Grind trees and pour ink over them

When the aliens land and say "Take us to your leader", we say "We don't have leaders any more; all that 'mein Führer' business was getting embarrassing in any language. Instead, we have 'representatives', some of which are called 'legislators'. When they smear ink onto paper it magically creates obligations on people, including the ones who didn't ask to be 'represented' in the first place. Oh, and watch out for drop bears.".

We're going to need some creative uses for all of these idiotic Trump flags. It doesn't seem like it would make good toilet paper, being non-flushable and all.

Maybe stitched-together home made parachutes for Trumpers to take up skydiving?
