I never really understood Trump's popularity.

To me, even back in the 1980s, when he first entered my consciousness, he always seemed like the very definition of a rich, arrogant jerk. Not the well-mannered, genteel sort of rich, but a brash, arrogant, in-your-face sort who unapologetically flaunted his wealth and high opinion of himself, with no pretense of humility, in a way that I never found at all endearing. And it always seemed apparent that Trump believed that his wealth was evidence of his superiority.

But I guess those same qualities that I find so unappealing are attractive to others?
