Trump tweets clip of 'Independence Day' with himself, allies edited in

Source: The Hill

President Trump on Saturday posted a heavily doctored clip from the 1996 movie "Independence Day" featuring himself as Bill Pullman's character delivering a motivational speech to GOP allies, who were also photoshopped into the video.

Charlie Kirk from Turning Point USA, Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity from Fox News, and several other Republican allies can be seen gawking at Trump's "speech," which is actually Pullman's monologue from the film.

The video was created by Twitter meme account Mad Liberals, an account dedicated to creating memes for Trump and other GOP figures.

-snip-

The video edit hit a relevant note, as the creator likened Trump's motivation to reopen the country to the following line in Pullman's speech: "And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday but as the day the world declared in one voice, 'We will not go quietly into the night!'"

Trump, his allies, and his supporters are ALL delusional.

The original clip from the film, where actor Bill Pullman is much closer to a real president than Trump could ever be:

3. What a piss poor excuse for

a president. He is a disgrace. Is making this pile of crap what he was doing instead of making sure medical workers has enough PPE's? So, HE was the cream of the gop crop that they chose to be their leader? What a disaster, he thinks he is a reality TV "star".

5. He's the schmuck who buys a trophy in a pawnshop. . .

. . .polishes it up, then preens around and plays make-believe that HE won that trophy, that HE's a champion.
But when he takes a closer look at the brass, the reflection staring back at him is that
of a L-O-S-E-R.

when I saw it on DU at 2 PM. Then I read all the replies after my reply and realized I was not alone. That is the world's worst made video EVER! A cat dancing around on a keyboard could put something together that would be 1 million % more professional in appearance.

Bill Pullman reprising his role as President, but with a message about saving the country from Trump.

By the end of the day there should be dozens of parodies with this clip and different audio. He has opened the door to massive ridicule.

25. How much

can the producers of the film Independence Day sue Trump and the GOP for? Every film has that statement at the end of the credits about "All Rights Reserved under penalty of law!

Trump posted it!!!

26. Can't Bill Pullman sue??????????

Last edited Sun May 17, 2020, 10:38 AM - Edit history (1)

I had a long discussion with someone on FB about this. He apparently works with media law. He said it was parody and therefore no cause to sue. I assured him that the definition of parody was comic and this certainly was not intended to be funny. He assured me it was protected use. I pretty much said the law should be inline with the actual definition.

27. Too funny. Reduced to stealing a liberal movie character.



Reminds me yet again that today's Republicans don't have even one semi-great leader they can point to as their own. Sure, they claim Lincoln for lack of anything else, but he and the new Republican Party were the very antithesis of today's Republicans, and underneath most must know it. They invoke Lincoln's name but reject him. And now Bill Pullman's movie character.

Btw, down here in the deep south most conservatives do not know that the ruling classes didn't allow Lincoln's name on the ballots of almost all states, with most of their great-grandparents' loyally cheering that denial of their own rights. Cons of those days didn't like Lincoln at all, and southern cons were rabid on the subject.

video like that with them in it instead? Of course they would never do such a thing, but if they did....
