4. When I was a kid, I used to watch pro wrestling on TV.

It was so silly, so comical, yet so violent and melodramatic. But even as a person in my early teens, I knew that it was all phony. I knew that when wrestlers would play the victim, then lash out to clobber the opponent when s/he wasn't looking, it was scripted. Trumpy got his public relations chops from pro wrestling. He plays the "poor me" role, blames his opponents for his misfortune, then attacks them with a viciousness that only a sadist can love.

Scripted pro wrestling existed as far back as the early 20th century. My grandfather was a pro wrestler during that time. Were he alive today, he'd see the same scripts being played out in Trumpy's White House that he used in Wyoming, Washington, and California.
