A film script of the Trump presidency written ten years ago would have been rejected as just plain unrealistic, impossible and dumb, yet here the nation sits trapped in a doomed reality show with Trump as president.
Help isn’t coming from the United Nations or the Hague. As for the FBI? There are good people and bad people on both sides. However, James Comey seemed to have destroyed the FBI's credibility when he announced a second investigation into Hillary Clinton two weeks before the presidential election. He remained silent about the ongoing investigation into Donald J. Trump.
It was as though Comey were a magician wearing a top hat and black cape. He removed the hat, said some magic word, a poof of smoke followed, and he pulled Trump out of his hat.
And the US is stuck in this dismal film script only Quentin Tarantino or Guy Ritchie would possibly take on. No way it could be a Disney film, because it stings like Scorsese.
Maybe Lin Manuel Miranda could rap it into an entertaining musical. Look what he managed for Hamilton. Not that Alexander Hamilton resembles Donald Trump.
Scrap the doomed and rejected film script of above, and recall the film, Lifeboat, with Tallulah Bankhead. In a current remake, if you and one other person were survivors, who would you rather survive with Donald Trump or Mitt Romney? You know that if Trump hadn’t already sunken the lifeboat, he would quickly throw you overboard. Right?
Mitt Romney would make a sail out of his white shirt, fasten it to an oar, make a fishing line out of a shoe lace, using a button as a lure, and in one hour, be preparing fresh sushi. He would also know how to use his wrist watch to contact a satellite and GPS the lifeboat to a quick rescue. After all, he’s the father of Obama Care. Didn’t you know?
Presently, Mitch McConnell, Chief Justice John Roberts, William Barr, Giuliani, Pompeo and the entire US Republican Senate and House are already in Trump’s lifeboat. How do you suppose they’re going to survive?
