In Bond fandom, there’s usually a wide array of opinions concerning each and every film in the franchise. For every Bond fan who loves Goldfinger, you can probably find another Bond fan who thinks that film is overrated and prefers On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. One fan may consider The Living Daylights to be his or her favorite film while another prefers Octopussy or Live and Let Die. The point is that everybody is different and as Bond fans we each have our own personal subjective reasons for preferring one film over another. Different elements of each film resonate with us for different reasons. The one person who may have a totally unique and let’s say (oh to hell with being polite!) delusional take on all the films would have to be Presidential Candidate and all around small handed buffoon Donald Trump. If one stops to think of it, Trump may have made an exemplary target for Ian Fleming. When one considers the fact that Fleming drew his inspiration for Auric Goldfinger from Hungarian architect Erno Goldfinger, it’s not that much of a leap to suggest that Trump would perhaps be a Bond villain himself if Fleming were alive and still writing Bond books.
On Thursday August 18th, a rather amusing hashtag started trending on twitter: #TrumpExplainsMoviePlots. Seeing this as the perfect opportunity to inject some Bond humor into the mix of things, I decided to take full advantage of the situation. The following suggests how Trump would react to each of the official Eon Bond films in the James Bond franchise. If you have better ones, feel free to add them in the comments section below.
