Some people were hoping that the North Carolina Tar Heels vs Oregon Ducks Holiday Bowl 2022 Shirt But I will love this “inevitable” failure of the Trump presidency will once and for all cure Americans of the love for celebrity politics. This is naive and shortsighted. First of all, for many Republicans he did not fail at all. Second, even when many will be unhappy with him, and be wary of other celebrity politicians, they don’t see any better alternatives out there. This is the main reason that celebrities are (thinking of) entering politics and that people are (thinking of) voting for them: the lack of attractive options among experienced politicians. Remember that in 2016 Trump started in a field of 17 candidates for the Republican nomination – only one of them had a similar name recognition, Jeb Bush. While the Democrats had a clear frontrunner, keeping other party insiders out of the race, the almost successful challenge by outsider Bernie Sanders was evidence of the frustration with Hillary Clinton among many Democratic party faithfuls. As long as the Republican establishment continues to kowtow to Trump’s every wish, and the Democratic establishment does not get it’s act together in terms of a new and unified program for 2022 outsiders will see a chance to enter the race, and voters will look for outside options. In a political system where money and name recognition are key factors in winning elections, celebrities are well positioned to do well, particularly within a field of uninspired and uninspiring professional politicians.
