This Trumpian Horror Story Will Freak You Out

Fear, ghouls, terror. Forget it.

Nothing on Halloween is more frightening than this visit to an unsuspecting Western town by a man named Trump — a litigious narcissist who warns the town of its complete extinction. He proclaims that he, and only he, can save the townsfolk by building a … well, building a wall of course.

Don’t get this confused with the shocking story appearing nightly on MSNBC. This is a 60-year-old television clip. Or is it?

Ready, get set, hit play:

In the last two years, we learned that the only thing more horrifying than truth becoming stranger than fiction is when the truth is indistinguishable from a 1950s TV western set after the Civil War. Watching this clip from an episode of the television series Trackdown — and getting through another news cycle —  are like looking through the gates of Hell from the wrong side.

You know, there is hope, there is a way to change the channel. But it’s not called a remote. It’s called November 6th.

Happy Halloween from Lester & Charlie!

And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming,
And the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted—nevermore!
