119 137 | CNN Pundit compares Donald Trump to George Wallace (Kalamazoo, MI shooting related)


Recall the Kalamazoo, MI shooting was a tribute to Taxi Driver, the film, and the character Travis Bickle played by Robert De Niro, was a fictional retelling of Arthur Bremer, the man who plotted to assassinate Richard Nixon and George Wallace.  More specifically, he plotted to assassinate Presidential candidate George Wallace in Kalamazoo, MI.

Kalamazoo, is also where Checker Cabs were originally made, which is what De Niro's character drove in Taxi Driver.  If you've never seen Taxi Driver, the film is set in a Presidential Election year, much like this year...

Above, it was Professor Julian Zelizer who was comparing Trump to Wallace because as he put it, they're both bigots.  Of course Donald Trump, as ridiculous as it is, is a front runner for President.

Professor = 7+9+6+6+5+1+1+6+9 = 50/68
Julian = 1+3+3+9+1+5 = 22
Zelizer = 8+5+3+9+8+5+9 = 47
Professor Julian Zelizer = 119/137 (137, the 33rd Prime)
