Trump Presidency Has Made Hollywood Scriptwriters Look Uncreative

December 24, 2018 8 comments

In a previous post, I wrote about my theories on the reasons why Trump is publicly despised by entertainment “celebrities” after he ran for the presidency and won in 2016. And this got me thinking.. how does Trump compare to some of the more “colorful” and unconventional political characters depicted in movies and on TV. As some of you may know, there have been more than a few unflattering depictions of political figures in film and TV over the years. For example, the persona of the titular character in Bob Roberts (1992) has noticeable similarities to Trump. Then again, the main character in that movie was running for a senate seat and not the presidency.

Bulworth (1998) is another movie in which the central character has some resemble to the Trump persona– though most policies advocated by him in it are closer to those of Bernie Sanders. In case you are interested, here is another list of movie which have a main character with some sort of resemblance to the Trump persona– though only 3-4 of them are close enough. My point is that even the normally outrageous imagination of Hollywood scriptwriters could not come up with anything close to the reality of Trump. If you do not believe me, just read a small selection of his official Tweets from the past eight days. Here is part one of the screenshots..

Still not satisfied.. here is part two.
