I Finally Realized Who Donald Trump Is Like

image via

The world hasn’t seen someone like Donald Trump in a long time. Just witness the number of articles online comparing him to various political figures: many of these comparisons are individually good, but the sheer volume shows how little we really understand Trump’s success and appeal. Every attempt to assimilate him to known quantities — especially those who ended badly — shows just how novel and unprecedented his candidacy really is, and how hard it is for us to wrap our brains around it (and him).

I run a publication that specializes in comparisons between the ancient and modern world, but even I am starting to feel like enough is enough. Are all of these comparisons really helping understand him better?
