“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” ~ Franklin Roosevelt
They hate him beause he is an Alpha Male. He’s fearless. He charges ahead. He doesn’t retreat. Don’t you prefer that kind of leader to one who cowers in his basement wearing a mask?
While he was in the hospital with The Kung Flu, The Donald said:
“I had to be out front. I can’t be locked up in a room upstairs and [be] totally safe, and just say, ‘Hey, whatever happens, happens.’ I can’t do that. We have to confront problems.”
When discharged he said, “”Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life.”
One inelegant comparison of alpha and beta males came on twitter.
Dan P. McAdams, professor of psychology at Northwestern University, writes:
Almost 40 years ago, in an interview with People magazine, Trump said: “Man is the most vicious of all animals, and life is a series of battles ending in victory or defeat.” His philosophical musing on human nature applies even better to life in a chimpanzee colony. The alpha chimp survives each angry moment to win the next battle – until his winning streak ends.
I recommend the article, but McAdams is engaging in some wishful thinking about the end of Trump’s winning streak. They say that every time.
