Now You See Me 2 & Presidential Election
Once upon a time, I believed that the job made the man (or, in this case, the woman). I believed that the office of President of the United States had enough safeguards that almost anyone could do the job without causing too much harm. When Ronald Reagan was elected, many thought he was too ignorant of national politics to do a good job. But what does an ignorant yet clever man do? He surrounds himself with really intelligent people who point him in proper directions. And that’s what Ronnie did, for eight years. And now we’re faced with an election between two people that make most Americans very unhappy—Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Clinton, they feel, is too tricky, too manipulative, too untrustworthy, maybe even too dishonest to be president. And then there’s Trump, who is just too Trumpish to be president. He’s ego-maniacal, he’s mean-spirited, he’s racist, he’s almost totally ignorant of what the office is all about, and he’s downright dangerous. What are we going to do in November? Not voting at all is out of the question. Voting for Donald Trump is equally out of the question. That leaves us with Hillary, whether we like her or not. She at least knows what goes on in Washington. She at least has years of political experience as senator, as Secretary of State, as wife of a former president. She at least would be a better choice than the Great Buffoon.
Gary Trudeau has done a number on Trump that seems comically to identify all the uncomical Trumpisms.
