We learned today that WWE superstar Donald Trump will be nominating WWE co-founder Linda McMahon to head his small business administration, and the news isn’t really that much of a surprise. After all, Trump famously shaved Vince McMahon’s head in the ring during a ‘Wrestlemania’ event a few years back.
Please watch the video above, and just consider for a moment that this is our soon-to-be president. Reflect on the fact that this is where we are as a society. Reflect and weep, or alternately laugh if, like me, you pretty much ceased giving a fuck and just hope the whole thing crumbles.
Is it real? Is this all not some elaborate fiction we’re being presented with to keep us hypnotized? Has political theater become the only ‘bread and circus’ sideshow we need to distract us from the reality of our situations, that we’re a bunch of intellectually numb dolts with no clue and no desire to get one?
Yes, I think that’s a fair synopsis.
Mike Judge’s film Idiocracy gave us a vision of a future world that moment-by-moment seems like it will someday be considered an idyllic vision of ‘what could have been’ compared to the sick and twisted reality of where we’re heading. Personally, I’d feel a little more secure if President Camacho from Idiocracy were about to take office rather than the asshole we’re going to be getting in Trump.
Really though, there’s probably not much of a difference. And don’t think I’m shilling for Clinton either. I’d glad that corrupt scoundrel lost, despite the absurdity of the alternative. We are a stupid society. Excuse we, we are an absurdly stupid society. The sooner we have some major societal collapse, the better we will be, because it will either destroy us or wise people the fuck up.
I really don’t have the energy to write much more. Watch the two embedded videos and tell me if you really see that much of a difference.
