AS SARAH PAULSON ACCEPTED HER EMMY AWARD, I HAD A SCARY REVELATION ABOUT THIS YEAR'S ELECTION AND MY MOUTH DROPPED OPEN IN FEAR
Is Donald J. Trump the OJ Simpson in this campaign, and if so does that make Hillary Clinton the Marcia Clark of this election?
A FUNNY WELL NOT SO FUNNY OBSERVATION occurred to me as I watched Sunday nights Emmy awards, is Hillary Clinton being vilified this election campaign, in a similar vein that Marcia Clark was by the media during the now infamous and historic OJ Simpson murder trial. I can already sense that some of those who are nice enough to read this probably just laughed at the idea. I know what I just wrote must sound far fetched to most and maybe it is, but hear me out on this, there's logic in my insanity.
“I along with the rest of the world, had been superficial and careless in my judgment, and I’m here today to tell you I’m sorry,” - Sarah Paulson
While watching the mini-series, Marcia Clark was made out to be a woman, a three-dimensional person, a real human being just trying to do her job. Which was to try to convict someone of a crime that all the evidence proved was guilty, excluding the ‘show’ that the defense produced. Because that's what the OJ Simpson trial was, a show, a performance, and millions of Americans including the Jury on the trial actually let a man get away with murder. And just as most of us judged her as a way too serious hard edged woman, with no feelings or a heart, and they've used the same template on the former Secretary of State. Interesting, they create a scenario and then they use it as a talking point. She's unlikeable, she a liar, she's untrustworthy, and she surely has no humanity. She formed ISIS, she started the Birther movement, she's the crook, she's the liar.
