Trump’s Campaign Is Really Just A Long Sitcom Episode
Thin-skinned. Reckless. Intolerant. Easily threatened by competitors. When you hear these descriptive adjectives, who comes to mind? Yes, Jenna Maroney from 30 Rock! That’s exactly what I was thinking. However, with the current political climate in the United States, I suspect you might have thought of Donald Trump. In a sense, 30 Rock’s resident blowhard actually has a lot in common with Trump. So much so that her fictional TV quotes actually sound like REAL things Trump would say. It’s a bit frightening. But once you take a look at the Donald Maroney Tumblr profile, you’ll realize how hilariously entertaining it is.
In a genius move, and quite possibly the best use of memes ever, one Tumblr user has taken some of Jenna Maroney’s best lines and juxtaposed them over images of the Donald. The result is so ridiculously funny you might need to change your pants after a few minutes of scrolling.
Captioned over one picture of Trump and his vice presidential pick Mike Pence is,
“Why do you think I asked you in the first place? Because you’re not famous. You think I want someone up there with me that other people are looking at?” Gosh Donald Maroney. We knew Mike Pence wasn’t exactly popular, but this is some intense trolling. (And we secretly love it.)
Perhaps the most priceless one so far is a shot of Trump onstage during one of his infamous catfights, er debates, with Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. The caption reads, ”Wow. How Sex and the City are we right now? I’m Samantha. You’re Charlotte. And you’re the lady at home who watches it.” Tears rolling down our faces right now! The thought of Ted Cruz as a lonely cat lady watching Carrie and the girls is a whole new category of funny. Trump as Samantha…where’s the barf bag?
Maybe the joke’s on all of us and Trump’s entire campaign has been some kind of weird ploy for a 30 Rock reboot. At his next rally, he’ll pull off his orange devil mask and reveal that Jane Krakowski has been hiding under his toupee all along. Fingers crossed.
