The Trump Test

Obviously Donald Trump is the exact response to have to answer someone who states that what the USA needs is a president who is a highly successful businessman.

Then there is Dov Charney of American Apparel also.

And not mentioning any names, but if CEOs are picked on the basis of short-term return to shareholders, then many CEOs will be psychopathological items that lay off thousands of workers, which acts are regarded as masterful strokes of business genius.

To be good in one field does not guarantee success in another, nor are the talents for being the executive of a large country the same as those for being the executive of a business. For that matter, what it takes to be successful in one business is not necessarily what it takes to be successful in a different business.

Furthermore, it is one thing to speak your mind and be a straight talker, and quite another to broadcast utter trash just because it comes from your mind.  And one cannot make a silk purse from a sow's ear, no matter how preciously the popular media may talk about it.
