Nowadays, I still read the newspaper most everyday. I skim past a lot of articles that are national politics in nature. I’ve had my fill of President Trump’s shenanigans and have given up wondering why he is still the president. There isn’t anything that he does or has done that surprises me. What does surprise me, though, is the number of people who apparently idolize this poor excuse for a human being.
In today’s newspaper, there was an article about Twitter doing a crackdown on “bots,” which has apparently netted some live users in the process. The crackdown apparently failed to consider that there are live people who are, in some cases, individually sending hundreds of tweets a day. The article highlighted one woman, who was described as a 70-year-old grandmother and who spends 14 hours a day on Twitter while watching Fox News.
So, my hypothesis is that this woman, along with a lot of other folks, must be living in a parallel universe. Nearly everything that the President has said or tweeted is demonstrably false or an exaggeration. In that parallel universe, this either isn’t happening or it just doesn’t matter. Maybe this is why it is so hard for me to understand. The pro-Trump folks are in one universe and I am in another.
If you are with me in same universe, you are probably wondering as I am about when the other universe will collapse. Maybe it will never collapse. Maybe this is the new reality. I have given up worrying about it. My only consolation is that my universe makes sense and the other one doesn’t.
