What’s the difference between Donald Trump and Paul LePage? Hey, Megyn, kiss my butt!

People in Maine may be conditioned to see their chief executive say outrageous things, but it wasn’t always this way.

Now we are stupefied, dazed, anesthetized, but before 2010 we were convinced no pugnacious bully saying outrageous things about “bull semen” stood a chance at the ballot box.

And then Paul “kiss my butt” LePage was elected, and re-elected.

America, beware! Jackass is the new black. Angry chumps lashing out are in.

Donald Trump could be the next president.

And while there’s striking similarity between the “best of” quotes of Maine Governor Paul LePage and GOP contender Donald Trump, there’s one major difference.

Paul LePage is not a sexist pig.
