#Quora: Nate White Hilariously Answers the Query –”Why Do British People NOT Like Trump?”

Nate White, a witty writer from England wrote the perfect response.

A few things spring to mind…

Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem.

For instance, he 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 qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed.

So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.

Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable, he has never once said anything wry, witty or even faintly amusing – not once, ever.

I don’t say that rhetorically, I mean it quite literally: not once, not ever. And that fact is particularly disturbing to the British sensibility – for us, to lack humour is almost inhuman.

But with Trump, it’s a fact. He doesn’t even seem to understand what a joke is – his idea of a joke is a crass comment, an illiterate insult, a casual act of cruelty.

Trump is a troll.

=================================


Mr. White so nails the character (or lack thereof) evinced by Donald Trump since LONG before his election that I felt his op-ed piece deserved mention here. I don't think it's just on point; I think White's bolt hit center bull with a degree of accuracy that even Robin Hood would envy.

So I offer it here for your enjoyment.

Trump is a troll for:

1) xians who want their end times, and

2) the wealthy who know there will be no end times.

Of course, if the Rapture were real, it would be an unparalleled opportunity...

“What if The Rapture actually happened” Heavenly voice from the clouds, in Old English type: “It is time.” Republican man in suit, with elephant head and cross pin: “It is HERE! The GOOD, the RIGHTEOUS and the WORTHY are consecrated!” “SO LONG, you godless unbelieving LEFT-BEHINDS!” (as he and other Republicans are lifted into the clouds) Heavenly voice: “Upward”. Democrats in suits, with donkey heads: GASP!! “Wow.” As the last of the Republicans vanish into the cloud: “Wow.” Democrats race to the Capitol Building. Last panel is a collage of headlines: “Gun laws expand; NRA rebuffed” “EPA gets new powers” “Abortion rights protected” “New liberal Supreme Court majority overturns the ‘Citizens United’ ruling; Corporate influence, tax dodges eliminated...” “Minimum wage hiked” “Obamacare sees major expansion; Single-payer system passed overwhelmingly” “Climate change omnibus bill passed” “Fracking banned” “Progressive tax rates to return to pre-Reagan era”

Very enjoyable, Loren!
