Now understand this is not something easy to do especially when we admit none of us at A&G are trained mental health specialists, so often like any one else's opinion, its just conjecture
But someone on the staff presented the 'Home Alone' comparison and once explained it made a lot of sense and we believe it will to you the reader as well..
Here is some word for word dialogue from the movie from the brief scene at the beginning where the Home Alone boy, Kevin McAllister is looking out the window with his brother Buzz and a friend at the neighbor next door as he shovels salt on his driveway (page breaks are ours to help make reading smoother.)
"Check it out! old man Marley," says Buzz.
The three boys run to the window.
"Who is he?" asks the boy with glasses.
Outside they see an old man drag a metal garbage can down a snow covered walk. He carries a metal shovel in his free hand.
"You ever hear of the South Bend Shovel Slayer?" asks Buzz.
"That's him,. Back in'58 he murdered his whole family and half the people on the block with the snow shovel. Been hiding out in this neighborhood ever since."
"Well, if he's the Shovel slayer, how come the cops don't arrest him?"
"Not enough evidence to convict. They never found the bodies, but everyone around here knows he did it. And it will just be a matter of time before he does it again."
The old man shovels snow off the path, then uses the shovel to spread salt on the walk. Kevin is frightened.
"What's he doing now?"
"He walks up and down the street every night salting the sidewalks."
"Maybe he's trying to be nice."
"No way. See that garbage can filled with salt. that's where he keeps his victims. The salt turns the bodies into mummies."
Kevin becomes terrorized.
"Mummies," he says.
The old man looks up from his work and sees the three boys watching him. They quickly pull the drapes across the window. The old man continues to stare up at the window.
[ Buzz creates a story about that old man that causes him to become the source of terror and an antagonist in the mind of Kevin. This fear Kevin must overcome before he confronts the real villains of the story. This also setups the audience because it misdirects their beliefs and expectations. They, like Kevin, believe that the old man is the real villain of the story. ]
Toward the end of the film Kevin and the old man happen to be in the local church at the same time and the old man wishes Kevin a Merry Christmas which breaks the ice and Kevin ultimately realizes he was 100% wrong about his neighbor who ends up ultimately rescuing him from the Real baddies
Complete total bullshit but Hillary was very successful
But do not forget that not only 'low educated' white males voted for Trump as the media keeps venomously pushing, but educated white males as well, and women and blacks and Hispanics and Asians, and Jewish people and Muslims and even gay people..
His victory tent is much more diverse and representative of America than the bastards on the left will ever give him or the GOP credit for.
We much rather Trump be a hated President than a loved or respected former candidate like Romney and McCain ended up
Don't you agree?
