For a long time, people have wondered if Boris Johnson and Donald Trump could actually be the same person. After all, they both:
- Would say anything to get their own way. Even when it completely contradicts the last thing they said.
- Have ridiculous blonde… well, I suppose you could call it hair?
- Publicly and shamelessly spout the sort of horrifyingly dated prejudices we thought belonged in the last century. Oh wait – no – I actually mean the second to last century, don’t I? Because the millennium happened and all that. And Jesus Christ, how is this still going on?
The conspiracy has been put to bed, anyway, as Johnson and Trump have now been pictured in the same room together. Although the thing about conspiracy theories is that you can’t ‘prove’ them out of existence. Because conspiracy theories aren’t based on truth – they’re based on gut feelings and people having too much time on their hands.
In place of the now discredited theory, several more have sprung into life:
- There was only one of them there, but the CIA deployed some clever trickery with mirrors. What, you don’t think the CIA has the power to do stuff with mirrors? LOL – wake up, sheeple.
- Trump is the version of Johnson from 20 years in the future who travelled back in time to stop Hillary Clinton inventing Terminators. That’s why he’s orange. Time-travel stains you orange. Everyone knows that – keep up!
- Facebook is cloning the Trump/Johnson character so that we can have one in every country. Like they do with Ronald McDonald. Only more ridiculous.
Of course, it’s most likely that they are in fact entirely separate idiots who seem to have somehow simultaneously gained power at the worst possible moment.
Because sometimes, reality is just worse than anything we can imagine.

We need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
