A major plan by extra-terrestrials to take control of the U.S. Government was uncovered today, the details of which were remarkably anticipated by the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
The aliens had planned to surreptitiously replace the President with a pod person, but their scheme was disrupted when the half-formed double of President Trump was discovered in some brush by local D.C. residents.
Suddenly feeling guilty about replacing the President with an unfeeling replica who would acted purely in their own interest, the aliens decided to return to their home planet, until they were persuaded to stay and carry out their plan anyway.
“I mean, you’ve come all this way, so why not?”
The aliens reiterated this meant part of the human race would be sequestered as food for their world, but agreed to continue their mission after being assured the majority would have no problem with it.
“Really, it’s fine.”
