He, like politicians within both current Presidential campaigns, has been tagged in divergent ways. Ruthless, admirable, cutthroat, heroic, truthful, truthless and other descriptions represent some of the many labels. So, will one of the world’s most renowned businessmen select an unexpected election partner? Of course, lighthearted viewers quickly recognized that the businessman mentioned was Donald Trump and the fictional Vice Presidential partner in question is ‘Victor Newman’ (Eric Braeden), who rules ‘The Young and the Restless’.
As loyal digital voters know, yesterday’s cheeky feature centered upon Braeden’s actual appearance with the leading member of the Democratic party. The teaser that ended that digital feature promised that equal time would be afforded to the other side, in order to remain nonpartisan. As such, the ‘Mustache’ must now be linked to the potential Presidential nominee of the Republican party.
When emotion is considered, voters who believe in making America great again would likely embrace ‘Victor Newman’s’ job creation ability. He’s employed tens of thousands of people in the United States, and across the globe, via his conglomerate. This man’s acumen could be mined to help revive the job’s engine within this country. Why not have two heads of executive industry leading the government instead of one?
But, the political wonk’s point of view must be addressed as well because the electoral map is crucial for victory in the fall. That’s why Trump’s New York values could be supplemented by Wisconsin-style ethics. Yes, an East Coast coalition might work well with Midwestern modernity in 2016.
Meanwhile, according to YR’s video spoilers, ‘Victor’ will soon lie in a Genoa City hospital bed. Feeling betrayed by family and friends including: ‘Nikki’ (Melody Thomas Scott), ‘Adam’ (Justin Hartley), ‘Noah’ (Robert Adamson) and others, the ‘Black Knight’ is seen erupting in anger. So, the thought of finding consolation in Washington, D.C., could be couched as part of a medial remedy for his ills.
This scribe’s imagined rumors of the second highest political post in the land being offered to a fictional man isn’t too different than some daytime drama’s plot points. But, just as yesterday’s story was aimed at the funny bone on the other side, so too has this off-handed tale been projected for hilarity. And with that, only those who take any of the characters mentioned this weekend too seriously, will be offended, or claim to be so. As for the rest of the masses, they know that national politics has long been a real life soap opera that boasts a theme song aptly entitled ‘Hail to the Chief’.
