Popular Jedi Ben ‘Obi-Wan’ Kenobi has revealed that he felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices cried out in terror, at precisely the time Donald Trump secured the Republican presidential nomination.
“Well, it was just a normal day up to that point,” explained Mr Kenobi.
“I was on the Millennium Falcon, trying to explain to Han Solo that a parsec was a unit of distance, not a unit of time, when all of a sudden I felt the disturbance in the Force.”
Mr Kenobi went on to explain that it was one of the most powerful disturbances that he’d experienced.
“It wasn’t quite as great a disturbance as the one I experienced when an entire planet was destroyed but it certainly wasn’t far off.”
Theoretical physicists have used hard sums and complicated equations to prove that paradoxically, although Mr Kenobi experienced the disturbance a long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, it also happened at exactly the same time that Donald Trump secured the Republican nomination.
Mr Kenobi was profoundly sympathetic to those affected.
He continued, “I can only feel great sadness for the creatures at the root of the disturbance, it as if their entire planet and way of life was under terrible threat.
“It’s either that or George Lucas is making another prequel.”
