Thoughts from Maharrey Head #35: Donald Trump

“10 Minutes Closer to Freedom”


In this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I share my thoughts on the Trump phenomenon.

As a general rule, I don’t care much about national politics. I’m particularly apathetic about who inhabits the White House. But the Donald Trump phenomenon is pretty hard to ignore, and I couldn’t resist weighing in.

There is plenty to dislike about The Donald. On the other hand, he’s said some things I think sound pretty good. But to me, Trump’s meteoric rise is more interesting than the things he says, and what he may or may not do as president. It tells us a lot about the American people and the current state of politics in the U.S. Again – some things to like, or at least enjoy – and some things are pretty disconcerting.

In this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I share some of my thoughts about Donald Trump and what his ascendancy means. I offer up a little bit of Trump analysis from a generally detached third party perspective.
