I think I finally understand Donald Trump
He is not a misogynist
He is not vindictive
He is not a bully
We are simply using the wrong set of criteria to render judgment.
He just is the guy who has an instinct for what it takes to win, and that includes (must include, among other things) a beat down of the competition until deterrence is achieved.
This is the only issue in his mind
There are no standards of behavior.
There is no such thing as decency.
There is no such thing as gallantry.
There are no good guys.
There are no bad guys (Thanks, Dave Mason)
Everyone is equal before his consideration.
If you are not an ally you are under suspicion as an enemy (I mean, you are not an ally)
If you are an enemy you must die and be seen to be killed.
This process goes on until no one is left.
