Trump Holds Syria Press Conference Next To Darth Vader, And Twitter Can’t Decide Whether To Laugh Or Cry!

One’s an angry tyrant who let his petty jealousies and lack of understanding fuel an insatiable lust for power. The other carries a red laser sword.

Donald Trump was asked some important questions about Syria on Thursday, and it seems he either didn’t fully understand the topic or was unwilling to give any kind of firm answer until weighing how it could benefit him.

But that’s not unusual, sadly. What did make this instance of Trump’s Presidential incompetence noteworthy was that he was juxtaposed with Darth Vader the entire press conference!

Apparently the new Blu-Ray of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was playing in the cabin, and no one bothered to turn it off as Trump stuck his head around the corner for an impromptu presser.

The resulting images gave viewers a sardonic silver lining to another gross POTUS moment:

Great, Trump is watching Rogue One. We really don’t need him getting any ideas. pic.twitter.com/gBoVP9sKrB

Some of the most fateful remarks Trump has made as president, and they’ll always be juxtaposed with this scene from Rogue One https://t.co/aFHVb4eKvu

Unbeknownst to Trump, Bannon put on his favorite home movie of he and Trump on AF1. #RogueOne #airforceone #rogueairforceone pic.twitter.com/ITXsBdpHgW

Donald Trump has changed his views on Assad.
Oh, he also just saw "Rogue One" & now suspects Darth Vader’s a bad guy, too.

So were they watching Rogue One or is that a security camera in Trump’s office? pic.twitter.com/SrRgnwEgRk

Off topic from Death Star plans — does anyone else think it would be great if the "something" that Trump thinks "should happen" re:Syria started with the U.S. setting an example for the rest of the world by NOT trying desperately to turn away refugees?
