I absolutely love Scaramucci! (aka Scaramuccia — literally “little skirmisher” — is a stock clown character of the Italian commedia dell’arte(comic theatrical arts). The role combined characteristics of the zanni (servant) and the Capitano (masked henchman). From Wikipedia)
Finally Trump is delivering what his supporters have really wanted all along: Entertainment! And The Donald is finally getting back to his roots as a show host with the “Mooch” playing his zany sidekick. I have not seen any episode of West Wing nearly as entertaining as the current White House. Who is next to get the ax? The only thing missing is Donald’s trademark “You’re Fired!”. It’s all about ratings. It was all about ratings in the primaries and all about ratings again in the general election. DT may not have had the biggest Inauguration crowds ever but he has consistently had the highest TV ratings in history. He is an unparalleled success and he has every right to boast. Those ratings are why he is still in office. He is a national drug that news media, pundits and late night comedians cannot get enough of. If he goes late night TV will collapse.
The ancient Romans kept the populace under control with “bread and circuses”. The powers that rule need the masses distracted. Donald has delivered a first class ratings monster of a circus. The Republicans are just too incompetent to take advantage of it. Maybe it’s because they seem to be missing the “bread” part of “bread and circuses”. To be truly entertained the masses do need to be fed.
