Weimerican Psycho

"Do you like Donald Trump?"
"He's OK."
"His early work was a little too corporate for my tastes, but when TRUMP 2016 came out, I think he really came into his own, politically and artistically. The whole campaign has a clear, crisp aesthetic, and a new sheen of consummate nationalism that really gives the speeches a big boost. He's been compared to Adolf Hitler, but I think Trump has a far more smooth, unstumpable sense of politics."
"Hey, Halberstram."
"Yes, Bernie?"

"Why are there copies of 'Crippled America' all over the place, are you a Republican, a National Review writer or something?"
"No, Bernie."
"Is that a raincoat?"
"Yes, it is! In 2015, Trump released this, 'Make America Great Again', his most accomplished speech. I think his undisputed masterpiece is 'The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems', a sentence so catchy, most people probably don't explore its implications, but they should, because it's not about the pleasures of modern life or the importance of economic nationalism, it's also a personal statement about Western Civilization itself. Hey Bernie!
TRY GETTING A RESERVATION AT TRUMP TOWERS NOW, YOU FUCKING STUPID BASTARD!"
