A bore, but there is a better word for Trump

To the editor:

I enjoyed Fred Hiatt's analysis of the Trump draw ("The final insult: Trump is a bore," Eagle editorial page, August, 16), but I think the single word that most fully describes Trump is "grandstander."

For me, that evokes every aspect of Donald Trump's personality and should be a caution for anyone who takes him seriously.
