ACTUAL HEADLINE IN THE WASHINGTON POST: Ayn Rand-acolyte Donald Trump stacks his cabinet with fellow objectivists.

Would that it were true, but somehow I doubt very much that Rand — who famously proposed a 1962 collection of her anti-Kennedy essays be published under the title “The Fascist New Frontier,” until Bennett Cerf, her editor got an understandable case of cold feet — would have approved of Trump’s cronyism and foreign policies.

UPDATE (FROM GLENN): Lefties always seem especially afraid of Ayn Rand supporters. I think that’s because — at least until recently — Randians were almost the only people on the right who were both unafraid of lefties and willing to call leftism, even in its comparatively mile FDR form, immoral. Both traits can be very triggering.
