You could then go on to predict four more years of Trump and the further degradation of the human spirit.

I like your twist ending. But how obnoxious has CNN gotten? I mean, really! 24 hours a day of scare tactics to boost their ratings. And they cover Trump’s daily egregious briefings/populist campaign extravaganzas.

Why does it seem impossible for a journalist to risk losing his or her job by firing back at Trump the way he deserves, right to his face in one of those briefings, saying, “But don’t you realize, Mr. Trump, you’re just an object of ridicule? No one in this room takes you seriously even though you’re the president. You’re the vain emperor who’s running around with no clothes on.”

Knowledge condemns. Art redeems. I learned that as an artistic writer who did a doctorate in philosophy. We should try to see the dark comedy in all things.
