David Brooks, "A Sensible Version of Donald Trump": What Number Will Trump Give Hillary?

Donald Trump? Sensible? They don't belong in the same sentence.

In his latest New York Times op-ed entitled "A Sensible Version of Donald Trump," David Brooks plays the "What if?" game:

"But imagine if we had a sensible Trump in the race. Suppose there was some former general or business leader with impeccable outsider status but also a steady temperament, deep knowledge and good sense."

Brooks proceeds to describe a non-politician with ideas that could bridge the widening gap between conservatives and progressives and "create environments of opportunity in middle-, working- and lower-class neighborhoods."

And what if the moon was made of cheese?

Would any rational, middle-of-the-road Democrat dare challenge the Hillary juggernaut, which is expected to grease her reentry into the White House at a cost of $2.5 billion? You see, when you've got money behind you, "things" like the return of furniture to the White House cease to matter, and lies told to the families of those who died in Benghazi are swept under the carpet by an accommodating media.

Trump? Narcissism Run Wild. A one-man circus. Trump declared on Monday:

"It has not been easy for me, it has not been easy for me. And you know I started off in Brooklyn, my father gave me a small loan of a million dollars."

A "small" loan? Taking into account inflation, that loan made in 1968 is worth almost $7 million today.

Meanwhile, I'm waiting for Trump to "rate" Hillary as he did Heidi Klum. Go for it, Donald, make my day! Maybe you will climb higher in the polls! (And maybe not, but we'll all be entertained . . .)
