Many have spoken about how the 2016 U.S. presidential election season has become much like a bad reality television show. Not much reality seems to be represented, just a lot of sensationalism, distraction, and outrage; all leading to a distorted reality at best.
The public seems to gobble up this form of entertainment, much like ancestors of old would have flocked to the hangman’s noose to watch a hanging.
After nearly a year of this form of entertainment, there is a foreboding sense that by November the hangman’s noose will no longer continue to draw the crowds.
The metaphoric guillotine?
