Scottish Newspaper Accurately Previews Trump Inauguration As “The Twilight Zone Returns”

A satirical TV listing in a Scottish newspaper went viral for its brilliant preview of Donald Trump’s upcoming inauguration (and presidency) as a The Twilight Zone reboot of sorts. Here’s how reviewer Damien Love framed it in Sunday’s Herald:

After a long absence, The Twilight Zone returns with one of the most ambitious, expensive and controversial productions in broadcast history. Sci-fi writers have dabbled often with alternative history stories – among the most common is the “What If The Nazis Had Won The Second World War” setting – but this huge interactive virtual reality project, which will unfold on TV, in the press, and on Twitter over the next four years, sets out to build an ongoing alternative present. The story begins in a nightmarish version of 2017 in which huge sections of the US electorate have somehow been duped into voting to make Donald Trump president. It sounds far-fetched, and it is, but as it goes on it becomes more and more chillingly plausible. Today’s feature-length opener concentrates on the gaudy inauguration of President Trump, and the stirrings of protest and despair surrounding the ceremony, while pundits speculate gravely on what lies ahead. It’s a flawed piece, but a disturbing glimpse of the horrors we could stumble into, if we’re not careful.

In related news that’s befitting of a bizarro alternative dimension, Donald Trump maligned civil rights icon John Lewis, NATO, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, NBC, and Saturday Night Live over the weekend.
