John Ginn speculates about what if Donald Trump had been the evil politician in The Dead Zone who used a baby as a human shield at the end of the book. In the book, the footage of the evil politician using a baby as a human shield against a sniper causes him to lose the election. If Trump had been that politician? Let’s cut to John’s speculation:
John Ginn: At the next rally, the very next day: “Folks, you should have seen this baby. I’m holding him up, and he’s all, like, ‘Wah, wah, wah! Don’t use me as a human shield!’ I kid you not. And he looks like this (makes an exaggerated face of a crying baby having a pouty day, like he’s just been told he can’t have candy) This baby, folks, just wah, wah, wah, I wanted to smack him. He was, like, “I don’t want to be used as a human shield! I just want to get old enough to get on welfare my whole life!” Well, anyway, the hell with that baby. Seriously, I’m done talking about that baby. Crooked Hillary, now, there’s your real slime bag there.”
Crowd cheers. The media never mentions the human shield baby ever again. A moderator tries to mention it at the next debate. Trump denies it ever happened. Moderator shows the footage. The crowd boos the moderator.
Me: And Trump still wins.
