Has anyone else wondered what in the world Donald Trump has been talking about the last couple weeks regarding prayer rugs and criminals driving across the United States-Mexico border in technologically advanced cars with women whose mouths have been taped? Well, thanks to Rachel Maddow, we can finally make some sense of it all.
During her MSNBC show on Monday evening, Maddow was able to decipher the president’s strange comments, and figured out that he has simply been quoting scenes from Sicario: Day of the Soldado, a fictional movie which was released about six months ago. Surprisingly, in the movie, characters are indeed seen driving across the border in fancy cars, and — you guessed it — women’s mouths are indeed duct taped shut. And in another movie scene, prayer rugs also just so happen to be found near the border.
So what does this really mean? Well, for starters, it could mean that our beloved president is so far out of touch with reality that he believes a completely fictional movie he’s seen is actually playing out in real life.
However, as plausible as that seems, it’s equally as plausible to assume that one of his advisers. who realizes just how out of touch he may be. watched the movie and thought they could show him some of the scenes and pass them off as footage from real life, thinking Trump wouldn’t know the difference.
Either way, this is quite a troubling discovery that Maddow has made. It’s one thing to make stuff like this up in order to build your case when things aren’t going your way, but when someone is able to connect the dots and realizes everything regarding your foreign policy is based on scenes from a fictional movie, it could spell disaster for your presidency.
