Trump Time Travels With Biff Tannan

On 11.18.18, President Donald Trump confused "Paradise" with "Pleasure," during a tour of the fire-hit California town. 

It did not take long for folks to make the connection with predictive cinema. It truly does appear that the reality star Trump is trying to catch up with the fictional Trump-like character Biff Tannan, from Back to the Future (especially II) movies.

Now, in December 2018, the "typos" continue. Enter "smocking."

"Smockin" is an intentional misspelling of the catchphrase "smoking" uttered by the protagonist in the 1994 comedy film The Mask, which is often associated with a photograph of Jim Carrey's costumed stunt double from the film.

This lead to "smocking" memes. See here

Who knows where all this is going? Certainly, we've been down this Trump-Biff rabbit hole before.

Last spring, a thoughtful essay was written by Anadae Q. Effro. We have to be reminded that a script has already been written, that Biff is Trump, and synchronmysticism is a road map. Even Donnie Darko links it’s time travel to Back To The Future. And the original Blade Runner (1982) happens in 2019. Endgame.

Coming soon...Blade Runner (1982) foresees 2019.

As many know by now, the Back to the Future Part II director predicted Donald Trump as President, in the movie that appeared in 1989.

More telling, in 2015, Bob Gale, the writer of Back to the Future II, admitted that "Biff Tannen Is Based on Donald Trump."  
...in the movie, Biff uses the profits from his 27-story casino (the Trump Plaza Hotel, completed in 1984, is 37 floors, by the way) to help shake up the Republican Party, before eventually assuming political power himself, helping transform Hill Valley, California, into a lawless, dystopian wasteland, where hooliganism reigns, dissent is quashed, and wherein Biff encourages every citizen to call him “America’s greatest living folk hero.”
“Yeah,” says Gale. “That’s what we were thinking about.” Source.

CH2 published "Every Single Donald Trump Film & TV Cameo" on Nov 14, 2015. Note that Michael J. Fox (Marty McFly) appeared in Spin City with Donald J. Trump (a fictional Biff Tannen?).

This "lost tape" was published on November 13, 2010. 
BTTF.com has recently uncovered a copy of the complete video monitor footage from the 'Biff Tannen Museum' scene in Back to the Future™ Part II which Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) watches at the museum's entrance while he's looking for answers about his father's demise. This never-before-seen clip is an extension of the material we briefly see on film, featuring some elaborate glimpses into Biff Tannen's (Tom Wilson) ill-gained rise to fame and power in Hill Valley. The 3½ minute segment was digitized from an old VHS tape which had been saved by a Back to the Future fan with family connections to the film production at the time the sequels were shot in 1989-1990. To date, the following clip is not available on any other commercial collection, including the recently released 25th Anniversary Trilogy Blu-ray Disc and DVD boxed sets.
