WTF? Donald Trump is all over the place talking shit about Rosie O'Donnell because she dared to question his role as some sort of moral compass in the whole Miss Underage USA goes drinking so should she lose her crown debate. First of all, I think it's gross that he "owns" the Miss USA pageant. Second of all, I find it difficult to sympathize with mean-spirited millionaires, especially millionaires who make stupid reality TV. Third of all, his over-reaction to RO's playful yet valid critique of the whole scenario is petty and ridiculous. He's called her ugly, fat, and repulsive. He made disparaging references to her sexuality, suggesting that RO is acting out of suppressed desire for Miss USA. And he's said all sorts of other stupid stuff. He's just this white blustery angry man face. He's so offensive. What the fuck does he care what RO says about him? He's such an ass. I wish he had to pay a tax for every mean thing he's ever done. I bet that'd dry him up pretty quick.

Thematically, it's about the very simple idea that, in this Postmodern world of ours, human beings—all of us—are worth less. We're worth less every day, despite the fact that some of us are achieving more and more. It's the triumph of capitalism.
