If you grew up very very far away from any part of the country that has a theater district like New York City’s Broadway, you might not be familiar with the phrase “limited engagement”, in which a show is meant to only run for a short amount of time and then shut down even if it’s doing well.
If, on the other hand, you’re like me or, more importantly, like Donald Trump, who has spent most of their lives within spitting distance of literally tens of thousands of theater productions, you cannot possible have missed the never ending parade of television commercials and billboards and radio ads and magazine layouts. They literally perform parts of musicals in all the major parades in Manhattan. You would have to be a fucking moron not to know what a limited engagement is. Or you would have to be Donald Trump.
But I repeat myself:
Though Michael Moore’s Broadway debut in The Terms of My Surrender was billed as a limited engagement that was already scheduled to end October 22, President Donald Trump used its recent closing as an opportunity to address the show, which examined his presidency and administration with a decidedly critical eye.“
While not at all presidential,” he wrote, “I must point out that the Sloppy Michael Moore Show on Broadway was a TOTAL BOMB and was forced to close. Sad!”
Moore’s show began performances July 28 at the Belasco Theatre, where it opened officially August 10. It was reported in May—when the show was announced—that it would play a 12-week limited engagement.
That was from an article on Playbill.com. So now we have arrived at a point in American history where Playbill, the most innocuous, nonpartisan, website imaginable has to fact check the President of the United States because he’s simply that stupid.
This can’t possibly go on for another three years. We can never forget that Republicans inflicted this imbecile on the country just to punish us for electing a black man. Never.
