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?
I agree. It's like trying to explain why some people like peas or fruit cake. Or The Bachelor. Or the WWE. Or spiders. Or buttermilk. Or haggis. Or Louie Gohmert. Or Ebony and Ivory.......
