ABC’s ‘The View’ Co-Host: Trump’s Appeal Fueled by ‘Self-Hatred’

Monday on ABC’s “The View,” the panel opined on Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump and attempted to determine what is behind the real estate mogul’s appeal when it comes to GOP voters.

Co-host Michelle Collins speculated Trump’s strategy straight out of “The Game” by Neil Strauss.

“I have a theory about this and it hit me this morning,” Collins said. “You know as a woman if you’re at a bar and a guy comes up and insults you, it’s called ‘negging.’ There’s a whole book about it by this guy called ‘The Game’ … When he insults you, you think he must have something great going on.”

“[T]his is my theory with Trump,” she added. “The more negative stuff he says, the more he makes us feel terrible about our country and races and people with disabilities. In a weird way I think a lot of people are drawn to him. It seems to be working and I don’t understand why but it comes from a self-hatred, I think.”
