And for Elbereth's sake, if you must give money to someone to do something about it, listen to her and give it to the ACLU's challenge. They're gonna need it.
On the other hand, it could be that the hands behind (and financing) the scene intended on promoting a DINOcrat candidate no Democrat- or anyone else with a mind of their own- in good conscience would want as president.
Its just another Company curveball.
It's like Joe quotes:
...We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality -- judiciously, as you will -- we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do...
Of course, there's a way around that. It involves proaction instead of reaction. I'll leave it up to you to create your own road out of this timeline.
