From the files of not normal: Trump thinks he’s an outsider

by Patty Templeton

News you need to knowOn Saturday, May 13, President Trump gave his first commencement speech. It was at Liberty University, an evangelical institution created by Jerry “AIDS is the wrath of a just God against homosexuals” Falwell.

During his speech, Trump said, “Relish the opportunity to be an outsider,” he continued. “Embrace that label. Being an outsider is fine. Embrace the label, because it’s the outsiders who change the world and who make a real and lasting difference.”

Why this is not normalDonald Trump may have been an outsider to mainstream politics, having only had experience in political commentary through the media before his presidency, but in no other way is he an outsider.

Here are a few of the insider advantages Trump has had in life:

President Trump was born a white man in pre-Civil Rights era 1946.

Trump grew up in an exclusive Queens’ neighborhood with private schools and a real estate mogul father worth at least $200 million.

The Donald received four educational draft deferments and one medical deferment (for bone spurs) that allowed him to avoid serving in the Vietnam War.

When his dad died in 1974, Trump received an estimated $40 million inheritance. Possibly more.

Because of his father, Donald Trump had an open-line of credit and personal funds to go into whatever business his heart desired. In addition, he had his father’s healthy, wealthy company handed to him on a gold plate.

But, sure, why not, let’s all keep pretending that Trump came up by his bootstraps and outsider ingenuity.
