Scene: It’s Labor Day weekend of 2032, 10 years in the future. Jessie, an eighth-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?!
Jessie: No one from school had to tell me that. Literally everyone knows he lied about 2020. His own attorney general said so. There’s never been any credible evidence he won.
