Even if you dismiss the fact that Donald Trump has failed at literally every business endeavor outside of real estate and entertainment, you still have to look at his business decisions with skepticism. His supporters see a rich man who must be good at business – after all he’s rich! Of course, had he taken the tremendous empire he was born into and invested his riches into simple index stocks, his fortune would be at least double what it is today.
There’s one thing that truly separates Donald Trump from Adolf Hitler. Both rose through fear and lies. Both were narcissistic. Both were authoritarians. However, Adolf Hitler was evil. Say what you will about Donald Trump, but his self-serving delusions of grandeur and failures of leadership represent a bad President, not an evil one. Comparing them without acknowledging this extremely important portion of their character is, as Trump would classify it, completely unfair.
There’s a difference between the Establishment sheep at Fox News and the real conservative commentators who are unifying around the reality that Donald Trump would destroy the Republican party and cripple America whether with his own liberal policies or by allowing Hillary Clinton to win the general election. Thomas Sowell falls into the latter category. Few are as intelligent and honest about the true ways to repair this country than Sowell.
