“What kills me is, so many people called — I mean, the office the next day, people … I’m not kidding you. And he’ll probably be mad at me for saying this, but like, Trump called, and was like, ‘Did something happen to Vince?’ It’s just the magic of television, you know what I mean?” - Triple H
For the sake of my own sanity I am going to choose to believe that the President-elect of the United States of fucking America was kidding when he asked Triple H about Vince McMahon's livelihood after a limousine that was made to look like a multi-billionaire was in it blew up live on television. Sorry for being a truther here, but I don't want to live in a world where someone that makes actual decisions that could effect my life didn't fully grasp that wrestling was fake during his adulthood.
That said, is it that hard to believe that he didn't? I mean, Donald Trump just ran - and I can't believe I am going to say this - a wildly successful campaign to become leader of the free world based almost entirely on the premise that whatever gets the loudest reaction is what he believes in regardless of authenticity of it. 'The Donald' basically is a professional wrestler and our country if essentially a bunch of venues packed with millions (......and millllllions) of mildly inebriated people that just want to be entertained by hook or by crook. Here's a shocking revelation for ya. You wouldn't even feel comfortable saying that Donald Trump hasn't called Hillary Clinton a "jabroni" (while ever-so-eloquently touching his pointer finger to his thumb) throughout the last six months because that sounds very much like something he would say while pandering to a bunch of Middle Americans as they pumped their fists through the holes in their Hulk Hogan cut-offs. The guy is a walking, talking wrestling promo, so who am I to say - with complete and total confidence - that he understands the difference between a soap opera and reality?
Again, I'm like 90% sure that Donald Trump never thought that Vince McMahon literally got blown to smithereens in the name of ratings, but that 10% is more of a cause for concern than it was when it was next to Trump's name in the Presidential polls.
