Life Imitates Art Again

Sigh... this week, Glorious Leader Trump announced that (shudder) he's running for emperor  president again in 2020, should the world still exist at that time.

Apparently Trump's decided to tweak his old "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan a bit, and came up with a new and improved one. It's now "Keep America Great."

There's one major problem with this slogan— it's already been used.

It was used as a tagline by the 2016 action/horror/satirical film The Purge: Election Year. Yeah, that movie.

Jesus Jetskiing Christ On A Cracker. You couldn't deliberately write something this outlandish and horrifying if you tried. Of all the goddamned movies Trump could have aped, and he picks one about an annual government-sponsored culling of America's minorities and poor, to free up resources for the One Percent.

Obviously this campaign slogan will have to be changed, and fast. In the interest of goodwill, I have a few alternate suggestions:

How about the 1998 film Armageddon, with it's tagline "Earth. It Was Fun While It Lasted." Seems pretty apt, in light of our Beloved Leader's recent antics.

No? OK, then how about 2004's Alien Vs Predator, with it's "Whoever Wins... We Lose" tagline? Seems pretty appropos, considering the way the last election went.

I've got it! Trump can use 2005's Saw II. The one whose tagline read, "Oh Yes, There Will Be Blood."

I've got it! The perfect tagline to celebrate the spine-chilling notion that the man currently occupying the White House could very well do so until 2024. 1986's The Fly, with its shockingly accurate tag, "Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid."
