Time-Traveling Hero Elections Gone Wrong

Jun 7, 2023, 8:59 PM

In a shocking and unexpected turn of events, renowned time-traveling hero Marty McFly has allegedly taken a step too far in his latest time-traveling escapade. According to witnesses and chronological scientists, McFly accidentally ventured into an alternate timeline, and his actions may have derailed the course of history by shooting former President Barack Obama.

A source close to McFly disclosed that he was initially attempting to fix a minor glitch in the timestream when his time machine, a modified DeLorean, malfunctioned, and propelled him into an alternate universe. "Marty had the best of intentions, trying to stop a news report about a high school football game from being altered," the anonymous source revealed.

Regrettably for Marty — and President Obama — the DeLorean sent Mr. McFly not just through time but also across dimensions. Observers from this alternate universe recount the stunning moment when the time machine appeared in front of their timeline's White House, with McFly at the wheel.

Eyewitness Timothy Babbington-Frizzle recalled, "There I was, enjoying my evening tea when all of a sudden — ZAPP! The time machine materialized out of nowhere. I thought, 'Blimey, that looks just like the DeLorean from Back to the Future!' I never would have imagined the bloke inside actually was Marty McFly!"

Confused and disoriented, Marty McFly mistook this alternate reality for his own timeline. In a tragic series of events, he became entangled in a scenario that led him to believe he was a hero destined to save his timeline by shooting the president. His lack of awareness about the stark differences in this new universe spelled disaster for its unsuspecting former leader.

Dr. Emmett "Doc" Brown, McFly's closest confidant and founder of the DeLorean Time Travel Initiative, expressed regret and concern over the incident. "Great Scott! I never expected the flux capacitor to malfunction like this. I must find a way to correct the timeline and help Marty!"

As the bizarre story unfolds, political analysts are speculating on the potential consequences for this alternate universe's government. Speculation is rife about a possible time-traveling based cold war or even armed conflicts with countries seeking to exploit this new technology. Nations of this parallel world have called for an emergency assembly of the League of Extraordinary Timelines to discuss the problem.

In the meantime, an international manhunt to apprehend Marty McFly has been initiated. Law enforcement agencies in the alternate universe have been placed on high alert, with agents keeping watch at significant points in history, such as the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the first moon landing.

News of the extraordinary debacle has reached our present-day timeline as well. Filmmaker and Back to the Future visionary, Robert Zemeckis, has expressed interest in adapting this reality-altering misadventure into a fourth installment of the film franchise. However, adding a satirical twist, Zemeckis has suggested a unique title for this addition, "Back to the Future 4: McFly’s Interdimensional Mess-up."

As the world awaits updates on McFly's fate, one can't help but wonder what other unforeseen consequences his interdimensional shenanigans might trigger. Will Marty McFly's story serve as a cautionary tale to all time travelers, or merely a blip in the annals of history? Only time will tell.
