Peggy Noonan of the Conservative Wall Street Journal has consistently written in the Journal as a conservative sharing her views. Peggy has compared Sarah Palin and Donald Trump, noting they both have ” antic statements, intellectual thinness and general strangeness.”
She notes that “there is no hard constituency in America for political incompetence,” and that is what Trump continues to demonstrate.
I don’t often agree with Noonan, but this time it’s hard to argue.
However, I would add one other similarity. Both seem to use the office for personal financial gain, and seem to lack any interest in serving the people of their state or country.
