Trump’s Desperation Is Starting to Look Like a Viral Karen Meltdown | by Will Leitch | Dec, 2020 | GEN

But what has changed is that this video is happening, uh, right next to Rudy Giuliani, who as the lawyer for the president of the United States is actively trying to overturn the results of an election his client lost. This video is not just a funny viral video that you send around to your friends. This video is the news.

I know the rush of information and madness that has flickered past us every minute of every day as we’ve been trapped in our homes with no choice to consume it—I know it’s overwhelming. I know it can be tough to make sense of it. But this really shouldn’t be overlooked: The viral Target mask videos are now happening as part of normal government business. If you want to see someone do something unhinged, all you have to do is turn on C-SPAN and wait. Someone clearly impaired saying nonsensical things and making a public embarrassment of themselves—and this person is right at the very center of one of the most important, perilous moments in American history. What a way for 2020 to finish itself. You just have to laugh and shake your head. Because the alternative is absolutely terrifying.
