    Trump's speeches are beating soap operas in the daytime TV ratings :soma:

    I can't even be mad about this. I know the actual Bold and the Beautiful has been cut-and-pasting most of the same key dialogue for the last five years and I've seen Liam Spencer attempt more marriages than Dayton's lost teaching jobs. Snooze. I'd watch Trump's speeches over that shit, too. :shrug:

    Trust US media to scandalise the idea that people might be more interested in the radical political shift their country is undergoing than in the daily melodrama of fictional people selling household items. If this goes on, Americans might end up caring more about securing healthcare than the Oscars. Crazy!

    Fun fact: none of the "soaps" are owned by actual soap companies. Proctor and Gamble sold their shows to Sony in the early 2000s, and one of the CBS shows is owned outright and run by the family of its creator. :P

    And yet again he interrupts daytime TV.

    I swear, I've never seen this much disruption to the daytime lineup since OJ Simpson was on trial 20 years ago. :brood: :dayton:
