Trump controls our minds
DONALD Trump sent the world mad this year. Nobody could think straight because, everywhere they turned, there he was, looming over the world like Godzilla rampaging through the downtown districts of our imaginations, knocking things over, sewing chaos.
His opponents on both sides of the Atlantic have spent half the time beating their chests in fury and asking how on earth he made it to the White House, and the other half wondering how they can get him out of it. Impeachment was the buzz word, but he’s now been US President for nearly a year, and there’s no sign of him going quietly.
To be honest, it’s been quite fun to watch this year-long howl of anguish. Cruel, but fun.
If only his enemies could put a fraction of this energy into finding a candidate who can beat him in 2020 instead of wallowing in their pain like masochists rolling naked in a field of nettles.
My own theory is that he’s so fond of tormenting them at this stage that he won’t even run in 2020 at all. He’ll stand aside instead for his daughter, Ivanka. And she’ll win, meaning the first female President will not just be a Republican, but a Trump to boot. His detractors will go loco.
People apparently dream a lot about the Queen, but there’s no doubt The Donald replaced Her Majesty this year in the world’s nocturnal imagination. Even in our sleep, we can’t escape him.
