The American Circus
Republican presidential candidate and rich boy Donald Trump has a long history with professional wrestling. The phony, scripted, snarling world of bloviating wrestlers has become a cheap metaphor for the US electoral arena. Trump has learned from wrestling how to appeal to the American working class with meaningless emotion and snide remarks disguised as political program.
Part of me still wants to maintain that the whole Republican circus is also intended to make Hillary Clinton look good to the public. The oligarchy wants her as president so that she can do like Obama has done - keep the wars going, force austerity budgets and keep the liberals under control.
