I never thought I’d live in a world where a congressman actually used the Netflix show “Stranger Things” in a real presentation he did about Donald Trump. This is the world we live in folks. This is a real video. It’s not “fake news.” This was literally on C-SPAN today. Rep David Cicilline (D-RI) delivers a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives referring to Stranger Things and you have to think that the world is kind of ending right?
I suppose I can understand using pop culture as way to prove your point but this isn’t high school. This isn’t college. I mean this is the kind of thing you’d do if you were making a National History Day video in middle school. It’s unfortunate too because I, like many of you, love Stranger Things and now I have to associate this video with that show? Unacceptable.
Like I said, I guess the attempt was OK but the execution was beyond awful. How do some people in politics make a living? I don’t get it. Sure maybe this is how you reach Trump fans but I’m pretty sure this guy doesn’t even watch Stranger Things.
