Worst Appeals To Authority*

Recently on Facebook there was a picture of the five living presidents with a comment like none of these folks think Trump can do the job.  Ignore for the discussion the truth of the report.  It is a bizarre way to attack The Donald.  The reason that folks are voting for The Donald is that they think that most or all of those five have failed.  Oh, and one of them has a wife that is a presidential candidate.  So, why would folks take advice from these five folks?  We are big fans of W but he is unlikely to be at the top of other lists.

* We are pretty sure we are borrowing this from Taranto but we can’t find a recent example on Best of the Web.

Trump has lots of weaknesses but you need to find a line of attack that resonates.  This one does the opposite.
