I feel I need to add that I picture a busy day for Donald Trump as one filled with angry tweeting, scratching himself, and binging on fast foods.

One day after briefing the press in an attempt to calm nerves about the spread of the new coronavirus, President Donald Trump spent 45 minutes talking to the lead actors of a low-budget conservative play about the so-called Deep State.
Phelim McAleer, the playwright behind the play FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers, told The Daily Beast that the meeting with Trump had originally been scheduled for just 15 minutes but went 30 minutes longer than that.
“We went for a 15-minute meeting that took 45 minutes,” McAleer said. “We were there for 45 minutes in the Oval Office, and he loves it, he loves the play.”
Trump hasn’t seen the play, according to McAleer, but praised its concept: a script based entirely on congressional testimony and the text messages between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who discussed the FBI’s investigation into Trump’s campaign and Russia while having an affair. The play’s leads—Superman actor Dean Cain and former Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress Kristy Swanson—also attended the White House meeting.
McAleer said Trump complained in the meeting about “why some people are in prison [and] why other people aren’t”—an apparent re-airing of grievances that law enforcement officials involved in investigating his campaign haven’t been charged, while his own campaign staffers have been.
Good to know that while the country faces a potential health care crisis that Trump has the time to talk to two D-list celebrities about the making of a low budget play that only a handful of people are ever going to see.
Let me just take a moment to mourn the loss of my charitable feelings toward two more actors who have crossed over to the dark side.
I thought that Dean Cane was not terrible in “Lois and Clark” and while Swanson’s version of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” could not hold a candle to Sarah Michelle Gellar’s it was fun in a campy sort of way.
But now these two have joined with the likes of Kevin Sorbo, Jon Voight, and Rosanne Barr as entertainers who I would not watch if you paid me.
