Another show is congratulating itself for pushing the envelope by attacking President Trump. The new season of CBS’s The Good Fight plans to feature episodes on Trump’s impeachment, white supremacy, racial injustice, and the Russian golden showers scandal. Sunday’s premiere, "Day 408," opens with an anti-Trump tweet being praised by the Obamas.
Liz Reddick (Audra McDonald) posts a tweet calling President Trump a white supremacist. At the funeral of her father, a man approaches and says, “Michelle and Barack asked me to extend their condolences… They loved your tweet by the way…It had to be said.” How brave, to join the mass of people tweeting that Trump is a white supremacist.
At the funeral, the eulogizer states, “Carl Reddick was born when Nazis were marching in the streets. And he died when Nazis were marching in the streets.”
Last year’s season premiere began with star Christine Baranski watching President Trump’s inauguration in horror and angrily turning it off. This season of The Good Fight promises to be even more anti-Trump than last season.
It’s one thing for TV shows to continuously bash the 45th President, but how long are they going to keep pretending that their Trump-bashing “pushes the envelope”?
