Trump’s only venture into theatre was a bust
Donald Trump is preparing to use an extraordinarily powerful bully pulpit to promote the Trump legacy as a blue-collar billionaire. What better way to drain the swamp than hitting out at left-wing media and cultural elites.
The first victims of Donald Trump’s promise to drain the swamp are the only two federal agencies with a specific arts and culture mandate. This is the president’s first salvo in the war against the arts but it certainly won’t be the last. That swamp is just too appealing. Too bad his Broadway debut was such a bust.
