It makes me think, could there ever be a Democratic version of Trump, and I don't think there could be. The closest comparison I can think of is that Oprah could definitely win the Presidency if she wanted to.
All you have to do is own the libs and you can be as powerful as you want. Elon can easily be president if he wants to. If you’re sociopathically ambitious, getting the dumb under your thumb is the easiest way to the top, and it’s very very easy to do once you have some name recognition.
