Donald Trump posted a video where he was superimposed into ‘Independence Day’

Trump Meets with Retail Leaders

Donald Trump has barely been able to golf on weekends during the pandemic, which means he’s stuck inside and doing his second-favorite activity: tweeting endlessly. Two weekends ago, he tweeted (or retweeted) almost 100 times in one 24-hour-period. It’s no secret that he’s got itchy Twitter fingers, but the tweets and retweets have always been a portrait of a man unhinged, a man untethered from reality and grossly obsessed with weird little conspiracies and petty grievances. But did you also know that he loves sh-tty computer editing which place him as the “hero” of hit ‘90s movies? Yes. He tweeted this on Saturday:

That’s a bizarre edit from a scene in Independence Day. Trump’s fat head is superimposed on Bill Pullman’s head – Pullman played the president in that fictional world. The creator of the video also added Ted Cruz, Don Jr, Ivanka, Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity. Trump liked this video so much, it was pinned to the top of his page overnight (he replaced it Sunday with a pinned “OBAMAGATE” tweet). This is how this idiot amuses himself on weekends while tens of thousands of Americans have died because of lack of testing, lack of supplies and sh-tty leadership from the top down.

For what it’s worth, Bill Pullman spoke to the Hollywood Reporter about the tweet, and merely said: “My voice belongs to no one but me, and I’m not running for president — this year.” Yeah. I never understood why Pullman’s career didn’t continue to be amazing past the ‘90s. He was a good actor and he deserves to still be a thing! All this did was remind me that I am here for a Bill Pullman resurgence. Also: Pullman’s best work was in While You Were Sleeping, an absolutely dumb story that both he and Sandra Bullock sold, 100%. Their chemistry is SO GOOD.

    Loved while you were sleeping – and him.

    • Swack says:

      Love both While You Were Sleeping and Independance Day.

    • holly hobby says:

      I love Bill Pullman! Been a fan since Ruthless People. He played the dumb himbo. As you can see he can play different characters. Why he isn’t hired more is a mystery.

      I loved how Vivica Fox chewed out the anus mouth on Twitter about this tweet.

  2. Eleonor says:

    Check his mental health.
    This man has something really wrong in his brain.

    • Esmom says:

      The fact that he thinks tweeting this kind of garbage is somehow befitting of the office, even as people are dying and scared, really is effed up. But worse are all his defenders who say it’s fine.

    • Liz version 700 says:

      This makes him look so pitiful. I agree he needs to be checked out. His speech is slipping, he can’t follow thoughts and his already terrible judgment is worsening. He actually thought this made him look tough. Meanwhile back out here in the Americas we are at 90K deaths and climbing…he won’t help but he has time to make photoshop videos…

      • Eleonor says:

        It’s like he is living in his own reality.
        I mean I was in Italy during Berlusconi, so I know a thing or two about crazy politicians, but this?
        I mean Berlusconi was corrupted as hell but he knew what he was doing, and his plan was pretty clear: avoid jail for corruption and save his business
        But Trump?

    Bill Pullman is so underrated.

  4. Paperclip says:

    Bill Pullman has had a great career. Low-key for sure, but solid. Check out The Zero Effect. Terrific performance. The Sinner, too. Love him.

    • Trashaddict says:

      He was great in Torchwood, and the Comicon fans gave him a rousing welcome when he appeared with the cast. Very low-key funny.

  5. grabbyhands says:

    I’m shocked that he didn’t go into I tweeting frenzy after Obama’s appearance on Saturday night’s salute to graduating seniors. The subtle shade was delicious and I was certain that it would unhinge him.

    • 10KTurtle says:

      I expected a tweetstorm, too. I was wondering if maybe the wifi service wasn’t very good at Camp David.

    • trout predator says:

      I know!! I was looking forward to him tweeting a list of the FAR MORE SUPER DUPERER “possible commencement speakers” Trump University would have had if the mean old DOJ would’ve just let it be great

    • Lightpurple says:

      Ivanka sent out a test tweet during Obama’s speech about how much the Trumps love the military and was told in no uncertain terms by thousands to shut up because the President was speaking. None of her paid Russian trolls showed up. Daddy’s phone was probably confiscated at that point to spare him a similar humiliation.

    • holly hobby says:

      He can’t read between the lines. That man takes things literally therefore no meltdown when the adult in the room was speaking.

  6. smcollins says:

    He’s currently starring on The Sinner with Matt Bomer and has worked steadily for years, just not as high profile on things like Independence Day. WYWS is definitely one of my guilty-pleasure favorites but Spaceballs for the win (for me)!

    • Yup, Me says:

      Bill Pullman’s comedic work is so underrated. In my family, Bill will forever be Ruthless People – “I’M ROBBING YOU!”

    • whatWHAT? says:

      LONE STAR! May the Schwartz be with you.

  7. 10KTurtle says:

    It’s pathetic how his supporters are always trying to photoshop him into a strong, handsome, powerful leader when in reality he’s a fat, ugly boob constantly whining & pouting with his arms crossed like a petulant 2-year-old [see photo above].

    • Darla says:

      I know right? I was walking through the mall, I guess Christmas time? And at one of the kiosks there was a tshirt of trump, and he was superman. Abs, pecs, and all. I actually stopped to stare at it. It was the first I knew about this fetish. They are such pathetic creatures.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        yeah, they did it with Rocky, too. It’s bizarre and kind of creepy.

        and if you ever see a pic of the Mighty O without his shirt, he don’t need no photoshop. Dude’s buff!

    • Nic919 says:

      I find it so bizarre. There is one cartoonist in particular that draws Dump like that and it’s such cognitive dissonance.

  8. Darla says:

    My best friend told me this weekend that we have no proof this is real, and reminded me that she’s been telling me that since we were kids. Which, she actually has. Predating The Matrix. I was always worried about dying and she was always worried that “none of this is real”.

    I never thought I would find that idea comforting, but now I do.

    • Esmom says:

      That’s so interesting. When my younger son was really little, he used to cry sometimes before bed about feeling like “someone was controlling us all, like we’re in a game.” I could never quite understand where he got that idea, as he was a toddler and had not yet been subjected to media and other influences.

      • Ersatz says:

        It might be depersonalization or derealization and it’s a brain response to anxiety usually.

  9. Lightpurple says:

    I’m surprised the studio hasn’t filed a cease and desist with Twitter to pull that for copyright infringement. His edits also remain most of the people of color from the original and stuck in lots of right wing white nationalists like Charlie Kirk.

  10. Sayrah says:

    I couldn’t believe it when my husband showed the video to me. I just don’t know what more to say other than this is idiocracy or the bizarro world and hopefully November brings change.

  11. Rapunzel says:

    Trump is such a bad President that people have to photoshop him into a fictional movie to make him look and sound Presidential. And he’s so dumb he does not realize how bad this makes him look, and gleefully retweets it. And his followers are so dumb, they leave comments like, “Best President ever” even though the video is literally not him and has nothing to do with anything he’s done as President .

    This is the US right now, folks.

  12. Jerusha says:

    WYWS is a great movie! Bill Pullman’s son, Lewis, is excellent in Bad Times at the El Royale, if you want to check him out.

    As for drumpf, looking forward to the day I 💃🏻 on his ⚰️.

  13. molly says:

    He’s tweeted the video three times already. God, doesn’t he have real work he should be doing?

    • Lara says:

      This piece of shit had his lawyers argue before the Supreme Court that allowing Congress and DA’s to execute their subpoenas for the fucker’s tax records- allowing ANY grand jury subpoenas to be served upon a sitting president- would irreparably distract the President from performing the essential duties of the executive office. Attorneys even had the gall to invoke the motherfucking Constitution.

      The justices are professional, but I wanted to scream WHAT ESSENTIAL DUTIES? Tweeting, golfing, and getting spray tans?

  14. Meredith says:

    Bill Pullman was hilarious in Mr. Wrong. The movie is awful but I would still watch it just to see his scenes.

  15. Veronica S. says:

    LOL. He’s such a f*cking loser. It blows my mind that people actually think this is the height of male power and authority.

    • holly hobby says:

      That the magats hold him up as what a man should be makes me cry. Sorry he is not John Wayne by a stretch.

  16. bettyrose says:

    Bill Pullman is great, but has Trump seen the movie? The president isn’t the hero. Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum are the heroes of the movie, and they’re, um, Black and Jewish?

  17. Sean says:

    To paraphrase another famous Bill Pullman character, “He’s gone to plaid!”

    Also, I’m surprised the SUPER-DUPER MISSILE hasn’t been mentioned yet. It’s going to go zoom zoom! And make sounds like pew pew!

    • Lady D says:

      Couldn’t f’n believe those words came out of the mouth of the leader of the free world. Super duper. I swear I felt like I was in a Yosemite Sam or Coyote/Road Runner cartoon reading that.

  18. Jessica L Massie says:

    Wow. As an American who has spent half her life abroad, in Rwanda, Tanzania and Guinea, and has seen this type of propaganda over and over (and over), I’m grieving for the place I thought I came from. I see this, and it breaks my heart.

  19. Valerie says:

    They should sue, tbh.

  20. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    He’s a super duper missile.

  21. booboocita says:

    I read an interview with Bill Pullman a few years ago. He was wonderfully funny and very humble. He was asked why he wasn’t in more blockbusters like Independence Day, and he said that work on big films like ID would take him away from his wife and children, and he wasn’t willing to miss his kids as they grew up. Such a lovely man.

  22. AppleAnna says:

    Just imagine someone like Angela Merkel or Justin Trudeau tweeting something like that. It’s so bizarre. Other leaders are talking to their countries about quarantine and infection rates and Trump sits on his fat ass and tweets clips where he sees himself as the hero. I just feel so sorry for all the americans who despise him.

  23. Jeannette says:

    Well that just happened.
