Trump’s Dump

In my very first column for the Resurgent, I theorized that one of the biggest problems liberals had in attacking Donald Trump was that the man is essentially Rodney Dangerfield in Caddyshack–a rich.

Mostly loveable slob whose greatest pleasure in life is tweaking the old-money snobs who think they’re better than him. People root for Rodney because they see him sticking it to the man and having fun while he’s doing it, kind of like Trump when he sticks it to the DC establishment, and when they see him being rude and ill-mannered–well, that’s just part of his underdog charm.
