Fake Video! Trump Tweets Creepy 'Independence Day' Spoof Starring Him [View all]

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.
