Trump Shills Himself on Live TV… What a Surprise.

So it’s about 7:30pm. TV switches on. The president’s talking about fake news again. AWESOME! I don’t normally watch television, but as an (in)active participant of the fake news community, I felt a conviction to watch it.

Within about 10 seconds I was laughing almost hysterically. He gets up on stage and addresses the fake news community by flaunting his wealth in front of them and calling them poor. WHAT A GUY!

Trump takes to the classic high school-lunch table technique of reminding all of his opposing agents that he had “a better education, a nicer house, nicer cars, nicer everything…” Of course this drove the crowd wild.

For some reason there seemed to be a lot more controversy over the fact that he said the word bullshit, which I find a little confusing. Who cares if someone gets up and swears on national television? It’s not like kids get up in the morning and watch the news. What bothers me is the childish and materialistic approach he takes to in response to the media. Entertaining indeed but probably more cut out for reality television than United States President.

What’s next, bragging to all the leaders of third world countries about our technological and societal development? I hope he knows that people who don’t value materialism can’t be the list bit daunted by his boasts. Speaking of which isn’t this supposed to be the land where there’s never a boast or a brag?

This is absolutely incredible.

I can spend 5 minutes listening to punk music and hear more political discourse than in 2 hours of hearing our president speak, what a time to be alive.
