I knew it would be coldly received, but he really does have this defiance that I think is a rare trait in anyone in political spotlights. I didn't say he is a charmer. Or that I agree with his policies or basic social skills even. I just like the fact that I don't wonder what he is really thinking. Because he will tell us whats on his mind. Even if its cringe-inducing a majority of the time, he is not treating the public as if we are stupid. We aren't. I like a blatant-but-honest person more than a well calculated diplomat with undisclosed motives. The latter describes many political leaders. Thank you for commenting. I know its a sticky subject. I appreciate your engagement.
