Trump is drawing comparisons to L. Ron, but will Hillary favor Scientology as much as Bill did? - 2016-08-22
We hear it all the time. Doesn't Donald Trump remind you of L. Ron Hubbard?
The Daily Beast was one of the first to be overt about it with a fun article and illustration in April. But we've heard it dozens, maybe hundreds of times since then: Trump is like Hubbard. His organization is like Scientology. His followers are bullies just like Scientology's goons.
And yes, all of that may be true. But being "like" Scientology is not the same as having a connection to Scientology. That hasn't prevented many people, some of them our regular readers, from straining mightily to find something solid putting together Trump and David Miscavige's wacky church.
