Thanks again, I think the other vanities were in some ways better but parodies are like fresh food, always taste better at the time it is made when the issues are fresh.
This particular parody utilized the fact that I understood where the suckers were coming from. They are frustrated, they are angry, they don't understand the complex issues that few if any fully understand(certainly not me) , so they get attracted to those that claim to have the easy answers that they want to exist, but don't. And they don't want to do a few quick internet searches that would easily disprove the silly Trump claims, as I did and posted in comments of those Trump threads.
Ever see those Extenz commercials for the pill that grows that certain male body part? Or the commercials that sell you a software package that creates highly profitable internet based businesses on your computer that run themselves (with just your computer and their program) ? People WANT to believe it is true, so they send their money in. That was Trump. He addressed real serious problems with made up nonsense, much like Obama in 2008.
You are entirely correct. Human nature is what it is. People WANT to believe - particularly in that which fits their worldview.
I regularly attack skunks like Trump and silly conspiracy theories because I think those of us that know better have some responsibility to call out BS when we see it.
Satire done right always makes me laugh. The Trump piece was so good because there are, as you know, many people who could easily have read that, assumed you were serious, agreed with it, and went on thinking Trump was a hero.
