The news outlets are racing about like their hair is on fire.
The President of the United States has posted a video parody from Wrestlemania 23 (2007). In the original video, Donald Trump uses a clothesline move to knock down the WWE president Vince McMahon. In the altered video, the CNN logo is superimposed on Mr. McMahon’s features.
Ten years younger and looking quite fit, Trump walks like a champion. But ten years older, he is taking on CNN single-handed, and with a bare-fisted Twitter account.
What do I think about this? One word. Refreshing.
It is refreshing to have a negotiation shark for a President.
It is refreshing to have a man who is not an attorney, nor concerned with the latest polls.
It is refreshing to see a man who finds himself a David facing Goliath and capable enough to take a smooth stone and a slingshot to challenge his personal enemy.
But most of all, I find it refreshing to see a man so comfortable in his own skin, with such a strong ego, that he can take a bit of humor and theater from a decade ago and transplant it into the ring in which he is now fighting.
Here is the question. As an American, does the POTUS has the right to freedom of expression?
Here is a second question. What is the I.Q. of those who cannot discern the satirical aspects of parody? Let the gerbils race along on their wheels. I choose not to join them.
The President walks like a champion. I kind of like that quality in a man.
