What is going on in the United States in 2016 when it comes to politics? I have watched Presidential campaigns and voted in Presidential elections for many election cycles. I have also seen many versions of comedy parody over the years and I am convinced that Donald Trump is perpetrating a grand, nationwide political parody in the United States with his Presidential campaign, in other words, we are all being punked!
The moment I realized Trump was punking the nation was when he emphatically asserted multiple times that President Obama and Hillary Clinton were the co-founders of ISIS and then a few days later he stated he was being satirical. Trump’s string of outrageous statements from building an almost 2,000 mile border wall, second amendment people stopping Supreme Court appointments and banning an entire religion from the United States, make no sense. Trump is doing the equivalent of a mass dial prank phone call to over 300 million Americans and millions of people are still playing along thinking his campaign is legitimate. Some of you may be asking if we are being punked, when will the guy jump from behind a fake tree and let us in on the joke and what is Trump getting out of the entire charade?
Trump is running a grand social experiment and exposing the fault lines in the nation along racial, economic and social factors. Trump is trying to determine how outrageous he can get and how far he can go before his supporters and the Republican Party reach a breaking point and pull the plug on his candidacy. Trump surrogates are performing triple back flips on live television trying to justify his senseless statements. The strange thing is that Trump himself is jumping out and shouting ‘You’ve been punked’ every time he says just kidding about some over the line statement he made previously.
Trump has raised campaign funds he is not spending and has virtually no on the ground organization in any states, so is he doing what it takes to win a Presidential race, no he is not. Donald Trump, do us a favor, if you will not get serious about running to be the President of the United States, stop it and get out.
