My closest analogy is John Hancock. Richest man in the colonies and of a suspect background. Revolution would not have happened without his financial support of Sam Adams. He saw himself as the ulimate leader, was a bragadocio, and self described as “very smart” as frequently as anyone would listen. He jockeyed to be commander of Continental Army.
Sam backstabbed him and nominated George, the traitorous loser from VA....and we all know how that turned out.
The Donald could be either John or George in the next American revolution.....or neither.
