Letter: Trump comparable to 'Flim-Flam Man'

To the Editor:

I recently watched the old movie “The Flim-Flam Man.”

The confident man portrayed in the film makes it clear that the artistry of the con is not simply fooling people. It is in convincing the targets that they are his partners in the scam.

Of course, there is no doubt about who ends up profiting.

The flim-flam man pockets the money, while his would-be accomplices are quite befuddled by what has happened. Being reluctant to admit they have been conned, victims cling tenaciously to the hope that they eventually will get a share of the swag, while the con artist just moves on to his next target.

It is an entertaining scenario, until the flim-flam man sits in the Oval Office.
