The phony outrage

Image may contain: 3 people
The American voter is so shocked and outraged by Trump's vulgar behavior. Not. What they pay to see.

"Without discounting the grossness of what Trump said 11 years ago, the protestations from the same class whom I have watched my entire sentient life deny the existence of the concept of obscenity (while injecting it into every sphere of public life) over his vulgarity do seem a bit, shall we say, rich. To put it another way, if you spend several decades undermining standards, traditions, and values, calling "Piss Christ" art, celebrating misogynist/vapid/degrading rap and pop "lyrics" as music, and promoting low reality/celebrity 'culture' as something to strive for, you're gonna get some side effects." – James Morrow
