It begins, This post was published 1 minute after Donald Trump took the oath of office for President of the United States at high noon on the steps of the US capital. For the most part anyone who has more than an 11th grade education has some level of anxiety about Donald Trump running things.
Perhaps starting off with a TV listing for the BBC is a good place to start. Ironically as it may sound satirical, the truth is it is not.
President Trump: The Inauguration
4pm, BBC One/ STV
“After a long absence, The Twilight Zone returns with one of the most ambitious, expensive and controversial productions in broadcast history. Sci-fi writers have dabbled often with alternative history stories – among the most common is the “What If The Nazis Had Won The Second World War” setting – but this huge interactive virtual reality project, which will unfold on TV, in the press, and on Twitter over the next four years, sets out to build an ongoing alternative present.
The story begins in a nightmarish version of 2017 in which huge sections of the US electorate have somehow been duped into voting to make Donald Trump president. It sounds far-fetched, and it is, but as it goes on it becomes more and more chillingly plausible. Today’s feature-length opener concentrates on the gaudy inauguration of President Trump, and the stirrings of protest and despair surrounding the ceremony, while pundits speculate gravely on what lies ahead. It’s a flawed piece, but a disturbing glimpse of the horrors we could stumble into, if we’re not careful.”
And there is more.
Taking it even further the it seems Donald Trump does not care about fact or science either as his continued indulgent in established non truths as if they were in fact true is very scary.
We don’t want to say more at this time, simply because like everyone else, we have just walked through the door of the unknown.
