AMERIKKATRUM

Written By Matthew J. Cooper

For a long time I thought it was a joke. When Donald John Trump announced his candidacy for the 2016 United States presidential election in June 2015, I figured he was looking to set a new personal record of his greatest troll yet. I mean, really, come on . . . president? Leader of the free world? I can’t recall a time that I’ve heard Trump speak and didn’t instinctively think of Frank Caliendo’s dead-on impersonation of him.

From the day Muhammad Ali was born on January 17, 1942, until the day he made his transition on June 3, 2016, he floated. And while “The Greatest” is no longer with us in his physical form, the legacy that he left will forever live on. Read the rest of this entry »
