No Respect for The Little Baby Man! He is Just Too Uncool!

Thursdays I usually turn to the Style Section of the NYTimes. You'd be surprised how entertaining and enlightening the world of fashion can be. Anthropological.  

Yesterday, a profile of Andre Leon Talley. Quite good. "Monsieur Vogue is Leaving Trumpland." Seems Andre has "dressed Melania Trump," and said some nice things about her in the past, and this has created a stir in the fashion world. A fashion world kerfuffle! There's this great quote from Andre:

“You make the choice to be in Trumpland or you make the choice to eject yourself from the horror of Trumpland. I’ve made my choice not to be part of Trumpland.”


Way to go Andre! I also read somewhere that the Trump team is frantically trying to secure "A-List" entertainment for the big inauguration in January, and is coming up empty. Already turned down by Celine Dion and Elton John (A-List?!), and I think to myself, yes, "Who in their right mind would want to play any part in that horrible spectacle? Well, looks like pretty much no one... although, you'd think maybe Kid Rock, Ted Nugent and those Duck Dynasty Dudes might show up?

Much of Hollywood, and the Fashion world and Silicon Valley and the Music World cast their votes for the progressive woman candidate. I don't expect many of them to now join the horror of Trumpland.

The man, and what he represents (Maybe Fascism in America?) is horrifying, and frightening. More importantly, basically, fundamentally, Trump is NOT COOL! Never was, never will be. He just isn't. Coolness is a land Trump can never enter.

Trump will never be cool. And he doesn't know it. Which even makes him more uncool. He is not only uncool, but he is laughable, a constant figure of ridicule, satire (Alec Baldwin!!!). A big, bloated buffoon. He doesn't know what he doesn't know. He likes to tell everyone how "smart" he is - a sure sign of complete stupidity. And insecurity.

The man is a Narcissistic little Baby-Man. And he thinks that with wealth and power, he will earn respect. He is sadly mistaken. No respect for Little Baby-Man. It's probably what drives him. He doesn't understand why people don't look up to him. Don't envy him. Don't show him the respect he thinks he deserves. 

He never will earn that respect. People laugh at this man.  They will always laugh at this man. Always. Forever. He can occupy the White House, he will have the power to send soldiers into combat, he will be able to "drone" people, and still, he will be a figure of comedy. We will laugh at him. He is so uncool with his big, overdone hotels, his ridiculous Stepford Wife, his strange Stepford-like children, his frantic and absurd tweeting, his Celebrity Apprentice history.

The Little Baby Man is a fool. There may be tragedy around the corner. We may all suffer for his foolishness, but still, if the world ends under the rule of Trump, the last word, won't actually be a word. It will be a laugh. A small little snigger. Hah! "What has that Uncool Little Baby Man done now?"

UNCOOL! 

And as George Carlin the great comic once said, every little boy's last prayer before they went to bed, was always: "Please God, make me a cool guy." Everything else is just showbiz.
