Will Trump ever drain the Sinkhole?

[ by Charles Cameron — if hell exists — and we’re easily persuaded it does — best believe in paradise, too ]

Bryan Alexander of Infocult headed his report, Earth opens campaign against Trump. Bryan has been following sinkholes around the globe for some time now, and has also been keeping a wary eye on Donald Trump, so the correlation wouldn’t surprise him, and he leaped to causation, with or without good reason.

Let’s take a look, first, at the hole itself:

It’s black, as though part of the world had been redacted for security reasons.

Sinkoles are not uncommon in Florida, and frequently feast on human habitations:

    “Draining the sinkhole” doesn’t work as a metaphor. Sinkholes are formed when material underground is removed, often by water. So they themselves are drains. The metaphorical significance, it seems to me, is that the very earth is trying to drain the pestilence that is Trump.

    LOL, yes Cheryl, you’re right of course. I just dropped “sinkhole” in where “swamp” might be expected for the mild shock value ; )
    I’m secretly a fan of clickbait, at least where my own work is concerned.
