I have a bad habit of reading the comments section. In my mind I see comments section and think, “Oh, an intelligent discussion about an article I just read. I love intelligent discussions!” If you’ve never gone into a comments section, let me tell you one thing it is not: an intelligent discussion. It is quite the opposite.
But I know I’m not the only one to plunge into the dark abyss of a comments section. There are plenty of people – troll or not – who frequent them. Trolls, after all, cease to exist if there is no exasperation to feed on.
Do you know what happens when a country becomes so enamored with ad hominem attacks and logical fallacies? They elect Donald Trump – a walking, talking, Tweeting comments section.
So I present to you This Week in “I can’t even.” A collection of the most absurd things I have seen from Trump in the past week.
