Movie Time

E369BC62-3B7C-41AE-B3DF-FD96F3C24BCBDonald Trump says that he is “hearing more and more people say the level of violence on video games is really shaping young people’s thoughts. And you go one further step and that’s the movies.”

Yes, with respect to movies and video games, Trump is proposing something truly innovative. “Maybe they have to put a ratings system for that,” he suggested.

And just as Trump said last year that “nobody knew that health care could be so complicated,” he now apparently believes that nobody before him thought that movies and video games should have age-based ratings.

Has Donald Trump ever gone to see a movie? Does he not realize that there has long been an age-ratings system for movies that depict violence? That system from the Motion Picture Association of America was implemented in the Sixties. It rates movies based upon violence, sexual content, and language, and it’s recognizable to almost everyone who lives in the country. Who doesn’t know the difference between a G-rated movie and an R-rated movie?

A similar ratings system devised by the Entertainment Software Rating Board has also been implemented and is widely adopted for video games, with T-rated and M-rated games restricted to people 13 or older and 17 or older, respectively.

But best of all, Trump’s movie and video game ratings system will take all the pressure off the NRA, since what’s really behind mass shootings is video game and movie violence, not guns.

The President of the United States is a fucking moron.

Sorry that this is my second politically oriented post of the day, but there’s so much crazy shit going on that it’s hard not to comment on it.

    Oh my god…you can’t make this shit up! And to think I almost gave him credit for his little listening circle stunt. He’s already hawking NRA talking points today. SMH. Sad.

    Does Trump live on planet Earth? It is hard to tell when he says stuff like this, “We have to look at the internet, because a lot of bad things are happening to young kids and young minds, and their minds are being formed, and we have to do something about maybe what they’re seeing and how they’re seeing it. And also video games. I’m hearing more and more people say the level of violence on video games is really shaping young people’s thoughts. And you go one further step and that’s the movies. You see these movies, and they’re so violent, a kid is able to see the movie if sex isn’t involved, but killing is involved, and maybe we need to put a rating system for that.”

      Thanks for posting his entire quote. It makes him appear even more insane than my excerpts.

    I go through spells where I just have to avoid the news and I managed to miss this one. I still can’t believe he is in the white house… SMH
