1—SINISTER MUSIC FULL
2—OFFICE INT. NIGHT. RAIN POUNDING WINDOWS
3—SEVERAL PERSONS sitting around a large office table as WAITRESS pours drinks and removes place setting
5—CLOSE UP of faces of persons at the table.
BUSHY HAIRED BUSINESSMAN begins to speak slowly as SEVERAL LAWYERS lean forward to take notes. HAUGHTY with serious expression. BUBBA watching WAITRESS leave room.
There is no way you can become president,
HAUGHTY, with your trustworthy ratings.
They’re awful. Absolutely terrible. The worst
I’ve ever seen.
LAWYERS nod heads in unison.
I want to be the first lady president.
BUBBA (staring at waitress)
She certainly has my vote.
Ouch! (Kicked by HAUGHTY)
After eight years of the Democrat president
Americans will vote Republican. They want change.
I’ll be the first lady president. That will be a change.
LAWYERS shake heads in unison.
Americans don’t trust you. They don’t
Wait a minute. I have high ratings…
This is all about me. It’s my turn.
I’m the master of the deal. Here’s why
you’ll lose. It will be a terrible loss.
Awful loss. Worst in American history.
LAWYERS begin to smile
BUBBA and MUPPET. People don’t forget.
LAWYERS nod heads
You claim you two were dead broke
when you left the White House. No
one believes that. Awful lie. Just the worst!
LAWYERS shake heads
We had to start over after he…
(stares at BUBBA)
Your term as New York Senator was
terrible. Worst I’ve ever seen. I didn’t
even vote for you. And I was a Democrat then!
LAWYERS nod heads
But when I was Secretary of State and…
LAWYERS and BUBBA moan
Benghazi and your email, HAUGHTY.
Bad, bad, bad. Dumb, dumb, dumb.
LAWYERS and BUBBA nod heads
Voters don’t care about that. I want to be
the first lady president.
Wake up, HAUGHTY. People don’t like you.
Why do you think SNIPPET is getting so
many young Democrats to vote for him in
the primaries? And he’s a communist!
HAUGHTY (folding her arms)
That old coot. How dare he challenge me!
It’s my turn to be the first lady president.
You’ll never win without my help. You
should read my book “Trump: The Art of the Deal.”
It’s a terrific book! I’m a great businessman,
I have a great company. Just wonderful, wonderful.
LAWYERS slap their hands over their mouths
You can help? How in the world…
I’ll run for president as a Republican,
get the nomination. And you’ll be
LAWYERS look at each other and gasp
I think my hearing aids died. What did he say again?
I’m famous. I’m rich. I’m a TV star.
I’ll grab all the attention and none
of the other candidates will get any
news coverage. The competition will
disappear. It will be great. Just great!
I did like that his show. Especially the
one with… Ouch! (rubbing his leg)
You can’t be serious. Voters want
a qualified candidate. You don’t have
any political experience. You don’t
have any policy ideas. What do you believe in?
LAWYERS nod heads
Oh, HAUGHTY, HAUGHTY. You just
don’t get it. People want America
to be great again. They are tired of
politicians, tired of the bad economy,
afraid of immigrants and terrorism.
they want an outsider. Who’s more
outside than me?
Do you think we could really pull this off?
Now there’s the conspiratorial,
take-no-prisoners HAUGHTY I know
LAWYERS look at each other in disbelief
I like it. I like it a lot. But we can never tell anyone about this.
By the time I win the nomination no one
will believe anything I say. And…and…
HAUGHTY you will be…
I’ll be the first lady U.S. president!
(pumping her fist)
What about me? What about me?
Don’t worry. I know exactly what
to do with you.
LAWYERS drop heads to the table as BUSINESSMAN, HAUGHTY, and BUBBA raises their glasses in a toast.
