Donald tRump and the McDonaldsification of the American political system…

White house

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.

    And their godlike magical hero is named Ronald.

    They insist on forcing their way into other countries, do immeasurable damage and ignore the consequences. Both tRump and McDonalds don’t even need to pretend to give a damn about any where outside of the USA. But they cry foul and use terrible ramifications if anyone doesn’t fold.

    • Well said! They also make America look like asshats wherever they do force their way in, with no respect for local history or culture.

        But at the moment we can’t really talk as our morons are pretty bad too. Australia is on fire because our politicians don’t believe in climate. I’ve thought of a good thing about tRump being president: Australians don’t have to be mortified when an Australian pollie talks to him. OMG were we humiliated when our prime minister spoke to Obama.

        • tRump is a climate denier on top of all the other stellar qualities that I make fun of here. You have nothing to be ashamed about. Stay safe. and get new leaders. We are trying to do that.

  3. A recent editorial in the “Dallas Morning News” noted that only 22% of jobs lost during the ‘Great Recession’ were in low-wage industries, such as food service. But those jobs accounted for 44% of positions created during the recovery. On top of that, the multitude of bailouts granted to many of the companies that incited the recession went to stock buy-backs and not reinvestment in equipment, software and / or hiring.

    That’s all something I’ve heard before, and I’ve pointed it out to Trump-loving friends and acquaintances. But it seems to fly right over their little heads like the ‘Space Force’. Wall Street numbers may be up, but that doesn’t mean a damn thing to the rest of us struggling with the increasingly high costs of living.

    Conservatives just haven’t figured out (or maybe won’t accept) that trickle-down economics simple doesn’t work! It just doesn’t! It never has and it never will!
