My late wife indulged my wanting to have the biggest screen TV that would fit in the space we had. When I moved from Massachusetts to Oregon I didn’t take anything besides some clothes and artwork, just what would fit in the trunk of my car. So one of the first things I bought here was a 55” Samsung TV (right).
Now I am “treated” to images of Trump so vivid and detailed I can see the pores on his fish face. Recently I thought I could see the flop sweat starting on his brow. Today I saw beads of sweat on Boris Epshteyn’s upper lip. Yea!
What bothers me the most is bringing the Trump crowds into my living room in high definition. On my screen each person in the crowd is easily visible. They’re all five inch tall little zombie people. Hundreds of them not just cheering but chanting like banshees. It’s like they’re possessed.
I was watching tonight and this was really bothering me.
Then Rachel showed the Hillary rally where my old senator Elizabeth — as my wife would have said — cut Trump a new one.
The five inch tall cheering Hillary supporters made me glad I had the TV. Focus, Hal, don’t let it get to you too much, after the election no amount of Viagra will restore their pre-election erections.
I am not embarrassed to say that I watch a lot of television. I have Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu streaming video. I’m always on the lookout for shows like “Hell on Wheels,” about building the transcontinental railroad, or the two seasons of the British “Black Mirror,” kind of like an updated “Twilight Zone.”
I follow the latest innovations in televisions and am aware that so far only LG will have the cutting edge 65” 4K OLED television for awhile. I went to the store and took width measurement of the current model, and it fits (see above). It will dominate my living room, but I don’t care.
I’m thinking that once I don’t have to look at a nearly life-sized Kellyanne Conway or Trump’s slimy groper grouper mouth, and the newer model LG televisions come out, perhaps I will celebrate Hillary’s landslide and the Democrats winning the Senate by treating myself to one.
I know my wife would say that was fine with her.
OMG — there’s a life sized David Duke on my screen. Rachel reports that he is high enough in the polls for the Louisiana Senate race debate. He polls 5.1% of voters in the state, .1% over the 5% needed to be allowed to participate in a November 2 debate.
