Nobody has asked the important question:
Can you trust a man who pretends that he has hair?
The film American Hustle, begins with a ritual, a man contorting his hair into something rather like Mr. Trump creates each day. The man in American Hustle is a scam artist. His elaborate comb-over conceals a grotesque, extreme case of male-pattern-baldness, with long hanks of hair extruding from his head. Watching as he carefully contorts it in order to conceal the ugly reality beneath is a horrible, yet fascinating experience. The fabrication offers a clue about the character of the man. He's inauthentic, yet capable of projecting great confidence where none is justified. He's a salesman, a fake, a manipulator. Like the man in the film, Mr Trump has excellent social skills. He's a consummate actor, capable of improvising without a script. His remarkable instinct for reading other people enable him to work a crowd like a conductor leads an orchestra. Can he be trusted? Of course not. He 's not really a leader. He's just playing one. A real leader would not hide under a comb-over.
