Columnist: Are there similarities between Donald Trump and Trent Lott?

Are there similarities between presidential candidate Donald Trump and former ousted Republican Senate majority leader Trent Lott?

Can the republican party rein Donald Trump in or will he become so vile that he will just self-destruct as did former Republican senate majority leader Trent Lott on Dec. 5, 2002…

…Trump actually does remind me of Trent Lott, who ended his career being considered by some as a kind of buffoon and embarrassment to the Republican party. In the early 2000s, Sen. Trent Lott had also become an albatross around the neck of the Republican Party. His culturally insensitive comments made at Strom Thurmond’s 100th birthday party caused a surfeit of woes for the party.
