Trump Genesis

Hi! Happy Friday!

The genesis of Trump.

It is no surprise that America wants reality T.V. for politics, at least to the panelists for today's blog post. This blog post is simply a video to watch a prescient panel in a 2008 . It is rather chilling to watch,  especially Hitchen's glass-of-cold-water-in-your-face warning about the totalitarian path that a demagogue like Trump will lead us down.

The video is quite fun and educational fun if you have 45 minutes to watch. The setting is 2008 after Obama clinched the Democratic nomination. The panels predication by description of what new media means is spot on in predicting a Trump candidacy. Trump may be a first, but I guarantee you what he represents has a new norm written all over it. Below are some quotes:
  • "Youtube video needs to be shocking to get viewed." - Trump is shocking.
  • "Celebrity status gets you far these days." - Trump is his own celebrity.
  • "Presidential candidates should start hanging out with Linsday Lohan just for the media attention." - Trump is hanging out with himself.
Trump is his own celebrity, but there was a rumor floating around in June that Trump would invite celebrity Sarah Palin to be his running mate. At this point I would say Palin's tragic media attention is on par with what Lindsay Lohan was back in 2008. Although Trump would be better off picking Kim Khardashian as his running mate, or at least appointing her as his spokesperson.
