You are saying a person who is clearly much more successful than you, a much better public speaker, with a much prettier wife is a moron? I am saying, don't underestimate him intellectually and mistake his bluster for idiocy. I, for one, would not buy a used car from him or bet against him.

Disclosure: I also for the longest time thought he was all talk, but I think back in the day we just didn't have that many media options to get unfiltered coverage of candidates.

I am saying, don't underestimate him intellectually

I'll tell you what, I'll concede I used moron in the reddit-sense - I don't think he's actually stupid, I think he has a highly developed fast-thinking system and experience, but his slow-thinking and wisdom are probably lacking. He's good at a few learned behaviors and I think he definitely has an above average IQ, but don't forget:

Plot human and dog IQs and there is an overlap.

The weird thing is, if a media position tries to go against him, it's on a point you intuitively knows he was making in good faith - that whole "all mexicans are rapists" - he said "some of the people coming over the border are rapists" - lol, did any one person stand up and say that was false? No, but he was criticized in a very SJWay.

He kinda exposes the natural tendency for the current knitting-circle-jerk of assholes to jump on things he says and get offended and that's coming through.

I have no idea of his economics, I'd be more Rand, but even he has some problems in his rhetoric (on healthcare, I'd love to have a coffee and talk with him about healthcare - you can see he's 90% there and is missing just one crucial element - a libertarian blindness)

I genuinely want to see Trump win because - I don't see him doing any harm, I think he singular campaign slogan is pretty nail-on-head - jobs and great again - it's preposterously optimistic but he comes off as someone who wants to prove himself - and as much as I genuinely hated the fucker, he's come out, through all the media attention, as someone you hate to like - and I only want to see him win as a lol.

But what a lol.

If he keeps up the pace, the debates will be epic, that's for sure. If he gets the nomination, the media circus and SJW tears will be difficult to even imagine. So yes, the potential for top keks is there.

What I would like to know, personally, is if his public speaking skills have been trained or if it's mostly a natural talent. A million hours of mirror practice? Who knows!
