I’m Commander Shepard, and this is my least favourite racist on the Citadel. Continuing his tendency to Tweet absolutely anything, no matter how ridiculous, Donald Trump recently shared the following video with his 7.3 million followers:
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!https://t.co/4uWRyTeEr3— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 4, 2016
Yes, that is Mass Effect music and voice acting throughout the ad, which appropriately ends with a title card reading “TRUMP EFFECT”. I think we’re supposed to understand that Hillary Clinton is one of the Reapers in this analogy? A Reaper… dog? I’m not sure, because really, the ad is hilariously terrible.
Trump didn’t make it of course; he credits another Twitter account, who credits a YouTube account, which redirects to “Commander Trumpard”. It’s entirely possible that whoever made it initially meant it as a troll. Whatever the origins, Trump has seen it and deemed it worthy enough to share/endorse.
And yes, folks at Bioware have definitely seen it too:
I love the idea that Trump may think he's the Illusive Man, who is verifiably the bad guy in the game— Mr. April (@manveerheir) April 4, 2016
Trump is indoctrinated, that makes so much damn sense. THE REAPERS ARE REAL— Mr. April (@manveerheir) April 4, 2016
