Take a look at this 1950's episode of "Amos and Andy." Understand what you see as explaining the present day phenomenon of "Alternative Reality" promoted by the Trump Conspiracy.
This episode can be seen as the way the government relates to the people and also reveals the way the people can prevail.
This episode reminds me of the Trump Presidency. Trump is the "Kingfish" character on the American political scene.
"Andy" on the other hand represents the American Electorate which is being fucked over by Trump doing a "Kingfish" on the PEOPLE.
If you haven't seen an Amos and Andy episode this one is a good one to begin with.
