There is no cartoonish super villain more popular these days than Donald Trump. If you take what Trump says seriously, which many do, the country is spiraling out of control to the Dark Side. If you look at Trump as nothing more than a bloviating entertainer whose schtick has long passed its expiration point, well, it’s darn right fun to make mock him.
There is no mocking better than this.
It helps that Darth Vader doesn’t have, you know, a mouth that the voice over has to match, but still, the Death Star with a Trump banner is amazing.
“I’m a very very strong believer in Christianity and religion.”
“Don’t try to frighten us with your sorcerer’s ways, Lord Vader.”
Or this one, as Vader inspects the Millennium Falcon.
“You won’t get angry at me if I talk about somebody that you like? If you do, that’s okay too, I don’t care. I mean, how stupid are we?”
Or his thoughts on war, perhaps?
“I’m more militaristic than anybody in this room. I’m really good at war. I love war, in a certain way. But only when we win. By the way, when was the last time we won a war?”
Remember, fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to…well, this.
