Mollie Hemingway: The Top 12 Moments from the Age of Austerity

You'll like this.

The comic John Mulaney has a joke where he describes Donald Trump this way:

At this point, like, Donald Trump is not just a rich man, Donald Trump is almost like what a hobo imagines a rich man to be.

It's like years ago Trump was walking through an alley, and he heard some guy just like, "Oh boy oh boy, as soon as my number comes in, I'll put up tall buildin's with my name on them, I'll have fine golden hair, and a tv show where I fire people with my children."

And Trump was like, "That is how I'll live my life. Thank you, Hobo, for that life-plan."

A similar observation could be made of Obama (who is in fact a rich man, thanks to two autobiographies written before he'd actually done anything, and thanks also to Tony Rezko): Obama is what struggling-to-comfortable progressives think they'd do if they became rich. "Why, if I were rich, I'd have swank parties with Sarah Jessica Parker and Anna Wintour. I'd take $100 million family vacations to Africa, because Multicultural and Teachable Moment. I'd have Paul McCartney and Melissa Etheridge play songs for my birthday, and I'd hang out with Jay-Z and Beyonce. And, whenever I was in doubt, I'd hold a conclave with Oprah and fill my Soul Canteen from her Wisdom Well."
