History is definitely repeating itself: see "election of socialists and anti-Semites" and "ideology without information" as proof of that. And we've charged right into farce along with that.
Recent cases in point:
Sirius XM host David Webb was interviewing CNN analyst Areva Martin when she lectured him on his white privilege. There's just one problem:
Yeah, the problem would be that Webb is black. Way to keep mindlessly spouting the narrative, Areva. With you and Acosta, the saying "You can't make this stuff up" more than applies.
And then there's the "fact checking." The Washington Post fact-checked Trump's comment about there being a "mile high" stack of hamburgers at the White House Clemson reception. I'll just leave that there. You can't get much more farcical than that.
But they'll try.
