As Rahul Gandhi Kejriwalifies, Kejriwal inches towards Trumpification

The media has a million flaws. They lie. The misrepresent. They distort. The further an agenda. But not covering a bridge inauguration by the CM of a union territory is not something one can fault them for.

Aam Aadmi Party supremo and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has inspired Congress President Rahul Gandhi who was already drawing inspiration from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. But now Arvind Kejriwal has trumped them all. Two years after the process begun, he has metamorphosed into the President of the United States, Donald Trump.

Now, Trump’s pure, unadulterated hatred for media is quite well-known. Especially for CNN.

He mentions how media is inaccurately reporting what he is saying, doing and everything else about him.

He is also regularly pointing out how people close to him are targeted by everyone wrongly.

He also regularly likes to tell the world that despite him doing all great things, the media is showing him in a bad light.

Taking a leaf out of Donald Trump’s books, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal has slowly Trumpified. Today he has said how the media had ‘blacked out’ his yesterday’s speech. In his words, it was done because he was ‘challenging Modiji’s politics’.

In reality, he was inaugurating a ‘bridge’ which took fourteen years to finally materialise. A chief minister of a state inaugurating a bridge.

Then, like Trump, he goes and questions the media whether their behaviour that they reported the fact AAP MLA pushed a BJP MP who was standing there was okay.

And then questions whether India’s largest selling English daily is under pressure to not cover his speech.

Is the country’s media under Modi’s grip?

Because there clearly cannot be any other reason for the media to not cover the inauguration of a bridge by the Chief Minister of Delhi. How can anyone not think the AAP supremo is as important as he thinks he is? Perhaps people were more interested in knowing excess of force by Delhi Police which arrested a man because his kids burst crackers? Or how a Kashmiri student who went missing from Sharda University near Delhi had allegedly joined the IS?

Or just the fact that his party and his party supporters including his IT cell head were busy passing off a picture of a bridge in Rotterdam as the bridge he was supposed to inaugurate that day? Maybe people have just lost interest in reading, hearing what Kejriwal has to say because there is only this much of whininess one could tolerate, especially when they have an option of a clown prince who is way more entertaining?

But then, what Trump does or does not do makes it to news because he heads the world’s most powerful nation. Kejriwal, on the other hand, is a poor man’s Trump, who heads an army of zombies busy being an annoyance in the lives of voters who elected him. Kejriwal has still a long way to go before he completely Trumpifies.

The media has a million flaws. They lie. The misrepresent. They distort. The further an agenda. But not covering a bridge inauguration by the CM of a union territory is not something one can fault them for. It is time Kejriwal realises that the rest of the world is not obliged to indulge the delusions of grandeur about himself. Every word that comes out of his mouth is not of paramount importance to the rest of the world or even, the rest of the country.

Media will focus on what they think their readers/viewers are interested in. Perhaps it is time for Kejriwal to realise, that outside his little band of zombies, the country doesn’t care about his incessant whining.
