...just some plucky kid with a few million dollars from the old man and a slum here or there to exploit. Real rags to riches story.

But really, he helps with this myth that leadership of all kinds, not just business, requires nothing but you yelling a lot and saying how things will be. Be tough. Don't yield. The whole "listen ya mothafuckas this is the deal" imagined speech he was going to give China. And then get played at every turn.

I guess if all you do is watch Pravda and America's Next Top Businessman or whatever, these are your criteria. Idiots.

"None of this troubles the loop. Trump watches and emotes; he excretes and consumes. That a great and greatly conflicted experiment in self-government has come to this—a whole nation trying to talk a shitfaced trust-fund lout into a cab so that he won’t mow down everyone on the sidewalk, and then talking about what a fantastic job he did barfing in the ashtray—is one thing. It’s many things. But none of those things are complicated."
