Scene: It’s Labor Day weekend of 2032, 10 years in the future. Jessie, an 8th-grader excited about her government project, stops by her grandparents’ house.
Jessie (big smile, kisses him on the cheek): Hi, Grandpa! I’m doing a project about the 2024 presidential election. Would you help me?
Grandpa: Sure, honey. What would you like to know?
Jessie: OK, first, who did you vote for in 2024?
Grandpa (smiling broadly): Donald J. Trump! I voted for him three times! Best president in the history of America!
Jessie (crestfallen): But Grandpa, he was a liar!
Grandpa (scoffing): Who told you that! What are they teaching you in that school?!
