Donald Trump is playing the role of The Mule from Isaac Asimov’s Foundation Trilogy

Anyone making predictions about the outcome of the 2016 presidential race is on a fool’s errand. The existence of a Donald Trump candidacy is a disruptor. It creates such chaos and uncertainty that nothing about the race is predictable.
