Lewis Black On Morning Joe: Is Election 2016 A Social Experiment?

Yes, Lewis. Yes it is.

Lewis Black on Morning Joe was as terrific as you would think.

To their credit, the Morning Joe producers started the segment with Lewis Black's 2011 rant insisting on a Donald Trump presidency. Black predicted Trump's name in gold letters over the Midwest, and that we should sell the country to the Chinese before they realize it's half broken.

He was so prescient, and don't you miss Jon Stewart?

Joe Scarborough asked him "You were talking about it five, six years ago, and here we are today. Can you believe it?"

"No. The pivotal moment for me, was watching CNN...which I get a sense of what I will be like when I have a stroke..."

The pivotal point was when Sarah Palin "endorsed" Donald Trump.

"How do I satirize this? ...We are living in fiction!"
