I want everyone to pretend it’s five years ago. Just five!
Imagine Rosanne Barre comes out with a show where she pushes little kids cross-dressing, surrogate motherhood and selling your own eggs for money, and mocks traditional Christian values (a staple of “Rosanne” – they even did a black and white throwback episode that was designed specifically to mock the sorts of shows that pushed those values).
And conservatives are falling over themselves to praise it…because Rosanne gives a lukewarm semi-endorsement of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
This is the actual real situation we are in today, right now.
We should all stop, right now, and think about what has happened here. It isn’t good.
