Trump -- a true 60's "peacenik"? (updated 2/7, 2/17, 2/26, 2/27, 2/28 2019)

PD fans: Note mention of "public diplomacy" (item no. 16); see also, (1) on peacenik and (2on  "soft power" 

... Or, the Revenge of the Groovy Generation?

1. He got out of the Vietnam-era draft, claiming issues with his feet.

2. He went to prestigious for-the-rich, nearly-all-white upper-middle-class colleges, like so many "rebels" on prestigious USA campuses; and hey, in the sixties, whoever "studied" in college worried about grades (esp if Daddy paid the school bills); he's never "worked" in his life (i.e., had a "serious" 9-to-5 job).

3. He "married" non-AmeriKan foreigners -- his two favorite ladies from Central Europe -- let's all groove together, baby, no matter your national origin; and I luv yr sexy accent/legs; forget about visas; he hires illegal immigrants.

4. He went into 60's-like "sexual liberation," publicized by what the gossip-media-knows-about his relationships with the fair sex.

5. He shows little interest in "classic literature" or complicated/subtle thought, like many baby boomers today preferring the social media to oh-so-boring in-depth "communication." 

6. He worried (evidently still worries) about how long his precious dye-ing (?) hair should be (a 60s male obsession?) [Note the long male head hair in the above '60 "resist" pix]

7. He takes drugs -- well, ok, it's only "Diet Coke."

8. He's against American intervention in Iraq/Afghanistan ("Hey, Hey, LBJ, How many kids did you kill today?").

9. He's skeptical of the American "intelligence community." (Not to speak of the FBI), much like the late 60s cynical media/anti-establishment reaction to "from official government sources."

10. He's also skeptical of the Pentagon and its generals/genitals and their "plans" for maintaining/restoring American "influence"/leadership abroad.

11. He prefers that his youngest son play SOCCER (what kind of "furener" sport is that!) than all-American FOOTBALL ...

12. Isn't he, in his bad me-me-me-why-don't-you-love-ME-first moods, when he tweets away at all hours of the day, basically an anarchistic, screw-you, up-your-ass type of guy (just "read" (smell) his farts [tweets]; pardon the vulgarity -- how else to describe his illiterate missives)? Not hard to imagine him on a bus with "Ken Kesey's LSD-fuelled bus trip [that] created the psychedelic 60's" (as long as his daddy paid for the ride).

13. His elder daughter, a feminist of sorts, married (evidently with his consent) a non-WASP, non-German of origin (whose father was "the son of immigrants from the USSR"). 

14. He likes Russians.

15. True Republicans can't stand him, even if he, as a useful idiot, lowered taxes for the rich.

16. He thinks public diplomacy is pubic diplomacy. (Am I just kidding'?)

17. Breaking News (2/26)! Like sixties icon "Hanoi Jane" Fonda, he's going to Hanoi in search of let's groove-together peace in Asia; in the words (2/27) of his former right-hand man Michael Cohen:
Mr. Trump tasked me to handle the negative press surrounding his medical deferment from the Vietnam draft.
Mr. Trump claimed it was because of a bone spur, but when I asked for medical records, he gave me none and said there was no surgery. He told me not to answer the specific questions by reporters but rather offer simply the fact that he received a medical deferment.
He finished the conversation with the following comment. “You think I’m stupid, I wasn’t going to Vietnam.”
I find it ironic, President Trump, that you are in Vietnam right now.
