The Secret Service has done a disgraceful job in protecting President Obama and the First Family. It seems like more white guys have jumped the White House gates than any other time in US history. So much so, the news reports read like really bad versions of the Olympics.

In the midst of all the Election madness, I find a sweet irony that Trump is the only candidate who actually deserves the Secret Service’s service.

Scary as it is, we must acknowledge this Trump guy has appeal. Every time he speaks he appears intoxicated by the sound of his own voice. And this creates a chain effect. His supporters/followers are intoxicated by this guy who is intoxicated by his own voice.

They believe him and worse, they want to vote for him. Trump is a player and an illusionist. He is the guy/that guy who knows how to stir people up, and convert their fears, doubts and insecurities into political currency.

Trump reminds me of the kid who spikes the punch at the prom. The result: lots of fighting and name calling followed by confusion, hangovers, irritability, and memory loss. Looks like a case of PDT (Political Delirium tremens) Trump style.
