09/07/19 America, USA–The most important news in the world today is between a president, a Sharpie, and the guestimated path of a storm, now forever infamous, on a map.
That means there isn’t much else to report on in the world today. Trump used a Sharpie to draw on a map to prove his point on a forecasted storm path. That is worth the headline.
And it doesn’t stop there. Trump memes have turned to Sharpiegate all over social media. An even more important event than Hurricane Dorian itself, it seems, but not really.
Trump, a Sharpie, and a storm on a Ross Perotesque map, front and center. That’s the most important information to read about between the prescription pill ads and the ads promoting mass consumerism.
We live in a wonderful world. When the aforementioned is the worst news. The news media can disparage and distract and still run ads.
