All hail emperor Minaj.
In the world of epic Twitter stories, Oliver Willis has managed to create something that stands above the rest, not only for its creativity and thrilling plot line, but because, in the age of Trump, it totally captures the feeling many American’s have that, at this point, anything is possible.
It also scores points for taking the celebrities and politicians we all know and turning them into the most colorful cast of characters since Arrested Development first aired on Fox back in 2003.
In addition to Dictator-for-life Minaj we have:
Her arch rival Katy Perry
Beyoncé, of course, shows up as Secretary of Defense.
And if Beyoncé is around, Jay-Z can’t be far behind.
Lady Gaga weighs in, but seems to be hedging her bets.
Naturally, Taylor Swift doesn’t fair well under the new regime.
Marco Rubio is around, and of all the characters, Willis plays him closest to reality.
Surprisingly, Trump shows up very little in the thread, and then it’s just to whine.
Willis even gives himself a brief cameo.
But he saves the best role of all for Vice President Mike Pence. Who you (almost) end up rooting for.
It’s an engaging and thoroughly entertaining story with plenty of twist and turns, and we highly recommend reading it start to finish. Twitter users are already clamoring for more.
I hope this Is the Season 1 recap & it's been renewed for S.2— Lori Saldaña (@Lori4SanDiego) May 20, 2017
She may be dictator for life, but you, Oliver, are my King.— Elizabeth Cody (@ElizabethCody2) May 20, 2017
No reply yet from Nicki Minaj on how she feels about the whole thing, which does kind of make you wonder: What is she up to??
