Now I Understand

It has always baffled me how an ostentatious, megalomaniac billionaire like Donald Trump could be idolized by the masses, particularly the poor, undereducated people who seem to hang on his every word and believe every lie he tells. How could they vote for and continue to support him even though everything he stands for and does is against their own interests.

And then I came across this, an old Turkish proverb, and it explained a lot.

    Yes, that’s it. For some obscure reason they identify with him.

    A cutthroat proverb, so effective to explain the mob/herd mentality.
