Yet Another YT Spoof Which Turned Out to be Eerily Prophetic in 2020

I am sure more that more than a few of you have seen the 2006 movie ‘Idiocracy‘. In fact, when Trump was elected in 2016, more than a few ‘blue checks’ on Twitter pointed out the functional similarity between the character of President Camacho from that movie and Trump. Anyway, the actor who played that character (Terry Crews) did a few more YouTube spoof clips. One of them, from about a year and half ago, is proving to be scarily (in unintentionally) accurate.

In this clip, the character of President Camacho promises to end poverty and inequality in USA by printing money and giving a million dollars to each person- since (paraphrasing it) “people don’t need jobs, they need money”. His plan involves making the federal reserve print money and give it directly to people rather than pass it through banks or businesses. While both LIEbrals and CONservatives might find this idea horrifying, it makes total sense (Modern Monetary Theory) and might be the only way to save the economy in aftermath of shutdown due to COVID-19.
