THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION doesn’t make sense as government. He has no coherent foreign or domestic policies. He fires trusted advisors regularly. White House staff wake up each morning and check their Tweeter feeds to find out what bizarre direction the country is now going in.
However, the Trump administration does make sense as theatre. Not exactly Shakespeare, although there may be comic elements. More like professional wrestling says Naomi Klein:
“It’s hard to overstate Trump’s fascination with wrestling (Harper’s magazine, Sept., 2017).”
