In the late 1800’s author Ingersoll Lockwood wrote a series of children’s novels whose key character was named “Baron Trump.” And awaaayyyyy we go into Donald-Trump-is-a-time-traveler theories, which is very goofy, but let us glimpse at some of the spooky parallels 1st. Snopes.com lists the contents of the publications and the subsequent similarities as “typically correct”.
- The publications character, Baron Trump, begins his journey in Russia heading to America with a character guiding his way named “Don”. (What the…?)
- The illustration of Baron does bear a resemblance to today’s Barron Trump.
- Lockwood wrote one more e book called “1900 or, The Last President” in which a strongly opposed New York politician surprisingly receives elected president and folks protest in a “state of uproar”. (Okay, massive offer)
- That politician lived in a resort on New York’s 5th Avenue. (Hmm, Trump Tower is on 5th Avenue.)
- He also selected someone for his cupboard named “Lafe…Pence“. (Appear on!)
Baron Trump’s Marvelous Underground Journey, and 1900: or, The Final President, are without a doubt authentic guides by writer Ingersoll Lockwood. (We have not been ready to uncover any proof proving that Donald Trump and his spouse and children have entry to a time equipment, nonetheless).
Both equally of the publications are archived by the Library of Congress and can be read through in full on Archive.org. Baron Trump’s Great Underground Journey was revealed in 1893 and 1900: or, The Very last President came out a few several years later on. According to the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction, Lockwood penned at least one particular other e book about the Baron Trump character, The Travels and Adventures of Tiny Baron Trump and His Great Pet Bulgar, which was published in 1890.
Okay, perhaps I can get into the creepiness of a 130 yr-old e book series prophetically contacting out some items in our contemporary working day. Which is great and enjoyment and gives one the tingles, but time traveler Trump? No way.
If Trump experienced the skill to time vacation do you assume he’d pick out this study course for himself? Utter disgrace? I would think he’d go back again to 2015 and start off in excess of. From that level to now he could have securely criticized the govt, received another divorce, acquired one more spouse, cheated at golfing without having people today caring that he was not performing, attended things publicly with celebs, traveled devoid of protests, lived in New York, hosted Tv set shows–you know, all the Trumpy things. What complete maniac would trade that billionaire way of life for this President Trump lifetime? Oh. Wait. Possibly he is a time traveler.
