‘Trump’ Stabbed to Death in Central Park Performance of ‘Julius Caesar’, by Daniel Nussbaum.
Shakespeare in the Park began its summer season in New York City’s Central Park last month with a “contemporary” take on the playwright’s Julius Caesar, in which the title character bears a not-so-subtle resemblance to President Donald Trump.
In an interview with Mediaite, Laura Shaeffer — who saw a recent performance of the play, which opened May 23 — said that the character of Julius Caesar in the Public Theater adaptation wears a business suit and has his hair styled in a manner similar to Trump’s.
Sheaffer added that the character of Calpurnia, Caesar’s wife, speaks with a “Slavic accent” similar to that of First Lady Melania Trump.
That’s all entertaining and contemporary, and fair comment, but we all know that they would never do that to a left wing figure — like Obama. That’s part of the double standard.
