What we have here is a metaphor.
A metaphor that stands for our present election. The narrative is set. Established. Written down and well practiced. And along comes an outlier, a horrid creature that simply does not fit, an individual with their deplorable cadre all seriously disregarded and they tear into your set scene from oblique angles and burn down your Thanksgiving of yourself to yourself.
And the resulting show is a lot better than the one that was planned and so thoroughly intricately coordinated.
