Throughout most of the 1970’s, Match Game staff writers prepared dozens of mythical Dumb Donald, fill in the blank scenarios for the show’s host, Gene Rayburn, to present to his contestants.
Obviously, this all occurred long before the real Donald’s rise to power and, yet, seeing how he has… now that we watch this game show’s yesterdays playing out today… well… there’s an added humorous dimension that’s inescapable. It tends to make one wonder if this really is mere coincidence? Of course, that does beg the follow up Q…
Might there have been a Time Machine involved… oh… say a DeLorean parked in (or in the vicinity of) the Match Game soundstage lot?
Anyway… our above Vid of the Day clip features the “fake” Dumb Donald finding new, stable employment… a prospect that his real life namesake might soon be facing down, as well.
