Performative barbarism


Americans are to blame for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Binge eating on Thanksgiving goes with binge shopping like savory gravy on garlic mashed potatoes.

The turn to comic book narratives for subject matter bespeaks a dearth of imagination among filmmakers producing for the commercial market.

Through his mocking imitation of the physical disability of a New York Times reporter, Mr Trump is merely tugging at the heartstrings of the thoroughly, morally debased Republican electoral base. His performative barbarism appeals to its inner Attila.

Love will keep us alive

The Republican primary voter is a distinct subset of the American electorate. S/he would support Attila if he vowed to protect  his/her guns and bibles.

Unfortunately, the Republicans on stage last night do appeal to a segment of the American electorate, whose broken syntax and tin foil hat ideas are reinforced by half-understood bible quotes and semi-automatic weapons.

Plebes often fall for the bluster of rich men, falsely identifying themselves with the upper ten.

Fox News is ambivalent about Trump. On the one hand, old Rupe realises Trump will destroy any chance the Republican Party has at retaking the White House. On the other hand, Fox News executives realise Trump is a ratings bonanza. Since the network has always appealed to the lowest common denominator, it is in a real bind.

Trump as Commander In Chief could lead to the first military coup in US history.

During the debate, Hillary Clinton posted a selfie with Kim and Kanye.

Bernie Sanders posted an old selfie with The Weavers.
