After months of observing the Republican presidential candidate search, it has become obvious that Donald Trump is really the reincarnation of Pat Paulson. And as skillfully as an act in a Smothers Brothers Comedy Sketch, he is using this campaign run as a wildly successful publicity stunt for the “Trump” brand..
There is a precedent for this. If you recall in the late 60’s, Pat Paulson (a comedian on the Smothers Brothers TV show) started a fictitious campaign for president. He was so successful that CBS had the Smothers Brothers devote part of a show telling people it was all a joke and they should not waste their vote.
No one in his right mind could produce the political turmoil to his party unless it is all just a tongue-in-cheek party joke.
Here is one of Pat’s later TV appearances before his death in 1997.
