I'm embarrassed to admit this, but there's a certain perverse attraction to witnessing the death of truth and with it, the end of democracy. It's like a macro version of slowing down to see a car crash. But in this case the adrenaline rush comes from watching a herpetic flimflam artist shock the history monkey. And just to make it even more titillating, our best hope to save the day is an eighty year-old slab of beef jerky from Arizona and his trusty sidekick, Scarlett O'Hara.
These type of 'vanity' comments \cards are written by Chuck Lorre. The comments appear during the end credits of shows he produces such as The Big Bang Theory.
This one is from a few months ago. Lorre is saying that the public and media have a morbid fascination with trump as he proceeds to tear down 200+ years of democracy, and nobody in the republican leadership has the backbone to call him out, except John McCain (Beef Jerky) and Lindsey Graham(Scarlett O'Hara).
As we have witnessed for ourselves, trump can say\do pretty much anything and nobody blinks anymore. In another thread I posted a link to Marc Maron comedy routine where he talks about filling Grand Canyon with trash, and people are waiting for the punch line because with trump, it seems logical that he might actual support the absurd idea. Absurd = new normal. As a stand up comedian, its hard to be more absurd than trump is every day, with everything he says\does. People tune in the news to be entertained by trump's reckless behavior and stupidity.
