Is Trump the Patton of politics?


There are lottsa parallels between the two men in that they are both Alpha males who shoot from the hip yet always seem to land on their feet.

I'm watching this movie and took a break to see if anyone had mentioned that on the board so I would say yes!

Patton landed on his back.

he often refers to him.

Not even close. Patton was a career military man. Trump is a silver spooned draft dodger. Patton meant the things he said. Trump is a salesman, who says what he thinks people want to hear in the moment. A sleazy con man, out for himself and could give a fart about his country.

Very good answer. Patton helped defeat fascists while Trump idolizes them. Patton went to war, Trump avoided war.

Please, don't insult a great general like that.
