The twice-impeached former president Donald trump memorialized the 20th anniversary of 9/11 not at Ground Zero, the Pentagon or in Shanksville, Pennsylvania but in a milieu where he is more comfortable: The Hard Rock and Casino in Hollywood Florida where he provided live commentary for the Evander Holyfield vs. Vitor Belfort fight.
The match between a 58-year-old Holyfield and the 44-year-old Belfort was a sideshow carnival act, and therefore it made perfect sense for a Barnum Bailey type con artist to provide commentary.
With his diminutive doll’s hands and corpulent physique Trump wouldn’t make much of a pugilist, he would float like a whale and sting like a bunny. But he used his platform to take a few jabs at Joe Biden, especially for his disastrous Afghan exit strategy.
Mercifully, Belfort defeated Holyfield with a first-round TKO, Holyfield might not have survived another round and I would have killed myself rather than endure another round of Trump’s insipid commentary.
The boxing exhibition was a perfect metaphor for the state of celebrity boxing and reality show politics.
