[Exterior White House in the middle of a storm]

[Kushner]: Our approval ratings are down in the 30’s. Bannon, any ideas?

[Bannon]: We are in an outright war against Islam--a very brutal and bloody conflict.

[Trump]: I would bomb the shit out of ‘em…

[Kushner]: Oy, here we go.

[Trump]: I’d blow up every single inch, there would be nothing left...

[Kushner]: Understood, sir.

[Trump]: There’s a problem in this country and it’s Muslims. And I want the Muslim ban-

[Kushner]: The ban backfired, sir. We need an attack to make people scared.

[Conway]: Two Iraqi’s came here and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green Massacre. People don’t know that because it didn’t get covered.

[Kushner]: Damnit Kellyanne, a real attack.

[Putin, on video conference phone, interrupts: Donnie T!

[Trump]: Vladimir Putin.

[Putin]: Click link and follow along.

[Trump]: Huh, oh that’s good.

[Putin]: In year 2000, I was not popular, so I rig election. Sound familiar?

[Trump]: (Laughs) Yeah.

[Putin]: Then all these apartment buildings begin to mysteriously explode all around Russia. People are terrified! So they turn to Vladdy to make them safe. I kill terrorists and cleanse some Chechen scum. Then everyone trusts me, and I do what I want ever since.

[Ryan] Putie’s right. But, forget about Russia. Remember W? He didn’t win the popular vote either. But then 9/11 happened and his approval rating went through the roof.

[Trump]: Huh, fantastic.

[Ryan]: After the anthrax scared the hell out of congress, they could do whatever they wanted. The attacks gave them the political capital to invade Iraq.

[Trump]: We should’ve kept the oil. Maybe we’ll have another chance.

[Putin]: You will. Fear is every dictator’s best tool. Just make sure you keep confusing people by attacking media.

[Trump]: The news is fake. It’s all fake news.

[Putin]: Exactly, and keep scaring them like Bushie did with WMD.

[Trump]: You know what uranium is, right? This thing called nuclear weapons and other things. Like lots of things are done with uranium including some bad things. Nuclear holocaust would be like no other.

[Putin]: Good job Donnie, you were born to make Russ--I mean, USA great again.

[Trump]: I know what’s good, I know what’s bad and uh there’s some bad stuff going on. You know it, and I know it.
