When a bunch of bedraggled and unkempt hippie protestors in the 1960s paraded signs near Governor Reagan reading “Make love, not war,” Reagan responded with his usual biting wit: “Doesn’t look like they’re capable of either.”
Behold the current equivalent of dissolute youth—you could hardly come up with a deliberate parody this good if you tried:

I’d be happy to provide a one-way ticket for this person to relocate to a socialist utopia like Venezuela.
Chaser: On another occasion, when Reagan, driving by hippies holding signs saying “We are the future,” scribbled out a reply on a piece of paper and held it up to his limo window: “I’ll sell my bonds.”
He also liked to joke, “I had a nightmare last night. I dreamed I owned a laundromat in Berkeley.” Today he’d joke, “I had a nightmare last night. I dreamed I was a TSA airport screener and this woman broke our metal detection machines and I had to hand-search her.”
