For those who survived Thanksgiving with conservative parents, racist uncles and aunts, and the all-around political calamity that comes with bringing disparate generations together in close proximity, we give you Push Trump off a Cliff Again. The web-based game is an emotional solution for those lingering thoughts, feelings, and concepts you wish you would have brought up around the dinner table, but didn’t have the gumption or family wherewithal to do so.
Sick of hearing your uncle telling you that Colin Kaepernick, the NFL quarterback fighting for social justice, is un-American? Well, now you can push President Trump off a ledge into a volcano bristling with liquid hot magma. Sick of hearing your father tell you that every poll in America is lying about the president’s popularity and that Trump is just telling America what it needs to hear? Well, now you can make Trump run, jump, and disappear into a New York City manhole. Sick of hearing your aunt tell you that privilege is not a thing because she’s worked her entire life? Well, now you can walk Trump through a majestic forest, and into the waiting mouth of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
As Trump plummets to whatever end he might meet, he can be heard shouting, “ahh,” “bye,” and “duh, who put the lights out.” Glorious indignation.
The game, released earlier this year, was the creation of Justin Hook, a former writer for the animated series Bob’s Burgers on Fox. To date, the game has sent Trump to his mythical fate 9, 948, 692 times and climbing. In a tweet, Hook said, “If you’ve ever felt like pushing Trump off a cliff, then this Zen game I built is for you.” The game’s popularity has also been bolstered by Rosie O’Donnell, who tweeted out support for the game earlier this year. Nonetheless, as you start preparing your arguments for Christmas dinner, let Push Trump off a Cliff Again be that political stress relief that gets you through any contentious holiday season.
