The Trump Reagan Parallel that everyone is missing

You bet­ter sign those, they’re the ones pay­ing your salary.

Jimmy Stew­art to Raquel Welch

One of the things that has dri­ven foes of Don­ald Trump, par­tic­u­larly con­ser­v­a­tive ones, crazy has been his will­ing­ness to com­pare him­self to Ronald Reagan.

Despite this anger a com­par­i­son between the two is quite apt and the rea­son is quite sim­ple. Both men have their back­grounds in the ser­vice industry.

While some might not under­stand it the movie indus­try is in fact a ser­vice indus­try. A per­son in the enter­tain­ment indus­try pri­mary func­tion is to be able to please the gen­eral pub­lic, and while in today’s enter­tain­ment indus­try that is often ignored in Ronald Rea­gan day both the stu­dios and the actors went to great pains to sat­isfy their cus­tomer base.

It is for this rea­son that Ronald Rea­gan was called “The great communicator”.

Don­ald Trump, while a builder, is also the owner of hotels, clubs and was the star of a TV series.

In all of these sit­u­a­tions Mr. Trump under­stands that his suc­cess relies on pleas­ing the pub­lic, the pub­lic that stays at his hotels, the pub­lic the plays at his golf courses and the view­ing audi­ence that watched his show.

This per­spec­tive on “keep­ing the cus­tomer sat­is­fied” while cel­e­brated by Simon and Gar­funkel has not been cel­e­brated by the major par­ties, who treat their cus­tomer base like suck­ers, or by the MSM which treats their cus­tomers like a bunch of idiots to be tol­er­ated in the best tra­di­tion of Basil Fawlty.

Don­ald Trump is giv­ing the peo­ple what they want, or put more sim­ply he is com­mu­ni­cat­ing with the vot­ers on the sub­jects and the con­cerns that they actu­ally have.

In other words he’s prov­ing him­self a “great communicator”

Come to think of it as I recall the MSM spent a lot of time talk­ing about Ronald Rea­gan as a gaffe machine who would put all of our rela­tion­ships in danger.

How about that!

Jimmy Stewart to Raquel Welch

One of the things that has driven foes of Donald Trump, particularly conservative ones, crazy has been his willingness to compare himself to Ronald Reagan.

Despite this anger a comparison between the two is quite apt and the reason is quite simple. Both men have their backgrounds in the service industry.

While some might not understand it the movie industry is in fact a service industry.  A person in the entertainment industry primary function is to be able to please the general public, and while in today’s entertainment industry that is often ignored in Ronald Reagan day both the studios and the actors went to great pains to satisfy their customer base.

It is for this reason that Ronald Reagan was called “The great communicator”.

Donald Trump, while a builder, is also the owner of hotels, clubs and was the star of a TV series.

In all of these situations Mr. Trump understands that his success relies on pleasing the public, the public that stays at his hotels, the public the plays at his golf courses and the viewing audience that watched his show.

This perspective on “keeping the customer satisfied” while celebrated by Simon and Garfunkel has not been celebrated by the major parties, who treat their customer base like suckers, or by the MSM which treats their customers like a bunch of idiots to be tolerated in the best tradition of Basil Fawlty.

Donald Trump is giving the people what they want, or put more simply he is communicating with the voters on the subjects and the concerns that they actually have.

In other words he’s proving himself a “great communicator”

Come to think of it as I recall the MSM spent a lot of time talking about Ronald Reagan as a gaffe machine who would put all of our relationships in danger.

How about that!
