#里茲螞蟻批判性思考寫作專欄 #Alex專欄 #外師每週精選閱讀
Has the position of the president of the USA merely become yet another ceremonial post with no real power, authority or purpose, like the Queen of England, King of Thailand and Emperor of Japan? Certainly, the embarrassment that some Americans express about their Commander-In-Chief certainly seems to mirror that felt by other subjects of anachronistic heads of state that are now more ritualistic figureheads than anything else. According to anonymous reports from within the White House, there are staff actively in charge of preventing Donald Trump from taking any serious actions or making any meaningful decisions, mainly in order to prevent him causing a global calamity beyond what we already have to deal with.
Likewise, Trump’s presidency proves that the presidency is not chosen on merit, experience, intelligence, charisma or looks. Perhaps the only prerequisite is a lot of money. Therefore, as Kanye West already has lots of that – as does his wife – he might just be the perfect candidate for the next presidency! He also already has a big fanbase that would no doubt vote for him, along with the disillusioned millions who would vote for anyone besides Trump. If an egocentric, sexist, racist, totally inexperienced failure of a businessman can win the presidency of the richest and most powerful country in the world, why not a rapper?
