I’m mostly uninterested in what kind of person a politician is, and much more interested in the policies they implement.
I couldn’t care less about Trump personally. I don’t know him. The fact that he gives every appearance of being a boorish prick is insignificant next to his terrible polices. In fact, Trump had an opportunity with me - I’m all for the transgression of “norms”, particularly ceremonial ones that are a waste of time. If he doesn’t want to attend ceremonies, or welcome scouts and basketball teams into the Oval Office or pardon turkeys I’d be fine with that. Instead, the norms he’s chosen to transgress are things like banning reporters from briefings and communicating with the world via Tweet. That, and implementing brainless and harmful policies.
I don’t care what kind of person he is outside of criminal behavior (and it may come to that, as we know). He could be the most offensive person in the world, but if he implemented good policy that would be great. We’ve had other presidents who I probably wouldn’t have liked personally, who have also implemented good policy.
Same goes for Hillary Clinton. I don’t know her personally, and I’m not likely to. But I have reason to suspect she would have implemented better policy.
