Besides his shockingly well-acted televised performance in an actual WWE wrestling match, the most remarkable thing about this collection of Donald Trump cameos in hit sitcoms and cops shows over the decades is the complete restraint shown by the CollegeHumor channel, in simply allowing these TV appearances to stand on their own.
CH totally refrains from editorializing and gives us an unvarnished and oftentimes awkward view of The Donald’s continuous, if slapdash crafting of a public persona, which is now running for President.
Although Trump portrays his bid for the US Presidency in as flippant and improvised a manner as he does in his myriad television cameos over the years, after watching this, one can’t help but get the sense that he’s been planning to run his whole life – and that in a bizarre way, these TV debuts served as early dress rehearsals for his Presidential run.
One also cannot shake the realization that these ungainly displays would characterize the entire tone of a Trump Presidency.
This isn’t to say that the alternatives are any better.
