    Odd, I'm wondering what this says about Trump's personality.

    The first thing that popped into my mind, was Hitler's hatred of modern art. He had been an artist before he was a politician and favored landscapes, but by the 1930's, still-lifes and landscapes, etc, had fallen out of favor and modern art consisted largely of abstracts. He even had an "art show" in order to ridicule modern art. Fascism is neither left nor right, but rather it incorporates extreme views from left and right.

    The second thing that I was reminded of was from my days as a punk. Many punks hate art and did even like music -- unless it was the anti-music: Punk Rock. Pucks tend to be anarchists and tend to be politically bi-polar. Anarchy is middle of the road but hardly a centrist party -- it's the far edge of libertarian-ism, but extreme in how it is intolerant of civilization.

    What does that say about Trump? Trump dislikes modernism.

    Why?

    Because Trump is a fascist Punk.

    Abracadabra.
    Thanks from Friday13 and BigLeRoy

    How about you discuss what is happening now, not 20 years ago! You afraid to do that? I admitted long ago that Clinton was a horn dog so let us discuss Trump now,if you do not mind.

    Of course I have not carried jealousy around for 20 years. I had friends tell me Clinton could put his shoes under their bed any time. All I hear now is ,Ē Ugh,who would have sex with that fat,orange combover?Ē
    Junita Broderick lied about being raped. Several experts examined her audio and determined that she probably did have an affair with Clinton, but she was not raped.

    The story that Trump watched tapes that aides made of a gorilla channel which was 24 hours a day of gorillas fighting turned out to be a hoax but incredibly easy to believe.

    No you are just on a hunt to fling on him. How does Obama having rappers or any one else at the White House better anyone's lives?

    That's not a thing. There is no scientific way to determine someone lied from audio.

    While I did vote for Trump (flame away Libs) I never considered that he was anything like me. I like art and music, because I'm very introspective and hopefully a man of deep feeling and empathy. Trump is completely money driven. While my last post was tongue and cheek, most monetarily driven individuals lack empathy; some to the point of being a sociopath.

    So much for this...

    OK how does that benefit the lives of Americans? You think some poor family living in Appalachia really cares?

    I knew that. Try and explain to those who have obsessed on Clinton and his sex life for 20 years!

With his remarks after Charlottesville, offering praise for the Neo-Nazis----there were some 'very fine people' marching with them, he said. With his many, many vile remarks about women, which couldn't even all be covered in one post.


    You apparently read the OP, and it never even OCCURRED to you to ask WHY the artistic and intellectual community of America has so much contempt for Donald Trump. The thought quite literally never even entered your mind.


    Is your mind then just puny that it cannot hold such thoughts, or cannot even turn them over to examine them? You can't even WONDER why America's artists and musicians and writers and intellectuals and academics seem to almost universally LOATHE Donald Trump?


    Apparently so.
    The proponents of Critical Theory likely have contempt for him too.
