When you are comparing a Progressive hero to a Conservative hero and the Conservative hero is Trump? No, I am afraid the facts speak for themselves in both cases. 


The facts do indeed speak for themselves.

One is an example of an entrepeneur that made it entirely on his own.

The other is an object of ridicule, subject of obscene japes and an international joke.

 

 

 

Have pity for Melania - she hasn't yet got rid of that ugly fat.

No, I am saying that if one truly admires someone like Kevin Smith, he should be able to discuss him positively without having to detour to another person falsely labeled "Conservative hero".

Kevin Smith wanted to write, produce, and act in movies. He went to the Toronto Film School because they advertised hands-on filmmaking. They were all theory. He went to work in a video store, borrowed $40K against credit cards, and made "Clerks" when the store was closed.  It was a huge success and he has continued to make successful films. He is overweight, smokes grass, his favorite co-star, Jay, is a recovering heroin addict, and he is an avowed Progressive. 

 

Enter Donald Trump. Entrepreneur Hero of the Conservatives. Father "loaned" him multi million dollars.  Greased the skids for him as he cheated vendors and bond holders across the U.S. so he could brag of his accomplishments. 

 

How much has our country changed since Horatio Alger?
