The smallest sliver of a silver lining is that, when the entire Trump family is a distant memory and we've elected The Rock to office, this era is going to get the Oscar bait-movie treatment.
Since people can pretty much only comprehend things in terms of pop culture, Twitter has started casting the inevitable Trump Administration movie. People are weighing in on actors, directors, even whether we're looking at a prestige HBO documentary or more of a Lifetime movie. (If we had to encapsulate this drama-filled period of our lives into 90 minutes, a Lifetime movie does make a certain amount of sense.)
From Rodney Dangerfield to Oliver Stone, here are the best suggestions for the movie that you'll spend $15 in the hopefully not too distant future.
Rodney Dangerfield would be a natural to play Trump in the movie.— Mel Dahl (@DahlMel1) July 12, 2017
Surely in the eventual movie Don Trump Jr will be played by the guy who played Tony Soprano's dickhead screw-up nephew Christopher pic.twitter.com/7tTiFYJMJF— Brute Springclean (@BeauMcCafferty) July 11, 2017
When this is all over, a movie about the Trump presidency will have Mike Pence being played by a Nilla Wafer.— Michael, still here (@Home_Halfway) July 11, 2017
The most amazing thing about this whole story is the HBO movie will begin at the 2013 Miss Universe pageant— James Poniewozik (@poniewozik) July 11, 2017
The real question is will Oliver Stone make the Trump movie?— I Obot (@bjones02) July 12, 2017

When you make the Trump movie, please have Famke Janssen play Natalia Veselnitskaya. Thanks.
It's a damn shame that Philip Seymour Hoffman isn't alive to play Steve Bannon in the eventual movie made about the Trump administration— Daniel (@ManielDerchant) July 10, 2017
The movie made about the Trump admin should be a comedy, think Nixon meets Anchorman.— God (@TheGoodGodAbove) July 11, 2017
Ferrell as Trump, Carrel as Don Jr, Wiig as Ivanka.
HBO movie would be an injustice. This deserves a full miniseries, or at least a Ryan Murphy-led American Crime Story season on FX.— Marco (@permanent_marco) July 11, 2017
Two questions remain. 1) Will we live to see this all on film? and 2) Will you get popcorn or candy?
