Golden Shower Reports Still Rain Down

So the Putin/Trump meeting in Helsinki is done, leaving behind no end of jokes about the Russian leader getting a…er, ah…gust occupation (work it out with your thesaurus) from the American president. But, what we find surprising is that another type of humor is also flourishing—to wit, speculation that Russian agents filmed Trump either getting a (gross) “golden shower” from prostitutes while he was in Moscow, and/or that they have pictures of him requesting that they urinate in the same bed that the Obamas had slept in before.

The question, though, is why this particular stream of comedy continues to, er, flow with such vigor. One would have thought it would have trickled down to a mere rivulet by this time. But, no, the current is still strong. And this kind of humor just keeps (water)skiing along.

Maybe this joke never loses its, um, tang because on some level we know that der Drumpf is precisely the sort of individual for whom these stories could be true…indeed, are almost certainly true, in the metaphorical sense if not the literal. Deep in our hearts, or bladders, we know that he really is the kind of sexual pervert who’d get a thrill out of it. And/or, his is the kind of twisted and immature mind that would fixate on the Obamas and attempt some kind of sick revenge on them by wetting their bed.

And thus the curious, but real wisdom of popular culture. It may be scatological, or maybe urological, but it says …in droplet form…what the high culture does not dare to whisper.
