Why the fascination?
For the record, I rarely spoke an ill word about Donald Trump when he was just a periodically bankrupt Casino developer, serial adulterer, wrestling promoter and Reality TV jerk. In all those roles, I could ignore him, perhaps occasionally musing about “why are some people so fascinated with him?”
It’s only in his role as President that we dare not ignore him — which ironically falls right into his hands, because he’ll gladly play the fool and debase himself if only he can keep the cameras pointed his way.
And some people, inexplicably, remain fascinated with, rather than appalled by, his dangerous antics.
