I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried. The president-elect of the United States just released his soon-to-be trademarked new slogan. The only problem is, this isn’t the first time we have heard the line.
According to the Washington Post:
Halfway through his interview with The Washington Post, Trump shared a bit of news: He already has decided on his slogan for a reelection bid in 2020.
“Are you ready?” he said. “ ‘Keep America Great,’ exclamation point.”
“Get me my lawyer!” the president-elect shouted.
Two minutes later, one arrived.
“Will you trademark and register, if you would, if you like it — I think I like it, right? Do this: ‘Keep America Great,’ with an exclamation point. With and without an exclamation. ‘Keep America Great,’ ” Trump said.
“Got it,” the lawyer replied.
Sound familiar? In case you were wondering where you had heard “keep America great,” it was from 2016’s The Purge: Election Year. That’s right folks, Donald Trump has chosen the slogan of his administration after a horror movie based on murderous politicians seeking to weed out their competition by executing them.
There is nothing funny or clever about this. Either Trump is too ignorant to know what he has done, or he thinks the morbid irony is funny. Either way, Americans are in deep trouble in two days when that unlawful jackass takes claim of the White House.
Be afraid. Literally.
