples to Oranges. Sweet pickles to olives. There is no comparison.

Admittedly, I am not a Trump fan. I disliked him when the world disliked him. Remember when he was a joke? To me, he still is.

Any comparison to Reagan is blasphemous.

People talk about how Reagan wasn’t a politician. Really? Wasn’t he a Governor first?

Hey, Trump? You wanna ban Muslims? Kick out all undocumented immigrants, build a freaking wall? Conservatives like to forget that Reagan gave amnesty to 3 million undocumented immigrants. Yeah, he did.

To further educate Trump. Foreign Policy isn’t a policy that is foreign to people and they don’t ‘get’.

Our Nuclear triad is not a spicy new gum.

Granted there are a few similarities between Reagan and Trump and I begrudgingly mention.  They both had more than one wife, both are 69 running for office, they both worried about their hair. But could you see Ronald Reagan saying, “Yeah, my daughter Patty, I’d date her if we weren’t related.”? No! But Trump said that about his own kid. That’s wrong on so many levels.

But then again, his daughter is female. Trump loves women only if they look a certain way.
Reagan would never publically call or even admit to calling another woman a ‘fat pig’, like Trump. Let’s see, Trump claimed all women on The Apprentice flirted with him, blames Hillary for Bill cheating (So freaking male), dissed Carly Fiorina’s looks, called a female reporter a dog, said Meagan Kelly Bleeds from ‘wherever’ said a breastfeeding mother was disgusting for needing to pump her milk, and since ‘disgusting’ is his favorite word, let’s not forget Hillary using the restroom was disgusting. Like he never had to take a dump or a piss. What is he Kim jong un?

To twist-a-quote from Lloyd Benson, “I loved Ronald Reagan, I studied Ronald Reagan, you Trump are no Ronald Reagan.”


I feel much better now that I wrote this. I’ll step off my soapbox now.

    Just got around to reading this posting. Must confess that I agree with you 99.99%. (Hey! I'm not perfect!) Nonetheless, in my estimation, your take on DT is spot on. (Hmmm... doesn't "DT" also mean "delirium tantrums"??? )
