Person v. Performance

Instinct-driven people are hooked on personal coonection, evenwhen they do not know how to connect. The politics of personal destruction and personal adulation are examples of both.
The connection to personalities is quite irrational, but usually boils down to some emotional trigger, for good or ill. The Bernie Sanders fans are as unhinged as the Trumpists. Are Sanders’ policy proposals more caring and supportive? Without a doubt. Coukd he get them enacted as President? Not likely.

He’s also got a deus ex machina mentality.

Trump’s a home wrecker. That is all he’s good at. Wrecking is probably an addiction by now.
