Herald Scotland reviewer Damien Love has included the screening of Trump’s inaugaration in his weekly round-up of shows to watch – but it was written with an interesting twist.
Readers around the world are in stitches over the sci-fi listing which describes the show similar to an alternate reality disaster film.
The summary of President Trump: The Inauguration reads: “The story begins in a nightmarish version of 2017 in which huge sections of the US electorate have somehow been duped into voting to make Donald Trump president.”
He then describes it as a “feature-length opener” which concentrates on the “gaudy inauguration of President Trump”.


It paints a picture of a “nightmarish version of 2017,” and says that “huge sections of the US electorate have somehow been duped into voting to make Donald Trump president.”
“It sounds far-fetched, and it is, but as it goes on it becomes more and more chillingly plausible,” it adds.
Love finishes with: “It’s a flawed piece, but a disturbing glimpse of the horrors we could stumble into, if we’re not careful.”
The post has caused a reaction worldwide with social media users claiming it is a “masterpiece” and the “the most brilliant TV listing ever conceived”.
