The Donald Trump of the Left

Reader comment on item: Popping Linda Sarsour's Balloon

Submitted by Dave (United States), Jun 11, 2017 at 12:21

Linda Sarsour is a vain, self-serving liar, a conspiracy monger, a superficial, ill-informed name-caller who insults her foes with vulgarities, and she admires terrorists and dictators. Judged by personality and style alone, she's a leftwing, Palestinian version of Donald Trump. Her values and associations are far worse than Trump's, but aside from that there are striking similarities.

What's distressing is how much of the Left and Right are prone to such lousy choices for their icons. It's the dumbing down of America, to cite a cliché.
