Fareed Zakaria of CNN went to see the New York City Public Theater’s rendition of Julius Cesar, modernized to fit President Trump, which essentially depicts the gruesome assassination of the POTUS. It’s after the play, however, where things take an equally dark twist, as Zakaria so enjoyed the play that he declared it a “masterpiece” and has publicly recommended it to others.
“If you’re in NYC, go see Julius Caesar, free in Central Park,” Zakaria tweeted 13 days ago, “brilliantly interpreted for Trump era. A masterpiece[.]”

Two high-profile sponsors, Delta Airlines and Bank of America, have dumped their sponsorship of the Public Theater with, I would assume, more to come. Not all have dropped it just yet including, at the time of writing this, American Express and New York Magazine.
