Is Trump a "Monster from the Id?"

For those who remember the wonderful sci-fi film Forbidden Planet (1966): one of the themes of the film was a 'Great Machine' built by an advanced alien race that could materialize anything they could imagine. It worked only too well!

What came out was monsters created by their darkest dreams, their hates, fears, their "lust for destruction." and the monsters destroyed them.
