So it turns out the Apprentice POTUS is just as much of an ignorant blowhard when the cameras are off. Go figure.
It makes a kind of pathetic sense: Trump is more a reality TV show president than an actual one, and from what I’ve seen, being an insufferable ass is a defining trait for reality show contestants, or at least the memorable ones.
And that’s probably the extent of DJT’s moral and intellectual development. Reality television. Triumph of the Tiny Intellect and Small Mindset.
The election is less left versus right than modern versus medieval. Possibly the only surprise so far is that I haven’t heard anyone offer thoughts-and-prayers for COVID victims, though that could be because they’re in denial (fewer tests).
Meanwhile, reality television turns out to be different from reality itself. If Trump continues to ignore this, and all indications are he will — after all, he’s lived his entire life as if it was a television show — reality will bite.
Let’s hope so.
