The first is Richard Armitage’s weigh-in on Trump’s election. There’s a discussion about it here, where Servetus posted it. I saw early fan replies on FB. Almost all were approving or glowing or gushing. I haven’t checked all the replies, or Twitter all day, but I did see Armitage’s own comment/reply in my notifications awhile ago.
Perhaps Richard Armitage realized on his own, or more likely, was aware of some fan criticism. He decided to explain and educate us – because we didn’t know he quoted from the play he is currently in at The Roundabout Theater. Apparently, he thought we probably didn’t read Mile Bartlett’s play any number of times or travel across the country and even the globe to see that play from one to maybe 26 times, and some are still counting. Maybe he didn’t know that fans who missed those opportunities were lobbying hard for a digital version of the play he is in or scouring Twitter for SD shots and images of the stage.
Well, we did. And we know that the first quote is no different than the second quote which resonated with Richard Armitage, for its lack of pertinence to the current situation and the potential future. Perhaps the word wall resonated, and a wall is relevant to the conversation – but trust me, no one believes now that, metaphorically, anything like The Wall is going to be coming down any time soon.
Either will any ceilings.
