I was shocked and heartbroken to hear that Larry Wilmore’s The Nightly Show has been cancelled and will broadcast its final show on Thursday. While I do not always agree with Larry, I respect his humanity so much. He has the decency to be completely serious when the situation calls for it, to take a stand. I respect that. He brings new voices to the air, funny, smart people who will be missed.
So #FlatLarry and I set off for the Second Life version of the Unblackening, checking out the different campaign headquarters. It was uncanny how completely each campaign headquarter captured the essence of the candidates and their campaigns.
And like her campaign, there are not a lot of people in the audience, because they are out making phonically and canvassing. The campaign HQ is quiet, but organized and effective.
Off to Trump Headquarters which like his campaign and his plans, hastily thrown together, incomplete, and unfinished. The bonfire, is that for book-burning?
There’s a second Trump HQ. This was actually a disturbing encounter. There were a few people there speaking on voice. They did not know I could hear them. “Who’s that bitch with the f*cking n-word? What n-word is that, Al Roker? Hey, bitch, is that n-word Al Roker your idol?” The other two were not audible, just murmuring, but the other guy just kept going on and on. I think Larry might be doubly offended, not just with all the n-words, but being confused with Al Roker
He then shoved me off the stage. I was trying to take a pic, making a bit of fun of giant Flat Trump by making even more giant Flat Larry, but he kept shooting at me and shoving, and muting them did not work. So I left. It was very much like being at a real Trump event.
AT Cthulhu HW we ran into Donald Trump himself, not Flat Donald, but dancing Donald. He was doing a Russian Dance. How very appropriate.
And so we ended our tour at Cthulu HQ, a bit dystopian and weird. But definitely Cthulu.
I will do a separate post on the outfit and the gorgeous shoes.
