a: Donald Trump ~
b: the hot girl that you date for a while

What:

"Donald Trump is the epitome of a "summer fling", the hot girl that you date for a while because she's naughty and fun but that you know deep down inside that you'll never take home to meet your parents."

a: Donald Trump ~
b: Silvio Berlusconi

What:

He likens him to Silvio Berlusconi, the freewheeling media magnate who was elected prime minister of Italy four times but was ultimately convicted of tax fraud. Trump and Berlusconi, Zingales adds, “are both very good at talking to the stomach of the people.”

a: Donald Trump ~
b: catnip

What:

"Trump is catnip to the networks, and they stuck with his rambling, incoherent infomercial. That's dangerous for his opponents. How do you ensure that your substantive case breaks through when you're running against the king of entertainment politics?"

a: Donald Trump ~
b: Juan Peron

What:

"The proper comparison is Juan Peron. A charismatic man who never publicly committed strongly enough to any position or ideology, thus creating a very strange and contradicting (and at times explosive) coalition of left and right. He was a guy who had Jewish members of his cabinet while allowing German war criminals refuge in Argentina. It came down to both militant leftists and the far-right supporting him, because everybody had this sense that he was secretly nuestro hombre."

a: Donald Trump ~
b: George Wallace

What:

"Each appeared on the political scene as unlikely candidates for the leader of the free world, both appealed to voters who felt they were being ignored by an out-of-touch political leadership and each brought cheering crowds to their feet with fiery bombast."

The link is worth reading if you're interested in comparing these 2 guys.

a: Donald Trump ~
b: elite fratricide

What:

"So do we have elite fratricide? When a Harvard and Princeton alum like Ted Cruz emerges as a wildly swinging wrecking ball for the entire global economy, you bet we do."

This was written about 2 years ago. Replace Cruz with Trump and you can see that this pattern in full swing.

a: Donald Trump ~
b: Viking, slashing, burning, and laughing

What:

"I suddenly realized that that is Trump's style. He's not a tribal Highlander, celebrated in Scotland's long battle for independence from England, but a Viking, slashing, burning, and laughing at the carnage in his wake. "

a: Donald Trump Ross Perot ~
b: Ross Perot

What:

"The speculation, and that's all it is, is that Ross Perot made a deal with the Clinton camp in the 1992 Presidential election. The deal was run for President on your own money and split the Republican vote. Perot did this and The Clintons won. Perot got government contracts from of the agreement. Apply the same scenario to the Donald Trump in 2015. Trump has business interest in 2 heavily Democratic states, Illinois and New York. There has to be some way they can make it worth his while. "
