At Saturday’s Trump rally in Ford Dodge, Iowa, Republican state representative Mike Sexton wowed the impressive crowd with his absolutely idiotic – and poorly done – Yoda impersonation.
“Mmm, the dark side is very powerful in Biden,” Sexton said from the stage. “He’s crooked. He doesn’t care about your country. The force is strong in Trump. He has to win. Help him, you can. Caucus for him, you should. For without his victory all hope is lost.”
Mark Hamill had the perfect answer to X: “The cringe is strong here.”
As a matter of fact. And finally, Yoda’s creator George Lucas is a lifelong progressive and Star Wars is (ahem) a warning about dictatorships:
“It was really about the Vietnam War, and that was the time when Nixon was trying to run [second] Term that made me think historically about how democracies can turn into dictatorships?” Lucas said once. “Because democracies are not overthrown, but given away.”
