Trump May Have Failed Completely Only Once So Far; Cast Should Double Down And Then Some
Hairy? You asked not to be disturbed, but this appears to merit your attention. [rapid neuralink burst of news coverage regarding Trump's reaction to 'Hamilton' cast message to Pence]
Okay, that was goofy.
Do you think Hamilton's cast should apologize since Trump is now in charge?
Of course not. Trump's and Pence's status doesn't change anything.
Because this is still a democratic-style government.
If anything, Trump and Pence have joined those celebrities in the LACK of right to appearing in public without criticism. Now our whole nation can insult them all day every day.
What do you think they should do?
Openly invite the media to examine the threat level to Pence, or, in other words, the Secret Service's response to the actors. Trump hinted that the theater wasn't a 'safe place' for Pence at that time.
The Secret Service did nothing.
Because they are grounded in reality. There was no threat. Everything was safe. The cast was giving Pence a beautiful opportunity to declare that everything would be fine, that they had nothing to fear.
You are indicating a failure of representation.
This is a representational government. If Trump or Pence doesn't represent the country, then they aren't doing their job as elected leaders. Newt was funny when he compared Trump to Thatcher. Trump can't be booted by a vote of 'no confidence.' And Trump is NOWHERE near as tough mentally as Thatcher was. That cast has charisma. They need to point out that lack of a message and start popularizing it. There needs to be proliferation, more of the same.
It needs to escalate, get covered, go viral.
Viral is destructive.
Not when it's a message to our own leaders that they've failed to listen to, failed to do the right thing about, failed to do their JOB about, failed to give the correct indicators . . . [pauses]
An indicators of what?
--That they are representing the country and not just failing to represent anyone but 'their own.' A majority of voters in this country can be wrong about anything, including failing to realize that bigotry is wrong. There are enough people upset about all this that there ARE enough people to out-talk Trump. In the end, they will only be doing what he has proven is acceptable. Bully the airwaves, the t.v. news, the net, the papers, with what they want talked about until he represents them or demonstrates he doesn't have the time to talk about it.
Because the government has to succeed in 'moving forward,' what does this accomplish?
It will remind him not to pick these fights and act like a president. It IS what he agreed to DO.
You are certain that it makes sense?
Yeah, humans have to retain some sense of preserving status quo to make progress in any direction with grace. It's just fear of the unknown. Any backward people fall prey to that. No biggie. What's funny is that Douglas Adams predicted this metaphorically.
You did not list Douglas Adams as a prognosticator.
Mostly he's just funny. I should re-read his work. [shifts neuralink to scan mind of someone reading The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy.]
