Hermit Kingdom Envy
Trump is again gushing over the power and tyranny of dictators.
As I've pointed out before, Trump equates intelligence, smartness, and machismo with ruthlessness, power, and domination. That's why Hezbollah is "smart," Kim Jong-un is "tough and smart," and why Trump praises Xi Jinping for “the look, the strength, the voice!”
The only thing that speaks to this man is power and influence. He's vain, he's greedy, he's everything the conservative movement used to understand was anathema to good governance. He is the antithesis of a George Washington, the precise opposite type of human being that the office of the presidency should be entrusted to.
And what's crazy is how he convinces people he fights for them. If he really cared about the people, he would never call someone who inflicts tyranny and deprivation upon their own people, as Kim Jong Un and Xi Jinping so ruthlessly do, intelligent or smart. But he does, because he doesn't care for the people, he wants power over the people. He envies the hermit kingdom over the land of the free, because of the power a dictator can wield.
