Donald Trump is a narcissistic, ego maniacal, megalomaniac with no scruples or ethics to speak of. And that’s just when he’s being charming.
So what would a Trump presidency actually look like?
To illustrate I found one of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite Vince Vaughn movies, “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story” produced in 2004.
In this scene, Ben Stiller plays “White Goodman”, a character who was probably modeled after Trump in some fashion. Goodman is the owner of “Globogym” a rich powerful worldwide gym which sought to buy out a smaller gym named “Average Joes” run by Vaughn’s character, “Peter La Fleur”.
Both Goodman and La Fleur have the same love interest a character named “Kate Veatch” played by Christine Taylor.
In this scene Goodman is meeting with Veatch to discuss his plans to acquire Average Joes.
When thinking about a Trump presidency this is exactly how I would picture it. Complete with the painting in the background.
Here’s the video.
