Musical Interlude: "Cult of Personality" by Living Colour

In an August 23rd commentary piece at Politico, Ben Schreckinger described Donald Trump's presidential campaign as a cult of personality. "Trump’s rallies magnify the cult of personality of a would-be leader who promises to save the country through personal talent and integrity so great that they transcend any issue or ideology," he wrote. Other commentators have also used the "cult of personality" language in reference to Trump's campaign.

Now I can't get "Cult of Personality" by Living Colour out of my head.
