TOTALLY OFF THE WALL….WHAT IF?
If this election were a Sci-Fi action adventure…which it is, and I were the script writer, I would have to insert something very dramatic into the piece to make it a WOW! I would want every movie goer to walk out going…WOW – DID YOU SEE HOW THEY DID THAT AT the END!!! WOW!
So, I got to thinking…given all the things seen so far and wanting to pick up the pace so the good guy wins in the end…I would write something like this…(remember this is a Sci-Fi action adventure not real life desires).
The race is rigged, everyone is getting voter fraud sloshed at them left and right. The GOP is allowing the Canadian to dance his devil jig and get away with every inconceivable voter fraud trick in the book – even committing down right felonies that go ignored. The Hillary is doing the same to Bernie. It gets so bad that Trump and Sanders are now state by state, knocked out of the primaries through fraud and the winners are Hillary and Cruz.
Then… as the people are angry as hell and in shock….Hillary is indicted and Cruz is found ineligible to run for office by a court judgment. The people are now dazed and shocked…angry…not sure what the heck is going on. and only comforted by Trump tweets to remain calm. Not to riot. People are unsure if the Donald was put up to tweeting hope or if he has a plan….they light up social media exchanging ideas on what the Trump might be doing. Every idea imaginable is being tossed about and tweeted from a law suit to military coupe’, even the kitchen sink is thrown in as a possible idea.
The GOP hold a brokered convention and pull in their secret candidate to replace Cruz. The Dems do the same. The people are angry and the scene ends with the people in disarray.
The SUPER READS: ONE WEEK LATER
The scene opens and the GOP and Dems are both holding their Conventions on the same day announcing their new candidate pics..
Meanwhile, at the same time, the people are in front of the capital building yelling out in outrage- “WE WANT TRUMP! WE WANT TRUMP! The dems are also on the capitol lawn they are shouting – “WE WANT BERNIE! WE WANT BERNIE!” The convention media coverage is slim because only hundreds are attending. The media breaks away to the Capital where the real news is breaking. A never before event where millions as far as the eye can see are gathered, the shouts have climaxed into a cacophony of blurred sound like HAARP before an earthquake . Trump tweets -“Be calm. GOP made big mistake. Stay calm.”
Bernie doesn’t tweet but has sent a messenger to the capital. He speaks loudly through a megaphone, “Bernie says, hold it. He’ll be here after his underwear dries on the radiator.” Bernie crowd goes wild and cheers louder.
Meanwhile the GOP and Dems announce their picks to empty auditoriums. News is coming in from the reporters at the Capitol of this strange event of what they are terming “voter denial”.
In the distant sky a whirr is heard. One by one the people begin to look up, the whirring sound grows louder. A speck is seen off in the horizon of the sky. Suddenly the shouts turn into a deep silence. In the sky the speck enlarges as it comes closer….it is a helicopter, but not just any helicopter …..as it gets closer the people see it is THE TRUMP COPTER!
Trump supporters go wild and cheer….the Bernie supporters wait silently and watch. They wonder how long it takes for underwear to dry on the radiator??
The copter rapidly approaches and now hovers over the crowd. The people jam together like sardines in order to make room for the Trump copter to land. The copter lands and the people are cheering. The stair drops down and the first one to walk to the door is none other than….WAIT….DRUM ROLL…..BERNIE SANDERS! (Note the music score is like something out of Braveheart).
Assistants quickly put in place a podium and state of the art sound system Wi Fi’d to the copter. Trump and Bernie go to the podium. The crowd is silent.
Trump speaks, “Are you ready to make America great again?” The crowd roars. “My friend Bernie and I have decided enough is enough. After talking for a few hours, he has decided that common core sucks and the Trump plan is much better for America. ” The crowd roars. “In addition to that, we both agree on many of the same things actually. There are still some issues we are ironing out, but what is important is that we both agree – to make America great again!” The crowd cheers! “Now, we have decided to both run third party on an independent ticket together!” The crowd is hysterical at this point and beyond words….they cheer but the looks on the Bernie supporters faces are mixed? “I will let Bernie explain our joint third party run. Bernie….”
Trump steps away from the podium and Bernie steps up. He waves and the crowd goes wild. “Alright, enuff…enuff already, alright….” Bernie motions with his hands. The crowd is slowly quieted. “I want to say after Trump called and explained his idears…I really liked’em.” The crowd half cheers….”I liked his idear to take back America!” The crowd cheers and roars. “We are runnin on a third party ticket to take back what was stolen from us!” Crowd cheers, applauds, woots and shouts. “They stole our run, and now we are runnin together! To take back this corrupt government and make it work for the people!” The crowd goes wild. Bernie steps away from the mic. Trump grabs Bernies shoulder with one hand and shakes his hand with the other. “Thank you Bernie.” The crowd goes wild and cheers.
Trump takes the mic. “So you see, we decided… since we were both treated unfairly and we both had the crowds, the majority – the silent majority and together the voice of all the people!” Crowd is uncontrollable now and wildly cheering for Trump and Bernie… Trump smiling ….”That we would run together on a third party ticket.” Crowd cheers. “Bernie has accepted my offer to run as Vice President on my third party Presidential ticket.” Trumpers cheer wildly….Bernie people sputter.
Bernie hurries to the mic, “Folks…it’s a good deal. I am going to be next in line…but more important….I am back in the race and we are going to clean up the wall street and banker corruption!” The people cheer and chants of Bernie and Trump pierce the air. “You are gonna get jobs, and affordable education!” crowd cheers.
The media is in shock, the establishment is afraid….very afraid. Will they win?
END OF SCENE
I couldn’t help imagine that “what if” today. It truly would be a way to knock the establishment game into check mate. You have to agree on that one. Not that it would ever happen….but, you just can’t predict anything at this point.
