How do you think the Trump presidency will change the movie, television, music and comedy culture?
Trump believes in winning and being strong which is in complete opposition to the last decade of victim culture that has seeped through the arts. Will Trump’s mindset be something that can be trickled into entertainment with a shift in the current dynamics?
When you look at every decade, there is something reflective between those who were in power and the cultural tone. What impact will this have on the various aspects of media?
I wonder if movies will be more patriotic and testosterone filled as they were in the 1980’s. Will music see a turn from the happy-go-lucky-pop feel to something that is totally new, radical and hardcore? Will television return to shows that are more representative of working class Americans as was the case in the 1970’s with Norman Lear productions? And will comedy continue in it’s over-saturated stale rut of hackneyed hate of Republicans or will this spur more Nick DiPaolo-esque comedians who mock the Left? It seems that the alt-Right is now the counter-culture while the Democrats are the fascist elites so it would be interesting to see how comedians deconstruct this new tide.
It should be rather interesting to see how this all plays out.
