President Trump is the Boaty McBoatface of American Presidents: a joke that has gone on far too long! Boaty McBoatface is, of course, what happens when you give the Internet the right to name a research boat (or technically, a submersible attached to a research boat) in order to help raise funds.
Also the other day, there was an article on Comedian Jon Rineman, a writer for Seth Meyers, who wrote the famous joke that Meyers told at the 2011 White House Correspondents dinner, that Meyers assumed, after Trump hinted he might run for President as a Republican, that Trump would be “running as a joke.”
Turns out the joke was on us.
And Rineman has been traumatized ever since.
It appears that the joke may finally be wearing thin. A lot of people are now, in the infamous words of Fannie Lou Hamer, “sick and tired of being sick and tired.” Trump’s presidency isn’t funny anymore (as if it ever was).
And, as of this morning, more people have already voted than either candidate (Donald or Hillary) got in 2016.
And, as of this morning, more people have already voted in Texas then voted in 2016.
Texas, my people!
The evidence suggests that young people (young people!) are coming out to vote in numbers never seen before.
President Trump is — as is well known — desperate to stay in power because, among other things, he is going to be in a boatload of legal jeopardy once he no longer has the legal protection of the presidency.
So, maybe, finally, finally, finally, the joke will be on him!
