Norm MacDonald is quite possibly the authority when it comes to controversy and humor. He was fired from “Saturday Night Live” as the “Weekend Update” host for dubious reasons, but that doesn’t mean MacDonald has lost his sharp eye for understanding the public thought.
In the last few hours, MacDonald took to Twitter to deliver his honest perspective on the events of the 2016 election, a series of tweets that tell a story of two sides underestimating what Donald Trump represented without the filter of media and the strength of charisma in a political election.
MacDonald’s stance was that the whole world made Donald Trump a joke, when he was anything but, and the dismissive rhetoric and tactics used against Trump were unsuited for the climate that exists today within American politics. That the establishment was unprepared for the political revolution Donald Trump was gearing toward, and they suffered for it.
The future of American politics seems to be a mystery. MacDonald wants people to realize the reasons behind the uncertainty that elected Donald Trump into office, and how the distrust of the media became such an issue in the election.
There is a glimmer of hope for Americans, however, and MacDonald wants us to hear it.
Let’s hope for the best.
