You guys remember when Donald Trump first decided to run for President and every stupid thing he said and did was hilarious? It was a time when we could mock him for trying to get Mexico to pay for a wall to keep themselves out and get a laugh whenever he completely FUBARed some sports analogy on the campaign trail. A wonderful period when we could treat politics like the complete and utter joke they have become, and willfully ignore that they could have a bearing on the future of our country. I guess my real question is, can we start doing that again now that it's all but a certainly that Hillary Clinton is going to win the election, or do I have to wait until the second week of November to acknowledge the guilty pleasure I get out of Donald Trump actively sabotaging himself?
I'm sorry, but watching The Donald point to some old white woman (who probably peaks suspiciously through her curtains the entire time the American American gentleman she hired cleans her gutters) holding a 'Blacks For Trump' sign and basically saying to himself "I'm going to draw all the attention TO HER" wasn't an act of ignorance. The man is certainly stupid, but he's not THAT fucking stupid. He just doesn't care. He didn't admit defeat by claiming the entire process was rigged because he felt cheated. He did so because he knew that he already done enough to get exactly what he wanted out of this charade - publicity. You really believe the guy that didn't even prepare for nationally broadcasted debates wants to do the grunt work required of the leader of the free world? Get serious. He's intentionally making a mockery of this election because this election was basically begging to be made a mockery of, but he damn sure ain't doing so to win it.
So sue me. I laughed out loud when Donald Trump just happened to turn around and stare at one of the Golden Girls blatantly representing a people she would never want moving into Mr. Rogers neighborhood, and I don't even feel bad about it because in a few short weeks this intentionally over-the-top comedy routine will finally be an afterthought.
