Star-studded and “brilliant,” according to The New York Times, the story of Joe Biden’s “noble sacrifice” is already getting rave reviews.

Mr. Biden is the unfortunate tragic hero, sacrificed when Democrats surge into impeachment conflict with Mr. Trump.

An “emotional high” shows Biden (Robert DeNiro) and Ms. Pelosi (Kim Kardashian) in a Bide-A-While Motel where Mr. Biden is informed he can no longer run for president, and must be thrown under the bus.

The scene turns a little steamy.

Mr. Biden responds: “I feel a hair-sniffing need coming on.”

Mr. Trump is shown only via flashes of orange hair and fingers in a rolodex as he surveys world leaders for assistance in the 2020 presidential election.

Heavily dramatic here is the response from President Rouhani of Iran, performed by Tucker Carlson in white beard and turban.

“We can help you with his interest in our secretaries at the JCPOA, but only with sanctions relief! Plus we have more drone designs for the Houthis—if necessary!”

Boris Johnson has a prominent role as Leonid Smokaluv, a fired Ukraine prosecutor fired under orders from Mr. Biden.

Having expressed a need to look into an alternative career soon, Mr. Johnson sees his role in "Bus" as “The righteous wronged, which I am thoroughly familiar with.”

Mr. Elon Musk steps into the part of Biden Junior, telling an executive of the gas company, Burisma Holdings, that his salary should be $50,000 a week, not just per month.

The tragedy deepens with Mr. Biden on a subway platform and what looks like a vaping tool, ready to throw himself under a train instead of a bus.

“Do you know what a toilet looks like before it's flushed?”

Mr. DeNiro was never more forceful in delivering this line to passers-by in the subway. He adds: “That’s where my reputation is at this point.”

Ms. Kardashian springs forward from the shadows to take his elbow, as he continues with, ”Look, all I did was what he did, right? Nobody complained before. So why now?”

But the “scene stealer par excellence,” according to The Times, is the sensational Greta Thunberg, recruited to play a new Attorney General for the United States.

The story climaxes with Ms. Thunberg in the Halls of Congress, small but firm finger pointing to the exits.

“Saving the climate begins with ending This Swamp,” she says. “Obey--or get out!”

Mr. Trudeau will offer praise in a review this weekend.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
