GOP Politics Hijacked By Reality TV Stars

Would you like another quick visit with Donald Trump's mockery of the US political campaigning and the end-of-the-day manifestation of GOPism?  In a bit....

Did you notice late last week former WWE entertainer Hulk Hogan spoke about the prospect of a running mate for Donald Trump's 2016 campaign? Yes, Hogan joined the reality TV takeover of the GOP and boldly declared himself good for a Trump ticket. The two reality TV celebrities do have much in common.


The connection, commonality and likeness are a matter of fact. Trump has taken his celebrity to the epitome of the state of US insanity that is as real as AOL's affinity with Kim Kardasian. Better yet, Trump's insanity has lead to this.

After Hogan's advertisement to Trump, he seems to have moved his charade next to the Trump carnival via a perfunctory apology for use of a racial slur.

Hulk Hogan: ‘I’m Not a Racist, but I Never Should Have Said What I Said’

Hulk Hogan sat down with Good Morning America on Monday for his first television interview since being fired by the WWE in July for leaked audio of a racist rant directed at his daughter’s then-boyfriend. 
At the time, Hogan quickly apologized for audio the recordings, in which the ex-wrestler repeatedly made use of the n-word. However, his interview with ABC’s Amy Robach on Monday marks his first televised appearance since July’s events. 
After admitting that he’d considered suicide at the time, Robach asked Hogan whether or not he was a racist. 
“I’m not a racist, but I never should have said what I said. It was wrong. I’m embarrassed by it,” he answered. 
“People need to realize that you inherit things from your environment,” Hogan explained. “Where I grew up was south Tampa, Port Tampa, and it was a really rough neighborhood, very low income. And all my friends, we greeted each other saying that word.”

The former WWE personality went on to explain that using the n-word where he grow up “was part of the culture and the environment.” 
When Robach asked whether or not Hogan had inherited a racial bias, he immediately agreed: “I think that’s fair to say.”

The Daily GOP Ignominious: The Trump Anvil And Right-Wng Quicksand

It is again time to visit the insane manifestation of American conservatism via clear evidence the many on the Right is actually about big government. From borders on both the southern and northerner and borders to forced ID readers on human beings, the GOP has gone mad.

Chris Christie goes in front of a bunch of very high-end Baby Boomers and rails like a Third Reich security official about "your papers." He actually stated he would support an immigrant ID system for tracking immigrants to the US as Fed Ex tracks its service packages.  

What you are about to see and hear is not from a conspiracy network, it is not an excerpt from a Twilight Zone-like show, nor is it not a figment of your imagination. It is as real as a the 24 hour clock and it is as dangerous as this....

Embedded image permalinkChristie if running on the fringe of insanity to facilitate the GOP campaign insertion of one of the nation's most popular reality show celebrities. 

Yes, Donald Trump as he grabbed the attention of millions across the nation thus lowering the 2016 GOP nomination campaigns to nothing shy of a carnival show. The level of insanity has evolved to a point of this spectacle at the video Music Awards (a show I wouldn't watch if I was paid $100.00 for the viewing). Trumpism gone way too far.

Catch Walker in an obvious quest for "Trump Attention" with a one-up wall along the US northern border (virtual 4.000 plus miles).

Trump is as a movement leading psyche.

Mexico says it will not build or pay for border wall

I actually know of a couple of people who have recently intimate an affinity for Trumps madness. Rest assured, it is madness and endemic of a society so laden with realty TV it has moved into a danger zone.
