This is an amusing analogy found on the internet that may, or may not, explain why Donald Trump is getting so much traction.
You have been on vacation for two weeks. You come home and your basement is infested with raccoons: Hundreds of rabid, messy, mean raccoons have overtaken your basement.
You want them gone immediately so you hire a guy: A pro. You don’t care if the guy smells, you need those raccoons gone pronto and he’s the guy to do it! You don’t care if the guy swears; you don’t care if he’s an alcoholic; you don’t care how many times he’s been married; you don’t care if he voted for Obama; you don’t care if he has plumber’s crack. You simply want those raccoons gone! You want your problem fixed! He’s the guy. He’s the best. Period.
That’s why Trump.
Yes he’s an ass and an egomaniac. But you don’t care. The country is a mess because politicians suck. The Republican Party is two-faced & gutless. And illegal aliens are everywhere. You want it all fixed!
You don’t care that Trump is crude. You don’t care that he insults people or that he had been friendly with Hillary, that he has changed positions, has been married 3 times, fights with Megyn Kelly and Rosie O’Donnell, or doesn’t know the name of some Muslim terrorist. This country is weak, bankrupt, our enemies are making fun of us, we are being invaded by illegal aliens, becoming a nation of victims. Now every Tom, Ricardo and Hamid is a special group with special rights to a point where we don’t even recognize the country we were born and raised in.
WE JUST WANT IT FIXED!
And this is where it ends up: Trump is the only guy who seems to understand what the people want. You’re sick of politicians, the Democratic Party, the Republican Party, and sick of illegal aliens. You just want this thing fixed. Trump may not be a saint, but doesn’t have lobbyist money holding him back or political correctness restraining him. All you know about Trump is that he has been very successful, is a good negotiator, has built a lot of things, and he’s also not a politician. He’s not a cowardly politician. He says he’ll fix it.
You don’t care if the guy has bad hair.
You just want those raccoons gone.
Out of your house.
