Idiocracy: it seems fiction has become reality.
It can't be all bad.

Look, if we take this idiocracy to its extreme, we might be able to avert wars in the future by holding head of state pay per view cage matches. In which case, again, the Rock 2020!
Hillary would kick his ass. She is a very resourceful woman.

No thanks. If the Clintons have any decency, they will not impose themselves on the country again and just retire to Chapaqua so I can limit my exposure to running into them at the Stone Barns farmer's market.

Ummmm but she can beat Trump and the Rock in a cage match. Therefore she deserves to be president. Regardless of Clinton-ness or lack thereof.

The son thought of past poverty, outlook humble, now having from father a treasure harvest, also father's house, all his wealth. Great joy - to have what was never before had.

Τῆς πατρῴας, δόξης σου, ἀποσκιρτήσας ἀφρόνως, ἐν κακοῖς ἐσκόρπισα, ὅν μοι παρέδωκας πλοῦτον· ὅθεν σοι τὴν τοῦ Ἀσώτου, φωνὴν κραυγάζω· Ἥμαρτον ἐνώπιόν σου Πάτερ οἰκτίρμον, δέξαι με μετανοοῦντα, καὶ ποίησόν με, ὡς ἕνα τῶν μισθίων σου.
Your fatherly due I withheld unthinking, in evil I wasted your wealth; a prodigal cries, "I've erred, father, receive the repentant as serf."

The next level was having you fight Hillary in a cage match.

Don't underestimate her. She knows krav maga. You can't prove she doesn't.

If we are going to have entertainers running for the job, personally, I believe Ernest Borgnine should be president of the U$. I reckon he can do a better job as a rotting corpse in a grave, than Trump or Clinton could ever do.
