If You Reject Trump, Today Give Isaac Asimov A Shoutout

by Shelton Bumgarner

If there is one person who the anti-Trump, it is Isaac Asimov. Given the Trump Administration’s odd attack on the EPA and others the last day or so, I feel if we show solidarity with them is to symbolically embrace Asimov. Asimov was a man who loved logic and he wrote many, many books about any number of different things.

And, really, a perfect name for the resistance to Trump would be Foundation. I have proposed AmeriMaidan, but no one seemed interested in that. But maybe Foundation is a good one. Or, put another way, Hollywood should finally get over itself and make a movie or TV series out of Asimov’s Foundation series.

It is my impression that HBO is working on one, but nothing has come of it to date.

The reason why I mention this is, there is a character in the Foundation universe called the Mule. If you know anything about the Mule, Trump is pretty much the Mule in a metaphorical sense.

Anyway, we need to rally in support of science and Asimov seems like an ideal person to be a mascot for people who reject Trump in all his ignorance.
