President Trump today put internal party squabbling aside for a moment and took to Twitter to give mad props to his political rival Mitt Romney for his recent purchase of a rare television prop used in the classic 80’s sitcom ‘Family Ties’.
The chair, a 1984 mid-century Knoll office/desk roller, was featured in numerous episodes where main character Alex P Keaton (APK), played by Michael J Fox, would sit in and wheel himself around the room as he studied to master the art of capitalism.
Both Trump and Romney have fond memories of the show, and of Fox’s portrayal of the fictional APK’s prowess as an up and coming young Republican.
Members of MAGA Nation and the House Freedom Caucus are urging Mr. Romney to loan the chair to President Trump in the hopes that even a minuscule amount of GOP principles, even if fictional, and even if from the era of trickle-down economics, would seep through from the chair to the President’s brain.
As of the writing of this article, the chair is being housed in a secret underground bunker somewhere on the outskirts of Salt Lake City, UT next to the factory where my buffalo leather man-purse was manufactured.
