In recent months, it's become a thing online to make fun of the Republican Nominee for President and here, at Will Clark World, oh I suppose that I could write endless blogs about him and get butt loads of traffic. That's what every news outlet is doing whether on line or on TV, right? .. so, really why not join the crowd and drive more traffic here?
But it's pretty cheap n easy low hanging fruit and frankly, like someone who breathlessly wants you to notice them in a bar just a little too much, I just can't bring myself to give him more attention. I think of him like a type of Doctor Who villain - the more attention he gets, the stronger he becomes. So, if we don't pay attention, he'll lose his mojo. I mean, there are plenty of folks who are going to continue, for some odd reason, to give him their attention but mostly, I think, through misguided hatred for Hillary. By the way, don't bother writing endless anti Hillary screeds here or on my FB page - it's tired, I don't care what you think, and surely you must have something better to do with your day, mmmm?
In any event, I have figured that I'm going to make a clear decision to, going forward, simply stop saying the Republican Nominee for President's name. If I really must make a reference to him, maybe "Mr. T" would work.... because, truly, I pity the fool that thinks this guy is Presidential material.
Sadly, the slavish support of his Hitleresque actions only go to underline how far off track we've gone here in America. I don't know if it's Obama's fault, or George W.'s fault, or Clinton or Reagan, or Nixon or the fall of Camelot, but something is most definitely wrong and sad to say, it's just going to get worse before it gets better (it always works like that, right?).
But I feel that I can sum up our national irritation in one sentence: "things aren't going my way so I'll pout and stamp my foot". I kind of feel like the USA is in its 'teen years' phase - the "YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME" in it's maturation. As all parents suffer through this, we will all have to get through this without, hopefully a nuclear war and the end of the world.
Speaking of which, Mike Diva, an LA based visual artist put together this video (below) with what is the most likely ending to a reign of He Who Shall Not Be Named. Or should we call him the Orange Doodle? I'm up for suggestions. And hey, I realize that this is not fun and games, it's literally life or death but if I don't laugh at least a little bit, it'll just all be too much to handle.
Oh well, anyway, take a look at the video and enjoy!
