trigger warning: rape, domestic violence
So South Park hit a new low today comparing Ryan, McConnell and Pence to rape victims who get fucked by Trump and are caught in the same abusive psychic of domestic relationships as done with Cartman & Heidi. So not only are Matt and Trey continuing on from this plotline, but horribly, HORRIBLY misusing it. The idea is that Heidi will “double down” on being dumped by Cartman because everyone will dog on her and tell her she was crazy/stupid for loving Cartman in the first place. They want to compare Trump voters to this attitude as well. The problem is the episode goes beyond this and says that the Republicans in power are in a similar situation cause Garrison/Trump is so brutal and smart enough about human psychology.
I’m so done with South Park after this season. It hasn’t even been all that bad, but the broad strokes don’t work here.
