Trolling Trump

Donald Trump was relatively harmless as a TV celebrity and franchiser. However, as independent journalists have said, we live in a post-factual society. We do not care about substance. And if Mr Trump is elected President of the United States, the consequences of that would be what we deserve for gaping at vacuous, self serving people on social media. Mind you, thousands of people ridicule them on a daily basis but many thousands more worship them. While we were fast asleep, he came to represent what we want in our leaders: Nothing.
