Oh, is it time again to say "Fuck Trump gently in the ear with a swarm of pissed-off hornets?"?

Err, right. The Robotech version of Macross is that greatest love story? The author needs to read some better fiction and watch some classic movies -- and probably see a few plays.

I find this kind of hyperbole entertaining sometimes--I once wrote a pretend treatise on the philosophical Secret Meaning of "Voltron"--but yeah, using this much superlative is probably also just clickbait.
Entertaining article, anyway.
