A prediction from 2012 come true
In February 2012 I wrote:
Romney is constantly criticized for being “uncomfortable” with his wealth, but I see that as one of his redeeming quality [sic]. If Donald Trump were running for president, when asked about his wealth he would use that as an opportunity to brag about how rich he is.
Indeed Trump did brag about how rich he is, and it was huge turn-off to the elites (along with a lot of other low-class Trump behavior) but it turns out that the proles found his low-class bragging to be much more authentic than Romney’s discomfort.
