Fake Video! Trump Tweets Creepy 'Independence Day' Spoof Starring Him

05/16/2020 07:57 pm ET Updated 1 hour ago

It’s not entirely clear if “the president” speech in the spoof is calling Americans to a reopened economy — or to continue fighting for their lives.

By Mary Papenfuss



President Donald Trump on Saturday tweeted a video of a grotesquely transformed scene from the 1996 movie “Independence Day” that stuck images of Republicans’ (and Donald Trump Jr.‘s) heads on actors’ bodies — and made Trump the hero.

Trump apparently viewed the manipulated clip as calling Americans back to a reopened economy amid the COVID-19 crisis. But the speech could also be interpreted as a call to Americans to fight for their lives.

In the actual film, the world is being destroyed by a mighty extraterrestrial force. A ragtag band of pilots saves the day — on the Fourth of July.

The chosen scene from the real film features fictional president Thomas J. Whitmore, a former Gulf War fighter pilot — played by Bill Pullman — calling the heroes to action.

15. The thing is, Skittles...

is when history is written, and it won't take long after Trump leaves office, he'll be torn to shreds as the most feckless, divisive president in history. Anyone who defended him, abetted him, or agreed with him on almost every aspect of his administration will be judged the same way. I just don't get it. He's been a total failure, and every republican has been a total failure as well. Republican party politics has been lowered to a suicide pact under Trump's control of the party. That's fine with me, actually, but what comes after Trump? It scares me. Fascism is knocking on our country's door.
