Status: Finished  |  Genre: Editorial and Opinion  |  House: The Imaginarium

Written for Imaginarium House, 100 words challenge. The Deadline.

“Mr. Trump. Don’t panic. I’m just an Assassin sent by Hillary. I’m here to make you either end your own life now with honour or take this pill to become more accessible. Should you choose neither of them. I’ll use this remote control to turn this world into pieces, not peace; war filled, not war free; lunacy, not lucidity. You don’t want that, right? I’ll give you ten seconds of deadline to consider and choose. 8,7,6…”

Beep! Beep! Time to wake up. Dammed! It’s the third day in a row. Those politicians can’t even allow people to dream for themselves.

The only nightmare I have is the Assassin push the button! It can be anyone else but Trump. I have learned when one get attacked so much on the media, something is wrong. I think Trump makes USA into solvent again, is that right?

Can a dishonorable person ever die with honour? Not sure about that, Derina, but you made a good little story out of this.

Thank you Joe. There are more to meet the eyes in this short story. I think many people are anti-Trump, but I have learn not to judge things based on the data from the media or from how famous one is. Media are full of lies, slanders or PR (cheering lies), you never know what is right and wrong. It is better to judge things from their status. I think Trump makes USA into solvent again and refuse to listen to what he was told to do, IE: Refusing to be a puppet of bankers or Psychs. There kinds of presidents usually got attacked and assassinated. Three options I offered here for his death are for Hillary's own good, if he is to choose one.
