DONALD TRUMP: A CHARACTER CREATED BY AYN RAND!

I agree: The character in "The Fountainhead" that Trump reminds me of  is Gail Wynand, a man who will give the public what it really, REALLY wants in 2017: A Second American Revolution!

"But when actual fans of The Fountainhead think of Donald Trump, they are more likely to think of the publishing baron Gail Wynand. (A man, not a woman; it’s a somewhat old-fashioned Irish male name.) Wynand has risen to fame and fortune by running a lowbrow, muckraking newspaper that appeals to the lowest common denominator—an early precursor of “reality TV.” And there’s no product he sells harder than himself and his own gaudy lifestyle: the big mansion, the parties full of famous people, scandalous affairs with beautiful women."


Donald Trump is like a character from the Ayn Rand novels he says he loves. But he's one of the villains.
