Don’t want Trump, but the anti-Trump hysteria is pathetic


From CNBC here:

Not only is a Donald Trump presidency very possible, it’s also not all that much to worry about, scholar and author Nassim Taleb told CNBC’s “Power Lunch.”

Taleb said Trump is not as “scary” as people make him out to be.

“In the end, Trump is a real estate salesman,” Taleb said. “When you elect real estate salespeople to the presidency, they’re going to try deliver something.”

Because of that, Trump probably won’t do anything apocalyptic, Taleb said.

The author further said he is against the two-party system and is voting for neither Trump nor Hillary Clinton. He said, however, that whoever wins won’t make nearly as much of a difference as people think.

This is called perspective and having a rational discussion.  Contrast this with the hysterical emails blowing up my inbox regarding the end of civilization and what not.  It doesn’t mean I want Trump, he’s an asshole and Clinton is an asshole of a completely different type.
