It is a truth universally acknowledged, that the US presidential race has become a bit of a joke.
Talking about your own genitalia has become normal practice
Twitter has often resembled playground bickering

Comedian Louis CK, who had once fondly referred to Donald Trump as Hitler, gave this perfect analogy for the presidential race in an interview with Vulture, as pointed out by Dave Itzkoff:
It’s like if you were on a plane and you wanted to choose a pilot. You have one person, Hillary, who says, 'Here’s my license. Here’s all the thousands of flights that I’ve flown. Here’s planes I’ve flown in really difficult situations. I’ve had some good flights and some bad flights, but I’ve been flying for a very long time, and I know exactly how this plane works.'
Then you’ve got Bernie, who says, 'Everyone should get a ride right to their house with this plane.' 'Well, how are you going to do that?' 'I just think we should. It’s only fair that everyone gets to use the plane equally.'
And then Trump says, 'I’m going to fly so well. You’re not going to believe how good I’m going to fly this plane, and by the way, Hillary never flew a plane in her life.' 'She did, and we have pictures.' 'No, she never did it.' It’s insane.
