Election Year Confusion

I was really confused when I saw this shown before my movie the other day …

I had come into the theater just a few seconds after this trailer had started. I really thought it was a Donald Trump campaign commercial with the patriotic declarations early on, and then the gratuitous violence, a staple of the Trump campaign. By the end of the trailer, I knew it was not a Trump campaign commercial since an old man declares close to the end that he purged to “keep America great.” Anyone who is vaguely familiar with the Trump campaign knows that we have a long way to go to “Make America Great Again.”

Fortunately for the Trump campaign, this movie opens the July 4th weekend, early enough for Trump campaign staffers get some policy ideas from the flick to bring to the Republican National Convention later in July to incorporate into their party’s platform.
