Trump, Less Tru More Rump

The_Apprentice_LogoWhat happened to Larry? Lawrence Lessig, I mean? I guess he wasn’t “Trump” (as in “rump”) worthy. Just think about it. What did Trump do for us? A lot.

It’s a lot more than having the perfect letters for Scrabble.

Trump pushed enough bullies off the stage. Ring a bell? Sure it does. His “The Apprentice” was the only “reality” show I ever turned on back in the day.

Trump apprenticed Scott; he humiliated Jeb (who is up for a comeback, I’m afraid);
he got Veep Biden out of a slump (or at least distracted from his personal tragedy); and he got Carly noticed (OK, let’s face it, she’s not going to become a Veep herself, but at least she tried, though why doesn’t she go find another company to run, that’s what I don’t get). I finally understand the difference between Mario (the Wii game) and Marco (the Floridian with better brown hair).

Don’t worry, I never confused Marco with Ted, since Ted’s hair is irrelevant but his position on the 10th amendment (let alone the 1st or 2nd amendments, given last week’s horrors) is frightening, with his views on federalism being the most frightening of all. But Ted, I’m not worried about you being a showboat, since no male or female who likes shows is going to have their head turned by the likes of you (or your GOP political philosophy).
