The Unreality TV Reality World Of Donald Trump

It was bound to happen. In the mostly scripted unreality word of reality TV the notion of one honest to God truth has been made obsolete. Truth is whatever the director thinks produces the greatest entertainment bang for the buck.

Trump discovered years ago that his concept of unreality reality fit perfectly with his natural MO. And now that the time has become fully ripe, he has leveraged his natural gift for maximum flexible truth into becoming president.

Even he must be surprised that the post truth age has been so kind to his flimflam talents.

But there is more.

According to a Politico article: “House Republicans are currently in the process of making lists of regulations that fall within their time frame and could potentially be repealed early next year. One of the major ones they’re eyeing is Obama’s overtime rule that requires companies to pay time-and-a-half to employees who make under roughly $47,000.”

Every time the GOP gains control of the federal government, it plunges the country into depression. The economy booms when money flows to the bottom of social economic order because middle and lower middle class folks are the biggest spenders and thus drive product demand.

But when the GOP gains power it cuts rules that allows Wall Street to drive the nation over a cliff with greedy excessive practices and then straggles the economy by diverting money flow from the masses to a select super rich few who then lock up their windfall gains in overseas bank accounts.

And that my friends is the Donald’s intimate bate and switch — appeal to the working class and reward the wealthy, the unreality of reality world Trump.
