Some heated articles on recent Trump ‘unearthing’.
We’re either being “treated” to a blatant example of how little the media respects our intelligence by tossing in junky scraps of news into our cages, waiting for us to dribble and hoot over them.
Or we’re being confronted by the reality of us encouraging the media to treat us like a bunch of overly sensitive children because that’s what we’ve evolved into.
I can not believe, for one minute, that anyone with even a sophomoric knowledge of society and an unimpaired IQ could truly blow this story into the “scandal” it has become.
The worst my creative imagination gathered from his comment was ‘Yup. Ten plus ten does indeed equal twenty..Hm, that sounds about right for Donald’
With that being said, I am finding it hard to accept that we aren’t familiar with the JOKES we tell within our society regarding May-December pairings and the like. Among these jokes, there are many variations of many quips and snips we crack wise over. What Trump said? Many of us have heard that said quite a few times, I’m sure.
As I matured into a young woman, I preferred the company of older men. Any man or woman who has had the privilege of dating older lovers in their youth, has heard enough “cruising the playground for dates” jokes to last a lifetime. On the flip-side, the “cruising the nursing home for dates” is commonly spent amongst the younger lovers. But we’re not losing our mind over a public figure laying down a joke after greeting a geriatric on the elevator, so…
That’s all it was. A stupid and well worn joke that folks have been yuckling up for decades.
It shouldn’t even be a topic, it’s that insignificant. But here we are, stirring up or being stirred up into hypertensive states about it.
Why? Who knows why. There’s more important questions that need addressing.
If it is media manipulation in order to distract from the real concerns we have as citizens, or an indicator of our intellectual or emotional weak spots… those are the things to pull the serious faces over and burn the brain cells on.
