The Show is over. Make America Great Again, the most recent made-for-television production starring Donald J. TRUMP & Family, has effectively come to an end. Following on the heels of his 10-year NBC hit reality show Celebrity Apprentice, Make America Great Again has received critical acclaim from millions of demagogue lovers across the land, but ultimately, it’s poll ratings fell flat. Co-starring The Deplorables, a troupe of angry Americans who have been left in the dust by the recent economic recovery, the hit show has only lasted for one explosive, mind-bending season, drawing unprecedented 24/7 media coverage to its slandering, race baiting, fear-mongering, telegenic star.
The denouement of the serial drama, Make America Great Again, is now upon us. Donald TRUMP, the seething protagonist of this tragicomedy, has reached that crucial moment of existential crisis, when the sheer force of mortality is revealed, its gravity crushing, its implications punishing, all pretense of reality cast aside, and madness prevails. To be or not to be, that is the current state of Donald TRUMP, a performance carried to the extreme and pushed over the edge, into the abyss of political misfortune.
Ever since Donald TRUMP made his mephistophelian deal with Stephan Bannon, CEO of Breitbart News Network (truly the devil incarnate if there is ever was), the star of Make America Great Again has descended down a path into the Abyss from which there truly is no return. This unholy alliance confirms TRUMP’s pledge to cross the red line, no holds barred, over the edge of political insanity, into the speeding lane of post reality disintegration, blurring whatever daylight may have once existed between that which is real and that which is not. The new slogan, It’s Us Against the World, promises to wreak TOTAL HAVOC on what little is now left of integrity in the American political system.
As Hurricane Matthew pummels the Atlantic coastline, a different kind of hurricane is ravaging an already turbulent election season. Up until now, Donald TRUMP’s EXtreme antics of celebrity bravura have taken the country by storm. He has artfully segued from the Celebrity Apprentice to his current hit show, Make America Great Again, by blurring our already blurred reality that until now barely separated entertainment and politics. Emerging from his hard-edged improvisatory skills, TRUMP has morphed himself into the unassuming role of the Populist Hero, stirring a tempest of racism and misogyny that has whipped up his supporting cast of the downcast: The Deplorables.
It turns out that the dashing Bon Vivant of the glitzy Manhattan social elite is not exactly the mogul-genius he assured us to be. Despite the super-models, the gilded jets, the spectacular yacht, the towering high rises, the glamorous hotels, and the high roller Atlantic City casinos, TRUMP was hemorrhaging debt as far as the eye can see. That’s right, it turns out that the swingin’ TRUMP had taken one spectacularly foolish journey down the fast lane of the Art of the Deal, blithely racing past the suspension of disbelief, hurtling down, down, down into the Abyss of Massive Write-offs and Tax Deductions.
Very early in the wee hours of the morning, a restless and clearly provoked Donald TRUMP, in the latest episode of his Make America Great Again reality show, fire bombed Tweets over the nation between 3am and 5am: it was a sight to behold.
