A Staged Reality

Donald Trump is a product of reality TV. However, reality TV is simply a staging of scenes to make it look like reality, when it really is just the product of the mind of the inventor. Trump’s presidency is exactly the same with his screaming “fake news” when real news does not correspond with his staged reality. An American public which is entertained more than it is informed can easily slip into the illusion of Trump’s vision of what is true due to his ability to entertain. When you consider that an analysis of his statements over the first nine month reveals that 1318 of his “truths” prove to be false what will happen down the line when his policies based on invented truths meet reality? His base probably won’t know the difference, but let’s hope that the majority of Americans do.
