Anti-Trump Aerobics Class Builds Endurance For The Resistance — ‘5-6-7-8, F*** Mar-a-Lago!’
First off, I want to keep my options open that this really is too good to be true, that we will eventually learn it was all a magnificent hoax created by right-leaning performance artists who trolled the Resistance in the most exquisite way imaginable. This can’t be real, can it? This has to be a brilliant parody of the Left’s unhinged hatred for President Trump, right?
After all, isn’t it just a little too perfect that it takes place in … San Francisco?
Well, according to the left-wing Mother Jones, the latest iteration of Trump Derangement Syndrome, an anti-Trump aerobics class, is in fact not a hoax.
Yes, my friends, this is real.
Yes, these are the people who want to run the country again.
Yes, those are red Trump ties.
And yes, taking the class are apparent members of the male species.
As you watch the spectacle below, I’m sure you will be thinking the exact same thing I did: If my tax dollars are in any way involved, I’m going to burn down everything….
“5-6-7-8, F*** Mar-A-Lago!” This slogan is accompanied by a golf swing using the aforementioned red tie as your golf club. Apparently, there is a double meaning at work here but I am just not Woke enough to grasp it.
“Don’t buy Ivanka’s shoes!” This slogan is accompanied by a fierce kick. Okay, the kick is actually kind of gay, but it is meant to be fierce, so points for intent.
“Don’t read his tweets!” This one is special because as you shout it out, you cover your eyes with the red tie. The thinking here, I believe, is that because you cannot see with a red tie over your eyes, you can therefore not read Trump’s tweets.
“I believe in science!” As you might expect, this particular move holds a deep meaning for the Left, most especially when it is performed by a 225-pound man who believes he is a woman named Bunny.
The extra-special move, however, is saved for “Don’t build the wall!” As you shout your resistance, you stretch out your red tie and cross it with the person next to you. While being careful to make a cross-cross and not a Christian-cross, the meeting of the two red ties completes the Resistance and somewhere Gaia throws back her head with a careless laugh.
Margaret McCarthy, a performance artist, and Liat Berdugo, an assistant professor at the University of San Francisco (of course), created this anti-Trump aerobics class, which takes place at Alley Cat Books in the Mission District. The purpose is obvious; as, like, one of the creators, like, explains:
It’s really, like, a satire of what’s going on but in a completely embodied way. She, like, continued, “We’re looking to, like, really, really physicalize this current moment in the political climate.”
So there you have it — archeological proof that the Left has officially embraced and become the exact way in which they were satirized when Saturday Night Live was still funny.
