President Donald Trump – We’ve Seen Worse, Haven’t We? (2020)
AuthorsCoulter, Gerryshow all
The emergence of Donald Trump as a legitimate contender for the Presidencyof the United States of America has left this Baudrillard scholar amused. Personally,as someone who detests politicians, I�m tickled by �the Donald�s� rise � what betterperson to incarnate everything I have come to loath about politicians? Yet, for a Baudrillardian scholar, Donald Trump�s quest for the presidency raises interesting questions concerning Baudrillard�s work on the silent majorities and the transpolitical. After dealing with these I will offer the opinion that the Americans have already had at least one president who was worse, with far more unsettling long term effects, than even Donald Trump may be capable of generating.
