Trump's Empire Gets Its Own 'Star Wars' Opening Crawl

Seth Meyers compares the Trump Administration to the Empire.

In celebration ofStar WarsDay, Seth Meyers dropped an epic remake of the Star Wars opening crawl. Instead of fighting off the Empire and Darth Vader, it's the Trump Administration and Agent Orange. There's also a fitting title change to A New Dope.

"It is a dark time for the Republic. The galaxy is in chaos. THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION rules with an iron, baby-sized fist, from a wretched hive of scum and villainy: THE WHITE HOUSE," reads the crawl. "The emperor's dastardly henchman, Scott Pruitt, has evaded justice, in a very nice plane. Grand Moff Pence patrols the outer rim for women to avoid. And the ruthless Trump administration is hard-ish at work on its most fiendish weapon yet: THE WALL."

The clip later refers to "Jedi master Robert Mueller," who "raided the headquarters of the emperor's dumbest and most trusted lieutenant, Michael Cohen."

It continues: "Meanwhile, a courageous band of RESISTANCE fighters searches the galaxy for a secret but definitely real TAPE that could destroy the emperor once and for all."


This isn't the first time Trump's been compared to a villain. Back in 2015, several people were referring to him as He Who Must Not Be Named aka Voldemort. But J.K. Rowling was quick to correct them. "How horrible. Voldemort was nowhere near as bad," she tweeted at the time.

Anyway. May the Fourth be with us all.
