“As the nation slowly crawls back to economic activity, President Donald Trump has borrowed a speech from the film Independence Day to encourage people to take back the night.”

“For the Tweet, President Trump (or, more likely, someone else) has superimposed his head onto Pullman’s body. It’s the same speech, only targeting the coronavirus. “We’re fighting for our right to live, to exist,” thunders the Pullman/Trump image. “We’re going to live on. We’re going to survive. Today, we celebrate our Independence Day!””
