To call Donald Trump a redneck does a disservice to the rednecks I have known. They, at least, work for their money. Trump inherited his and has managed it in a careless, cavalier, and, indeed, parasitic manner.
Donald Trump, like the namesake of our 41st president, George H. W. Bush, hasn’t the least idea of what it means to work for a living. His racket — and it is a racket — is to finagle unsuspecting investors into dubious “money-making” schemes which almost invariably go belly-up, and then file for bankruptcy to avoid paying his debts.
I expect he imagines he can finance his campaign in the same manner and, if elected, the U.S. Treasury. I will be interested in watching him take our government into protection from creditors in the World Court.
