I know the Friday Night Think Tank has been closed for a long time, but it’s a gorgeous night, Def Leppard is in concert across the river, and I thought it would be a perfect night to reopen the place and fill it with Deep Thoughts.
It’s been a very long week for me, and I’m glad that it’s finally over. Who’s up for a little light philosophy as the Heavy Metal blasts in the background?
Nothing makes me unwind more than putting on my toga and just letting the Deep Thoughts flow…
This week’s topic: Are we hopelessly Trumped? Can the worst case scenarios really be that horrendous? I mean one man can’t bring about the Apocalypse all by himself, can he?
I don’t know what to think anymore, Modern Philosophers. This all started out as a ridiculous prank and publicity stunt that lent itself to funny blog posts and an incredible number of late night monologue jokes.
I figured I’d milk the easy Trump humor for a couple of months and then he’d fade away and leave the Republican Presidential nomination to one of the actual politicians.
How did it ever get this far? How is Donald Trump the Republican nominee?
Of course, as easy as it is to believe that Trump would be a horrible President, is it even possible that he can actually be that bad? Doesn’t our political system prevent one branch of the government from having too much power? Wouldn’t people step in to shut down Hurricane Trump before it caused too much destruction?
And what about the man himself? He can’t really believe all the nonsense that spews from his mouth. If he were elected President, he’d tone it down and act like a normal human being with common sense and morals, right?
It’s a tough one to call, but as frightened as I am of Future President Trump, something inside me tells me that America won’t turn into a Mad Max style wasteland after Trump spends a few years in the White House. We did survive George W. Bush if you recall…
What do you guys think?
In this week’s column on The Good Men Project, I take a deeper look at what might be going on inside Trump’s head. Originally entitled “What If Trump Just Needs A Hug?“, it boldly goes where no one else dare tread. Can we just hug it out with Trump?
