The alleged controversy seems to involve the natural effects of a solar eclipse. The eclipse has passed, yet the candidate continues to distract voters. See below for a summary of the exchange between the candidate and the voters.
“You won’t believe this!” exclaimed the candidate. “The sun is gone!”
Rolling their eyes, the voters commented, “What’s the big deal? The moon is simply…”
“Wrong! And I don’t care about the moon’s position, ” snapped the candidate.
Taking umbrage, the voters retort, “Well, have you considered…”
“I don’t have time. You need to come with me. We are all going to die.”
Appalled, the voters parlayed, “Perhaps we can work together to find a remedy…”
“No!” interrupted the candidate. “I know all about this,” the candidate insisted. “I think I can find the sun. I can use my flashlight. Believe me, I’ve got the best flashlight.”
“Really?” the voters replied, “What kind of flashlight?”
A segment of the voters have reported to be seeing red after staring into the flashlight’s strong beam before realizing they have only been distracted by the candidate.
With the election just days away and many voters having yet to respond, the affect on the campaign remains unclear.
Wednesday, November 2, 2016. This story is a work of fiction, an exercise of artistic expression, and meant for entertainment purposes only. The next solar eclipse isn’t expected until February 26, 2017. I doodled the image using ArtRage. I wrote this story with my tongue in cheek. Silly? Yes. Offended? Laugh it off.
