A dozen days into his presidency, I’m still not used to hearing the two words, “President Trump.” It just sounds wrong, as if it were lifted from that scene in “Back To The Future”…
Dr. Emmett Brown: Then tell me, future boy, who’s President of the United States in 1985?
Marty McFly: Ronald Reagan.
Dr. Emmett Brown: Ronald Reagan? The actor? Then who’s vice president? Jerry Lewis? I suppose Jane Wyman is the First Lady!
Marty McFly: Whoa. Wait, Doc!
Dr. Emmett Brown: And Jack Benny is secretary of the treasury.
Marty McFly: Doc, you gotta listen to me.
Dr. Emmett Brown: I’ve had enough practical jokes for one evening. Good night, future boy!
Well, if you don’t believe that, Doc, wait until I tell you about 2017!
