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?
Apparently.

I think he first came into my consciousness when Bill the Cat suffered some sort of problem and believed he was Donald Trump in the Bloom County comic strip.

I miss comic strips.
