Ominous music, racist overtones, and a black family fighting over a game of Monopoly -- these 90 seconds of nonsense are the third trailer for an upcoming "documentary" about President Obama called 2016.
The film is based on New York Times bestseller The Roots of Obama's Rage, by
right-wing nutjob conservative author Dinesh D'Souza, whose credibility has been debunked again and again and again. But it's whack-a-mole IRL.
Exhibit A: The conclusion to a widely denounced D'Souza piece published in Forbes in 2010:
[O]ur President is trapped in his father's time machine. Incredibly, the U.S. is being ruled according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950s. This philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of his anticolonialambitions, is now setting the nation's agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son. The son makes it happen, but he candidly admits he is only living out his father's dream. The invisible father provides the inspiration, and the son dutifully gets the job done. America today is governed by a ghost.
No need for exhibits B and C. Whatever your feelings on Obama, he's certainly not hell-bent on downsizing America as a demonstration of his father's anti-colonialist beliefs.
2016 is expected to hit theaters in June.
