My Brain on Trump
I finally made my first visit to LA’s Broad museum this week. Even though it opened in September, I waited until I could easily get free tickets online rather than standing in a long line in front of the museum. Who are you trying to kid? You only went because you were on your way to a political rally nearby #swampcabinet I was impressed by the soaring upstairs galleries and the beautiful natural light, but underwhelmed by much of the collection. OMG, he’s tweeting about launching an investigation into voter fraud. Thin-skinned, delusional, self-aggrandizing, con-man. What have we done America? Did I say that out loud? Focus, you’re writing about art. There were a couple of notable exceptions that made the trip worthwhile: El Anatsui’s why didn’t the Electoral College do their fucking job and stop him? The women’s protest on Saturday was amazing. AMAZING! We have to keep up the pressure. KEEP MARCHING! He’ll crack soon amazing Red Block curtain of found aluminum and copper wire; where’s the sex tape? What does Russia have on him? It’s only a matter of time until journalists uncover it. Right? Fingers crossed. What’s in the tax returns? SOMEONE PLEASE LEAK THE FUCKING TAX RETURNS! Concentrate. El Anatsui. Ghanaian sculptor, born in 1944, active for much of his career in Nigeria. YES! GreenPeace is hanging a huge RESIST banner from a construction crane in DC and the installation #resist #ResistTrump #ResistTrumpTuesdays of two of Kara Walker’s pieces, Burning African Village Play Set with what about the 25th Amendment? We don’t have to wait for impeachment. Stop it! Focus! Section 4 states “that if the vice president and the majority of the cabinet believe the president is unable to serve his position for any reason (other than a political one), Big House and Lynching and African’t. the vice president will become president until the president can prove his own competency, and when this occurs, the congress will decide who is more fit to lead the nation.” WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? This is an art blog, not a political blog. but then we’ll have to deal with Pence. Jane! what happened to separation of church and state? Executive orders flying out of the Oval Office at lightning speed. Jane?! build that stupid wall? Repeal Obamacare? Gag order on the EPA? Alternative facts? WHAT BIZZARO ALTERNATE UNIVERSE ARE WE LIVING IN?
Sorry. I’ll try again next week.
