In before the inevitable “Why should I give a damn what the Brits think?” response.
(Edited to add commentary) As to the opinion itself? Some points stand out:
…he [Trump] has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honour and no grace
All hard to argue, but especially no coolness and no humor. I said elsewhere that so much of skilled humor involves the ability to be self-deprecating, an ability Donald’s fragile ego simply cannot withstand. It’s why he lashes back like a wounded child whenever there is criticism against him, be it satire or serious.
He punches downwards - which a gentleman should, would, could never do - and every blow he aims is below the belt. He particularly likes to kick the vulnerable or voiceless
Trump supporters have often lauded Donald for his “counter-punching,” so I suppose this is a matter of perspective. Does Donald only attack those who “are very very mean to him,” or does he also go after people because he knows it wins the approval of his base?
After all, it’s impossible to read a single tweet, or hear him speak a sentence or two, without staring deep into the abyss.
Agreed. There isn’t much about the man himself that suggests a redeeming quality, and that’s why the default response is often “I voted for policy, not the man.”
