    Trump is like the Slitheen

    In Doctor Who there is an alien species called the Slitheen.

    They came to Earth and killed powerful fat people and used the bodies as disguises. Wearing their fat suits, they worked their way up the ladder in local and national politics.

    One Slitheen became the mayor of Cardiff, Wales. She was using a public works project as a cover for a more nefarious project of her own.

    A human lady figured out that something was wrong with the public works project, so she took her concerns to the mayor, which basically was going to spell her doom, but then as the mayor was preparing to kill the woman, the woman let it slip that she was pregnant, and the Slitheen mayor got a bit emotional and let the woman go.

    This made the Slitheen mayor feel good about herself. Later, as Doctor Who was doing what he needed to do to save Cardiff and the rest of the world from what the mayor had planned, and he had the mayor confined in preparation for taking her back to meet justice on her home planet, she tried to use not killing the pregnant woman as a way to get brownie points with the Doctor. She was doing a pretty good job of seeming like a sympathetic figure, but the Doctor cut neatly through the crap.

    The Slitheen mayor was a killer. Letting one person go, on a whim, let her delude herself into thinking that she was good, but she was a killer. An incorrigible killer.



    Every now and then Trump does something which almost seems human, almost seems like it might have come from some hidden recess of decency, and it gives him something to pat himself on the back for, but it doesn't change the reality of his dark, destructive, selfish nature.

    For anyone interested:

    Slitheen

    (Note that "Slitheen" is actually the family name; the planet name is Raxacoricofallapatorius.)

    The episode in which the above occurred was Boom Town, and was from the first series of the rebooted Doctor Who (featuring the Ninth Doctor, played by Christopher Eccleston).



    Trump does nothing unless it is good for Trump. Any positive effect on someone outside his interests is purely incidental.

    No problem. Anything that contributes to an understanding of Doctor Who.
