[trump] It can happen here: But has it? The 1933 scenario is no longer hypothetical … Salon on President Trump and What Happens Next … ‘The whole scenario remains deeply ludicrous, although it long ago stopped being funny. It more closely resembles a plot twist in an Alan Moore graphic novel than anything any of us expected to see in the real world: A reality TV star and real estate salesman with the demeanor and intellect of a petulant child has been elected president with a minority of the vote, thanks to a flukey electoral system, a severely divided and demoralized electorate, a beleaguered and overconfident opponent and a concatenation of other circumstances too strange for fiction.’

That comment ‘It more closely resembles a plot twist in an Alan Moore graphic novel than anything any of us expected to see in the real world’ is interesting. Personally I’d say Moore’s thoughtful writing has been desperately trying to prepare us for eventualities like the election of president Trump! I suppose it just goes to show that even the best authors have very little control over what readers choose to take from their work
