But wrestling is fake…
I just couldn’t resist writing about this. Donald Trump is the ultimate marketer. First, the good American people who rely on checks for their stimulus checks are getting a delay because Trump wanted his name directly on the checks.
I speculate so people may be “tricked” into believing it came directly from him, and hold him in high regards during the upcoming election.
This stems directly from a branding mentality that’s just a tad bit inappropriate right now. Sure, give him the credit he deserves, but let those who don’t rely on direct deposit for their taxes, likely the elderly, get their checks asap.
Now let’s get to Vince McMahon- Trump has named him as an adviser to restart the economy, according to Alistair McGeorge of Metro. These adviser’s, along others like Goodell (NFL), Manfred (MLB), Bettman (NHL), are to find the appropriate recommendations for reopening sports- and, well, entertainment.
This is precisely where it gets confusing for me because McMahon doesn’t run a league- he runs a televised soap opera (those offended, please send your hate email to: firstname.lastname@example.org). He doesn’t hold the integrity of an owner, as he’s destroyed the lives of many classic performers, I mean, wrestlers. Bottom line- he’s a laughable choice to head anything.
Who should he have chosen instead? How about anyone who hasn’t put profit in front of health and safety, when those two are the most important right now.
What do you think?
