The Rape of the Constitution

Dateline 2030:

Following Donald Trump’s rape and murder of the US Constitution in 2024, the former United States experienced a major convulsion. The reformed country — “Trump Nation” — consisted of most of the eastern half of the old US, plus many of the states which had formed the old Midwest and the South. The more liberal West Coast refused to go along and became ‘Pacifica,’ while a handful of defiantly independent New England states such as Maine declared themselves sovereign entities. Trump Nation was a mirror of his original political base, predominantly and unabashedly white, with only hand-picked blacks like Herman Cain encouraged to stay. Non-white black and brown people were driven out of their homes by gun-toting white men brandishing flaming torches, and told to find new addresses in another country. Asians tended to drift away north and west.


Using his customary frightful bullying bluster, Trump forced the Supreme Court and the military to swear allegiance to him, and once he had done that, he said he didn’t need Congress anymore. Hillary Clinton was thrown into jail in Alexandria, VA, while Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen, Roger Stone, George Papadopoulos and Michael Flynn were all pardoned. On July 4th, he declared himself President for Life.


After the Mueller Report was buried, critics such as Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Jerrold Nadler and Elijah Cummings were politically neutered, and with his enemies in jail, Trump began to feel like his old self. His new security force, the Jackals, was headed by Devin Nunes and Stephen Miller. Soon the Jackals eradicated all those government employees deemed not loyal enough to Trump, leaving a lean apparatus perfectly suited to autocracy. A new national flag was created — a modified Confederate flag emblazoned with a large gold ‘T’ — and walls were erected on the borders with Mexico, Canada, Pacifica and those feisty New England states.


George Conway, Kellyanne Conway’s husband, left her and started a marijuana law firm and plantation in Oregon. San Francisco became the new center of global international relations, joining old and establishing new trade, defense, climate change and human rights treaties and agreements, while Trump Nation pursued an ardent, anachronistic  isolationism. Seattle became the new world nexus of computer software, multilingualism and book shops — featuring real books. Pacifica began to look like the “Ecotopia” of the 1975 novel, a sort of haven of democracy and green living. (As well as the common cannabis use and relaxed attitudes on sex imagined in Callenbach’s book.)  Temperatures in Trump Nation are climbing faster than earlier scientific predictions, while Pacifica is stabilizing, with signs of dropping, thanks to earnest green efforts, an abundance of trees and an embrace of science. Maine and the ‘Live Free or Die’ states enjoy robust gains in fishing, due to alliances with Canada as northern Atlantic fish stocks improve, signaling a bigger gain in the ability to feed their own than the baked and fried southern and midwest states. In the traditional cattle-raising and farming states like Kansas, Iowa and Texas, crops wither and livestock die from the heat. Some see the diminution and taint of drinking water as a real concern, but only a few worry about that.

Trump nationalized all the TV and online new organizations, forming one big propaganda machine run by Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Sanders and Steve Bannon. Fox News became the backbone of the new TrumpTV, where the president is featured 24/7. The brains, manpower and passion for an independent free press fled Washington DC and New York City, and formed in Boston, where Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez became the mayor. (Independent newspapers flourish in Pacifica.)

Trump dissolved Congress with a great deal of pomp & circumstance, including a big military parade through downtown Washington DC. His fourth wife, the hot former NRA babe Dana Loesch (below), administered the Trumpian Oath of Office in front of the largest crowd ever assembled to witness a presidential inauguration.


Donald Trump had never been so happy. He was President for Life and was the star of the biggest reality TV show on earth. His children each owned 10% of Trump Nation, and he played golf with the world’s other great leaders: Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-un, Nicolás Maduro, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and Xi Jingping. Trump was fat and happy, and no one could stop him.
