Schmidt, like I said in another thread Trump grew up in an KKK household and did not want to learn in school, instead he learned how the "mob" works with all the tricks to come out from under "the law". Thus you can't fight him unless you have lived on the "street" as well and know their background and tactics.
I like the gang analogy. And agree with the idea that to defeat them, it requires understanding their strengths and weaknesses.
I would disagree that to beat trump, Democrats to become more like trump. Democrats will never beat trump by trying to adopt his methods. Nor will the Democratic party be successful by becoming militant, endorsing hardcore Left Wing wackos who think and act like trump, and are willing to go as low as trump, and lower. Left Wing Wackos just want to save trees, not cut them down for profit, and like trump, how Left Wing wackos succeed is irrelevant to them; use a gun, tell a lie, cheat, do whatever it takes; the means always justify a winning outcome, save the trees or save the dreamers.
Left Wing Wackos = Right Wing Wackos; they just have opposite polarities in there political views. They would love to jail their Right wing political opponents as soon as they take power because in their mind, trump is a political criminal, thus be imprisoned indefinitely.
