Jim Gearhart explains ‘The Trump Phenomena’
America is having an "Emperor's New Clothes" moment.
If Donald Trump's participation in the 2016 presidential race has shown us anything so far, it's that this country is straightjacketed by political correctness. We've allowed ourselves to become so regimented in our thoughts and expressions that we rarely question the status quo, and are shocked when someone does.
Callers shared their thoughts about Trump's bluntness this morning, bringing us to the conclusion that the real estate tycoon is a surrogate saying what many of us are afraid to voice. Yes, he is rough around the edges, and you may disagree with his stances or doubt his ability to be effective in the Oval Office. But as several callers said, his popularity represents the many disgruntled citizens who are sick of career politicians and corruption.
Will the Trump phenomena help America, even if he isn't elected? Or is it just a fad? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
