    For Donald Trump not to realize what the apex of being American is all about is pretty much unconceivable considering that among many things, he's on the judges panel of a show called Celebrity Apprentice. What I'm getting at, is that the masses don't necessarely always want to go for the best cup with the silver and gold lining. But more often than not, they much rather go for the one that symbolizes the masses on a much broader spectrum. Borak Obama came from a broken family, wasn't raised by either his father or mother; has got many half-sisters and half-brothers, is interracial and morally, politically a liberal progressive. And the list goes on and on. He has just got a much broader base of sympathizers (The core of modern America.) But what does Donald Trump have got to offer? A new way of doing business? Possibly a way of getting out of poverty? People don't need that. People come home dirty, hungry and poor and want to watch and or ear about their president, one of their very own making speeches off of teleprompters with great big charming words of solidarity, giving hope to the masses, that even one of them someday could become a president. And the thing about him possibly not been born here, adds him even much greater base of sympathizers. (When considering all the illegal immigrant eligible voters.
