The Donald Trump presidency is 9/11 part two electric boogaloo.

I think Donald J. Trump is the most important president in history

Donald J. Trump

Donald J. Trump is a catastrophic event that the world rallies around without having to sacrifice the nicest two buildings in Manhattan and 2,996 souls to do it. And, unlike 9/11, it's all domestic! No really new wars, no instances of the world coming together in support of our loss before becoming a rabid junkyard dog, tricking our closest allies and our own people into invading a sovereign country that had nothing to do with September 11th, Iraq, and then invading Afghanistan, and having our general way with the Middle East for over a decade. 

Trump is the best thing to ever happen to America! Look how activated people are, but towards making America better and not just smiting Islam! God bless Donald J. Trump! Plus, Trump's also revealed to me which ones of my "smart" friends are actually easy-to-manipulate zombie sheep who are probably going to have heart attacks over how much they hate him. And how much they believe that the world is going to end in 12 years (or is it 11 now?) and, in response to him, I know who are fair-weather friends, complete nutcases, who are willing to kill everyone on the planet in order to get their way (which is never a good sign, that's what all the Evil People are willing to do).

Plus, the reaction to the Donald J. Trump presidency has single-handedly turned 2019 into 1969 (everybody's making that comparison these days) and has activated Socialism as an actual choice for Progressives and even some Democrats.

As May Day approaches, International Workers Day, a day that was invented in America by the Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions in 1884 Chicago and then became a holiday on May 1, 1889, we must remember that Democratic Socialism was born in America and was also summarily executed by Americans opposed to Labor Unions. May 1 was renamed Law and Order Day and Labor Day was moved to the first Monday in September. American Socialism thrived after the 1848 revolutions in Europe drove German immigrants to the United States and their socialist ideas with them. These ideas influenced workers and labor unions throughout America through the 50s when the Second Red Scare and McCarthyism basically killed the movement. While there were socialist resurgences in the 60s and 70s, the Reagan era pretty much offered a coup de grâce to most of America's guilds and labor unions. 

In response to calls of "he's not my president," there are more women and women of color and non-cisgender men and women in Congress than ever before and the lineup for presidential hopefuls for Presidency as Democrats look more like the United Colors of Benetton ads 35-years later. Plus, more women, women of color, and queer men and woman have achieved office in State and Local elections than ever before. And, what do you know? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders aren't at all afraid of the S-word anymore—Socialism—even though they do make sure that they keep the words Democrat, democracy, democratic, and capitalism nearby so that nobody's brain goes straight back to Pinkos and Reds and Commies. 

That's why I think everyone should see Donald J. Trump is the most important president in history—but they won't, because that would be counterproductive to the cause. It's a Catch-22!

“There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one's safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle. "That's some catch, that Catch-22," he observed. "It's the best there is," Doc Daneeka agreed.” ― Joseph Heller, Catch-22

Two weeks prior to reelection, the United States president lands in the middle of a sex scandal. In need of outside help to quell the situation, presidential adviser Winifred Ames (Anne Heche) enlists the expertise of spin doctor Conrad Brean (Robert De Niro), who decides a distraction is the best course of action. Brean approaches Hollywood producer Stanley Motss (Dustin Hoffman) to help him fabricate a war in Albania -- and once underway, the duo has the media entirely focused on the war.Or, rather, the moment the Anti-Trump Movement turned on to the fact that the entire thing is a pantomime instead of being an actual Existential Crisis, then all the air would go out of the movement and it would, itself, extinguish, which is extremely counter-productive. Without a constant threat there wouldn't be a constant heat; and, without a constant heat, there wouldn't be the sort of boil that would force all the frogs from their respective frying pans of complacency. So, there's very little incentive to ever let anyone in on the joke. Or, rather, that the tail's wagging the dog. Sadly, Wag the Dog, a brilliant movie that explores this theme perfectly well, starring the most anti-Trump actor, Robert De Niro, who, in this 1997 political comedy, played spin doctor Conrad Brean who is either a Steve Bannon or Roger Stone-type, though he's much more discrete and Bannon and Stone are probably bit players themselves. 

Besides, I am pretty sure this entire thing is just a Reality Show that's based on a Pay Per View Wrestling Event wherein Donald J. Trump plays the Heel and everyone else tries to fight and beat him. Once he plays the narrative out, he'll be written out of the Wrestling Series. However, his existence brings all the bank to Cable News, Broadcast News, Netflix Comedy Specials, Late Night Shows, Newspaper subscriptions, etc, etc, etc. Donald J. Trump is the good that lays Golden Eggs for everyone! According to Wikipedia:

In professional wrestling, a heel (also known as a rudo in lucha libre) is a wrestler who portrays a villain or a "bad guy" and acts as an antagonist to the faces, who are the heroic protagonist or "good guy" characters. To gain heat (with boos and jeers from the audience), heels are often portrayed as behaving in an immoral manner by breaking rules or otherwise taking advantage of their opponents outside the bounds of the standards of the match. Others do not (or rarely) break rules, but instead exhibit unlikeable, appalling and deliberately offensive and demoralizing personality traits such as arrogance, cowardice or contempt for the audience. Many heels do both, cheating as well as behaving nastily. No matter the type of heel, the most important job is that of the antagonist role, as heels exist to provide a foil to the face wrestlers. If a given heel is cheered over the face, a promoter may opt to turn that heel to face or the other way around, or to make the wrestler do something even more despicable to encourage heel heat.
