Saturday Night Live Imagines A Space Alien Invasion With Commander-in-Chief Trump
In movies about disasters in general (like Armageddon or Air Force One) and space invasions in particular (like Independence Day), the US always overcomes crisis under the leadership of a steely and professional president. Perhaps that’s the fiction part of science fiction.
This week, Saturday Night Live imagined what would happen if President Donald Trump were in charge during such a space invasion. Would he be more concerned about his business developments on the aliens’ home planet and his margin of victory in the popular vote?
Pretty funny, but not the best Independence Day parody the show has ever done. That would have to be in 1996, when Bob Dole debated President Whitmore about his handling of the space monsters’ fireballs.
