Gotterdammerung, Mexican style

Is this sudden surge of public self-immolation caused by a virus like Zika, or just a fad fed by the flames of social media? Anthony Weiner leads the pack with three separate attempts to destroy himself in front of the world with his sati of sexting. Donald Trump hold the record for total amount of news coverage of his self annihilation, only knocked briefly from the headlines by Ryan Lochte. And now we have Mexico's president, Enrique Peña Nieto, making what has been called an 'historical mistake' and a 'national humiliation' by agreeing to meet to with the Republican contender. Peña Nieto has managed to add Trump's insults to the injury of his inept, corrupt government.
What's going on out there?
