When Real Life Copies Reel Life
After every Trump tweetstorm, but most especially the latest one about witch hunts and Hillary Clinton and Rod Rosenstein and Richard Mueller that is becoming frenetic to the point of a national meltdown, I keep remembering a favorite line from Woody Allen's Bananas, after the South American coup and the new despot, El Presidente, proclaims a long list of comically lunatic rules. like "From now own, everyone must wear their underwear on the outside."
I was going to give the punchline, but actually found the scene. Woody Allen has a funny set-up, but it's his companion who gets the joke.
