C'mon, Really. When a Thug Like Robert Mugabe Claims Kin With Your President, You Need to Ask Just What You've Gotten Yourself Into.
Leaving the bragging rights aside, I was astounded to learn today that I wasn't the only one who found similarities between America's new president and Zimbabwe's bad boy, Robert Mugabe.
I didn't expect it, the more so when I found myself agreeing on the point with - Robert Mugabe himself.
Mugabe sees much of Trump in himself because, in some critical ways, they're cut from the same cloth.
We know a lot about Bob Mugabe, plenty enough. Since he rose to power in the former Rhodesia in 1980, this narcissistic megalomaniac has brought wave upon wave of ruin to his land, his thin gruel spiced up with bouts of murderous brutality.
His current wife, Zimbabwe's Melania so to speak, recently announced that, should her lacquered 93-year old boy toy/sugar daddy croak before the next election, she'll have him embalmed/preserved (think Lenin) and run him for president anyway.That sounds decidedly Trumpian, don't you think?
President Bob is right. In many ways, he is the revolutionary African forerunner of the Great Orange Bloat. Americans, including Trump supporters, would do well to think that one through.
