And that's where the action is in the age of Trump. After trial and error the left has embraced it as its number-one power tool against the alt-right in general and Trumpism in particular.
Why is funny so effective (when the courts might not be)?
Well, the non-experts on comedy on the "Gillmor Gang" yesterday observed that comedy works because it gets under the skin of The Donald. He watches it. And he reacts.
The only thing more satisfying than making daddy mad is making The Donald enraged. Who knows, the right scenario on SNL or in a club in D.C. could catapult him to the point of no return. That could be impeachment or the lunatic bin.
This could give birth to a new golden age of comedy around the world. This will be very different from the earnest street theatre of the counterculture. That kind of performance art excluded humor. After all, the issues were so serious.
Now, as the panelists on the Gillmor Gang size up the whole Trumpism bit, everything seems to be unintentional comedy. I would like to put on a show "Kellyanne and The Trumpettes."
