10 long, dark nights for America: “Trick or treat, American electorate?”

by awindram

Ten long, dark nights to go. 

Trump’s Daily Twitter Highlight: “I am in Colorado – big day planned – but nothing can be as big as yesterday!”

Clinton’s Daily Twitter Highlight: “No matter what they throw at us in these last days, we won’t back down. We won’t be distracted.”

Daily election article of interest: Clive James: ‘Hillary should have told Trump at least once to go screw himself’

That living in America during this election is a purgatorial existence is made just a little more apparent when you realize that this Saturday there will be some (damaged) folk going to a Halloween party in a Sexy Donald Trump costume for the second year in a row. The countdown is ten days, but they’re just messing with us, this rigmarole is never going to end, is it?

I do hope there is a pretentious student theatre company out there putting on a production of Huis Clos where the set is made to look like a terrible Halloween party and the three characters are sat around in a Sexy Hillary Clinton costume, a Sexy Donald Trump costume, and a Sexy Bernie Sanders costume.

The Trump Halloween costume even has its own name, the icky rather than funny  Donna T. Rumpshaker. Although looked at from today, 2015 was a comparatively innocent age for Sexy Donald Trump outfits, the 2016 variant, coming after all the recent accusations of sexual abuse, makes for a much bleaker costume. Though if anyone is foolish and unimaginative enough to try and get a third Halloween out of their Sexy Donald Trump costume, hopefully they will discover that it will be as washed out as Trump will be washed up.
