If you haven’t heard the ‘story’ of the ‘frog in boiling water,’ this is a good time to relate it to what is happening as America enters crisis mode because our president is melting down in epic fashion.
The story goes like this: ‘If you put a frog in a pot of cool water and slowly raise the temperature to boiling, it will stay in the water and eventually die from the heat. But if you put a frog in a pot of already-boiling water, it will immediately jump out to save its life.’
Now, I haven’t personally tested the theory, but it sure seems to describe the situation we, as Americans, are dealing with as we watch Trump melt down. We have become so used to the slowly rising level of crisis and scandal since Trump became president, we just kind of chalk things up to, ‘oh well, that’s Trump for you.’ But in reality, we are all going to be boiled to death if we don’t wake up and jump out of this mess right now.
