Using the Analogy Of Which Sibling You Would Choose as the Executor of Your Will to Persuade the Undecided in this Election

Maybe this will be helpful to those seeking to persuade those seriously thinking about voting for Trump.

Imagine you are a person with teenage kids, and you have to decide whom to name in will as your executor.  For various reasons you know that the person is likely to actually have to play the role.  Your lawyer says to name only one.  There are now only two possibilities.  Your brother and your sister

They are are very very different.

You find your older sister more than a little irritating.  She tends to know what is best for you, and when you catch her being wrong, she tends to wriggle a bit.  In fact it is joke in the family.  She has been very successful, and you resent it a bit.  She is a bit obsessive about secrecy.

You also have a brother.  He can be charming and makes a lot of promises, most of which he does not keep.  Indeed he makes totally inconsistent promises (he will be there for Christmas with two different branches of the family in California and Alabama.)

When caught in a lie he simply denies making it, to the point that no one really takes him seriously, but it is sort of refreshing in a family in which everyone else is super careful before saying anything.

Then there is the matter of the loan that he never paid back properly, although he insists that at the time everyone agreed with the final payments.

There is also the fact that he jokes about a disabled niece,

He wants to move quickly to evict from a house the family owns, a woman with kids whose husband was abusive and is now in jail.  The woman is behind on the rent, but trying.

One of the your kids likes his bluntness (it appeals to his need to rebel.)  Your daughter on the other hand, finds him insulting.

He tends to hang out with people you remember as bullies from high school.

You get the picture — its not a hard choice now, is it?

Could this be made into a funny TV ad?  Or an SNL skit?

Please add any additional appropriate family characteristics in the comments.  Particularly those that would fit the sister, to show how minor any issues with her are by comparison.
