Ah, Donald Trump.

A few years ago, Fox broadcast a parody of Trump's "job interview" show, The Apprentice. By the time "My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss" was cancelled, it seemed like a mercy killing --- these guys had contracted for ten hours of TV with about enough ideas for a few good Saturday Night Live skits. But they were really good skits --- the premiere (which, for all I know, is on YouTube someplace) was devastating, right up to the end, in which the losing team was forced to camp out in a vacant lot.

Fast-forward to this winter's edition of the show, in which then losing team will be camping out in tents. Trump is not just descending into self-parody --- he's descending into Fox's parody of himself.
