Donald Trump / Andrew Jackson

I dunno whether Gerson is right that Trump has chosen a hero... But for no very interesting reason, I did find myself thinking the other day: well...he's better than Jackson...  (I continue to think that the Dems might maybe want to re-think the whole Jefferson-Jackson day thing...what with Jackson being a genocidal maniac and all... MO Dems now call it the Truman dinner instead of the J-J dinner, I think. Though, given that HST dropped The Big One on Japan, I expect that to be challenged in my lifetime.)
   Anyway...it's not that Jackson didn't have certain admirable qualities. But overall, I'd say he's not exactly a guy you want to heroify really.
