Trump: For the Sake of the Show

According to Wikipedia, the term "suspension of disbelief" or "willing suspension of disbelief" has been defined as a willingness to suspend one's critical faculties and believe the unbelievable; sacrifice of realism and logic for the sake of enjoyment. This is ostensibly what we do when we go the theater or cinema to enjoy the latest blockbuster movie. Without suspending our disbelief, we would essentially be left to observe that what we are seeing played out is nothing but two-dimensional images on a flat screen.

This seems most applicable in Trump's America. For six months we have been witness to President Trump and his steady deluge of deception. Starting on the first full day of the Administration, we were told that Trump's "was the largest audience to witness an inauguration PERIOD!", when photographic evidence indicated otherwise. Since July 2016, we have been told repeatedly by Trump Campaign and Administration officials that there was no contact with Russians during the 2016 campaign. Trump himself has told us "[b]etween 3 million and 5 million illegal votes caused [him] to lose the popular vote" and that he had "signed more bills — and I'm talking about through the legislature — than any president, ever." The latest is Trump's tweet of July 31, 2017 that there is no White House chaos, just hours before dismissing Anthony Scaramucci, Trump's third Communications Director, after only 10 days, and 4 days after dismissing his Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus after 6 months. Well – right after I wrote the preceding sentence, the White House admitted that Trump did NOT receive phone calls from Mexican President Peña Nieto praising his border patrol policies or from the Boy Scouts of America congratulating him on the "greatest speech ever". One must write very quickly to keep up with the growing list of lies.

The list of incorrect, misleading, or deceptive statements or outright lies that have come and continue coming from this Administration is too long to list here -- and grows almost daily. Thus are we left with a continued willingness to suspend our critical faculties and believe the unbelievable. Thus are we left to sacrifice realism and logic for the sake of enjoyment. What else would we expect from having elected a reality-star entertainer? The most recent polls show, however, that President Trump has reached historic lows of popularity. One asks oneself (to echo the 2016 campaign): how low can he go? But the real question to pose is one to our body politic: when do we decide to walk out of the theater?
