So the MAGA hatted, right wing agitators and provocateurs are in hysterics over a play with an assassination scene with a lead character resembling Dear Leader. They must have missed the day in school when Shakespeare was covered. Yes, dear followers its Shakespeare, a 16th century English playwright who like to have famous figures killed off in course of the drama. A few examples:
Richard the Second? Tortured and Executed
Richard the Third? Slain.
Romeo and Juliet? Teen Suicides.
Macbeth? Lots of dead.
Coriolanus? Killed by conspirators.
Titus Andronicus? Lots of blood. Rape. Mutilation. Severed Heads. Cannibalism.
Yes, ol’ Shakespeare was a mighty blood thirsty fellow! Real dangerous stuff!
The orange haired bouffant buffoon currently ruining the country from the Oval Office joins the illustrious ranks of other famous politicians and blowhards who have been added to the cast of Shakespeare productions in the past such as Obama, Hillary, and Mussolini.
Will there be an executive order from El Trumpe banning English playwrights as unpatriotic and subversive?
Will the Department of Homeland Security crackdown on bootleg copies of SparkNotes?
I would recommend remedial courses in English literature for summer reading.
