Wrestling with the Voting Public

I’ve been thinking a lot about the presidential election, and what I believe nearly everyone missed about the Trump campaign method. Trump presented himself as a laughable candidate to many people, despite constant primary victories, humiliating his opponents in debates, and massive rallies.
Last week on I mapped out a theory about how he used pro wrestling style metafictional storytelling to talk past the media and disbelieving public. It’s a 51 tweet essay, posted below (also pinned on my twitter page itself). For additional thoughts, read this great travelogue from Kaleb Horton via MTV, “Winter in America“.
