Over the last few days I’ve seen several news stories on Donald Trump’s potential 2012 candidacy for president. What the Goddamn Fuck? The man is not running for president. Period. Zero chance of it happening. He’s just playing a publicity game, a game he plays rather well, but everybody knows this is what is going on. So why is his fledgling candidacy being covered in even a half-way serious tone? The press in this country is, with few exceptions, nearly treasonously bad.
Ok, let’s just say there is some rift in the sky and we all plunge into another universe, a universe just like this one but different enough that Trump does run. Then we will see that there are not enough universes in the, uhm, universe for this sociopath to get nominated by any political party, let alone the Republicans. He owns casinos, has been nearly bankrupt I don’t know how many times, keeps divorcing his wives to marry younger better looking women and believes that shaking hands is repulsive, and that’s not even getting to the bad stuff. Did I mention that he’s a sociopath?
If this is how the press is going to act, I may be against freedom for it.
Also, who the fuck is Faith Popcorn?
It’s a stupid post I know, but when you’re lying in bed flipping around the morning “news” and you see this “story” covered a half dozen times I find it difficult to not be overwhelmed by despair and anger.
