We’re approaching 2018 and leftists still don’t understand why Donald Trump happened. If they did, they’d stop contributing in kind to his 2020 reelection (see Leftists Protest Election of Donald Trump by Screaming at the Clouds and Video: Seth Meyers Parrots Eminem. Tells his Trump-Supporting Fans to Get Bent…). In Hollywood, it’s even worse. Bashing Trump and his supporters is tinseltown’s favorite hobby in 2017. When they aren’t raping people. Seriously, I wonder how many times a famous producer needed to tell an actress, “Just wait behind the potted plant. Trump said a thing.”
Actor Nick Searcy, as a public service, wanted to help his Hollywood colleagues better understand why Trump happened. So he did. While guest hosting the Rush Limbaugh Show. And he used for an example… wait, professional wrestling?
OH, C’MON! You people have already politicized everything I love this year. LEAVE. PRO. WRESTLING. ALONE.
Actually, in all seriousness, his analogy is solid.
The arrival of Trump in politics, continued Searcy, was like the arrival of Hulk Hogan in the wrestling world.
“[Hogan] would hit the heel back with [objects],” said Searcy — and the audience loved Hogan because “they’d been waiting for this for years.” They finally had a wrestler to root for who was willing to employ the same tactics used against him.
Hogan kicked off the “attitude era” in wrestling, in which matches were less predictable and the personalities of the stars were bigger than ever.
FAKE NEWS! The “attitude era” started with Stone Cold Steve Austin.
The arrival of Trump, like Hogan, had people excited, said Searcy, because he was “a throwback to the attitude era” and was willing to fight back and fight back hard.
“He leads with the chair,” said Searcy of Trump. “He starts clocking people before the bell even rings.”
Searcy then ran some old audio clips of 1980s wrestlers playing tough for cameras — and compared the language to how Trump communicates to crowds.
Hollywood doesn’t understand Trump and is so frustrated by him because they just don’t understand professional wrestling, concluded Searcy.
There you have it. If leftists want to understand Donald Trump, all you need is a subscription to the WWE Network. And at least a slightly functional brain.
I’m sure Colton Wade has one.
