Have you ever watched the 2006 movie, “Man of the Year”? It starred Robin Williams who played a satirical host of a political talk show named Tom Dobbs who ran as a populist for President of the United States, and unexpectedly won.
Sound familiar? An entertainer running for president … imagine that.
We are now living the movie with the candidacy of Donald Trump who chose to run as a Republican instead of Independent, as Williams did in the movie. Both play to the populist crowd: immigration, anti-establishment, unscripted, his own man.
