Trump’s new opera: ‘The Hypocrite-in-Chief’
Felicia Persaud | 9/3/2020, midnight
A new opera opened last week at the RNC’s white nationalist convention, one which has played to extremely poor reviews since.
It is Donald Trump’s new creation titled: ‘The Hypocrite-in-Chief.’ Have you heard of it?
Here’s a synopsis that harkens back to the era of Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Benito Amilcare Andrea Mussolini. In this opera, Donald Trump plays not the Fascist of the 21st Century we know him to be, but the pro-immigrant Potus, welcoming Black and Brown immigrants from even “s-hole’ and Muslim countries to his White House, to the music of “Hail to the Chief.”
And as the show reaches a climax, he bestows them with the ultimate prize of all––U.S. citizenship. This opera played to a largely white audience, who applauded it for being a great show, as great as the minstrel shows of decades past in America.
Like in most operas, there was sadness, rage and a lot of make believe. But it also included way too much hypocrisy, and reviewers just could not get past that. So notable reviewers, including the Washington Post, gave it a thumbs down, much to Donald’s annoyance.
Even the poor Black and Brown “actors” knew it was filled with a lot of hypocrisy. At least two did not even know their performance would be broadcast to the RNC’s America of Lies convention during prime time, while others like Sudanese national, Neimat Abdelazim Awadelseid, told The New York Times that the real life immigration executive orders instituted by the opera’s creator, makes it “hard for my country.”
“It is painful, what he did, his policy toward my country,” Awadelseid later told the Washington Post who would not have been here under Donald Trump’s America because of his current policies towards Sudan and because her brother sponsored her, through the family reunification provision, which Trump calls “chain migration.”
Indian national Sudha Narayanan did not know either that her “performance” would be broadcast, a clear violation of showbiz rules, where you must get clearance from the participants in order to put them on a show. But most of all, in Donald Trump’s current America, Narayanan, who came here in the F2 visa category as the wife of a foreign student, would not be allowed into the country to study at any of the hundreds of American universities that have opted for the safer online-only option today because of Trump’s policies, meaning she would not even have become a U.S. citizen.
This is only a miniscule reason of why Donald Trump’s opera failed, and its reviews were scathing.
Luckily for most of America, he now must pass the most important review of all––Trump has to answer for every single anti-immigration policy he has implemented in his years as Potus, including his snatching of Brown children from the arms of their parents and putting them in cages or simply losing them in a system where they have become orphans.
And this time the ultimate review will come on Nov. 3, 2020 from American voters casting their ballots to determine who takes the coveted prize of Potus for the next four years.
That is the opera that matters most and in that opera, every Black and immigrant voter must show up and vote to ensure their “review” is a clear thumbs down, as they send Donald Trump back to the cemetery of fascism where he belongs.
