Spend any time talking to a Republican and eventually you will hear emotional complaints about the Participation Trophy — trophies given to every kid who participates in Little League or similar games regardless of whether they win. A number of Republicans believe this is destroying the American character.
It occurred to me though that this is exactly what Trump and the Republicans want — that Trump receive a Participation Trophy for the election. It hurts Donnie’s feelings if only Joe gets to go home with an award.
So, for the sake of the country, let’s agree to give Trump a Participation Trophy (like the image above) and allow the rest of us to move on and get back to governing.
