Much like the 2003 film the Room, the 2016 general election is a fucking disasterpiece. And yet nobody was joining the disparate threads of Tommy Wiseau's cult hit with the tattered, knockoff American flag that is the lead-up to inauguration day.
Luckily, screenwriter Michael H. Weber did.
If you zoom out from the characters themselves, it's easy to see the ways that Wiseau and the Donald truly are one in the same. Neither are all that comfortable with their heritage, they both gained their wealth through real estate, and have a distinct brand of braggadocio that speaks to the absolute horrors of lies wrapped around egos gone unchecked. Any bizarre statement and grand proclamation is treated with a gravitas and twist of logic few others benefit from.
If only Trump could leave his stupid comments in his pocket.
