I finally figured out what the tRump presidency reminds me of. He runs the country like the food franchise we all know and… loath/love. Here are a few things they have in common:
They do create jobs. Low-paying jobs that offer no chance of advancement to any real life-sustaining level, jobs with horrible benefits or none at all. Jobs that will not let you keep up with the cost of living, let alone make any headway.
We know they are bad for us, but some of us are loyal to a frightening degree. We know they put our long-term health at risk, but we are content with the immediate satisfaction of what they offer. They are literally killing us for their own profit, and they are totally okay with that, and so, it seems, are many of us.
They work for the big shareholders, the money people, and the people at the top of the corporate structure, and that is who they take care of, not the customers that allow them to thrive. Their only goal is profit, for them and a select group of other wealthy individuals.
They are horrible for the environment. They generate waste and filth, Global climate change is just a potential risk to their profit margins.
Mismanagement, corporate greed, and corruption run riot within the structure.
They both have a clown as a front-man, who is content to consort with criminals. I almost put Rudy Giuliani’s face on the Hamburgler, but then I thought, why be specific and lazy. Use your own imagination to put any of tRump’s cronies who currently inhabit a jail cell there. I can’t do everything for you in Photoshop.
I could go on… and on… but once again, I would like you to do some of the work. This is an interactive blog, so leave a comment if you can think of other ways that these two monolithic brands are similar.
