It might be snowing in Maine on the first Friday of Spring, but there was good news from Washington, DC today…
The GOP’s new healthcare plan, aka Trumpcare aka RepublicansDon’tCare, didn’t make it past Congress.
Many will see this as a victory for the American people, a crushing defeat for President Trump, and a sign that the country is moving in the right direction.
Perhaps it is now only a matter of time before President Trump is exiled so that sanity can prevail.
But where will he be sent? Napoleon was exiled to Elba, but I don’t think that is far enough away to satisfy most Americans. Plus, I don’t even want to think about what would happen if Trump and Napoleon’s Ghost got together and began to plot their comebacks.
Which made me realize that we have the perfect topic for this week’s visit to the Friday Night Think Tank…
This week’s topic: To where should Donald Trump be exiled once the American people come to their senses and realize there’s a much easier way to make America great again?
I think Trump needs to be sent to a destination far, far away. A place where he can ramble on and on until he’s blue in the face and no one will be able to hear him.
Plus, the place shouldn’t have internet access so he can’t harass us via Twitter.
I’ve searched both my feelings and my Deep Thoughts, and I believe Trump should be exiled to Dagobah.
If it was good enough for Yoda, then it’s certainly good enough for Trump. That misty, swampy, scary place that kept Master Yoda safe from the Empire should be perfect for keeping Americans safe from Donald Trump.
Do you like this idea, Modern Philosophers?
Like or like not, there is no Trump.
As long as we’re traveling through the Star Wars universe, I think that Hoth would be another suitable place of exile for the winner of the Electoral College.
I think whatever the hell that is on the top of Trump’s should keep him warm enough, but the cold weather will keep him inside and prevent him from ever trying to escape.
He could pass the time by building a wall to try to keep out the cold, and he’d better hope whatever health plan he has at the time of exile covers frostbite.
It took the Empire a long time to find the Rebellion when it moved its base to Hoth, so I’m guessing Steve Bannon probably won’t be able to track down his master any time soon if we send him to the one planet that makes Maine look like the tropics.
Nothing bad has ever happened to anyone who chose that space station as a place of residence, right?
Of course, we’d want to make sure the main weapon has been put out of commission, and that the Death Star is locked into one location from which it can never leave.
Those are three very solid options for Trump’s exile. What did you have in mind?
If you don’t want to be exiled along with Trump, you’d better not forget to follow me on my blog and on Pinterest!
