I know that the phrase "what a time to be alive" gets thrown around far too often, but - shit - if the shoe fucking fits. I'm not going to get into my personal feelings on Donald Trump, because the 'Search' bar to your right exists for that very reason. What I will say is that I'm not so sure I'm comfortable having a President that is already being made the butt of jokes in areas of the country that voted him into office. Tennessee might be die-hard fans of the burnt orange but states simply don't get any redder than they were in early November, yet their preeminent college program wasted no time in making light of the fact that the leader of the free world's first order of business was re-defining the word "lie". The only place more conservative than Texas is the marital bed of a Mormon woman, yet their sports team with the whitest fan base is fanning the flames of flat out fabrications by poking fun of the...uhhh..."faulty math" done by Trump's team. The guy has been President for less than a week and multiple organizations that represent the regions responsible for his reign are already using him for comedic material that is generally supposed to appeal to any and all demographics. I don't even think that roasting the POTUS is just for liberals anymore, and it's crazy to say "anymore" considering he's been in office for all of FOUR full days. No one knows what the fuck is going to happen between now and 2020, but - if these attempts at fan interaction are any indication - it appears we're all ready to self-deprecatingly laugh our way through it.
Tennessee Volunteers: C+
Loved the idea, hated the execution.
Dallas Stars: A-
Perfectly timed, and just barely subtle enough to fly right over the heads of people in "Make America Great Again" hats.
