Today, Mary Shelley's classic tale collides with Donald Trump.

Two hundred years after its publication in January 1818, Frankenstein still speaks to us directly as a myth about political life.

Trump, like the monster, now speaks to the GOP:
“You are my creator, but I am your master; Obey!

Putin assisted in the creation of this monster. He “trumped up” one more terrifying and menacing than any that has appeared in horror films: Trumpenstein!

"To rouse its voters, the GOP exploited hate, anger, and paranoia—and set the stage for the tycoon."

Notably, Putin is not the only ones to blame for this invention. Like his predecessor Frankenstein, Trumpenstein needed an energy source. Inspired by the prototype, Fox News joined the experiment. Who else could easily provide the high-voltage power and interconnected network needed to supply energy to such a contraption? Given life support through the electricity of Fox News, Trumpenstein has emerged as a dangerous monster.
