He’s the man of minute
He’s the man of every second
Like a trusted confidant, he’s always there when you need him. In my incredibly recent post about blogging, I talked about how many successful blogs seem episodic in nature. Because they are. And Trump is perfect for the little screen. He’s provided the basic framework of his personality. Events are then combined in slightly different ways to give you that quick vaccine of novelty against momentary boredom. “Please inject me with more novelty.” That’s the mindset. Poor impulse control from the entertainer begets poor impulse control from the audience.
Well, to be fair, that kind of problem was a pre-existing condition, but Trump amplified it to a degree. Now we watch and wait, only to pontificate.
Bannon was the shadow president burning everyone’s lips. Now it’s Kushner sliding into the role of puppeteer. James Comey was sacked, but he’s the quiet martyr that lives on. Essentially short-lived names embroiled in controversy.
Boy. I wonder what the series finale will be like.
