Scientist and hero Sam Beckett has been a lot of things. Black woman, ersatz Steven King character, civil rights crusader, to name a few. But his latest time-heisted host is a doozy. If you think being the albino Sancho Panza to Donald Trump’s Man of LaDouche-a is an easy one, he’s got two words for you. “Oh boy.”
In his latest quantum trip into the past, Dr. Beckett has struggled with his time as the Vice Presidential cotton swab, doing his best to remain inconsequential in the less up to his mission of assuring Trump a loss in 2020.

I think he’s got one of the 1986 Chicago Bears coming up next. Turns out The ‘Superbowl Shuffle’ is really important to who gets to Mars first. It’s complicated.”
Pence has been eerily silent lately, which may indicate that Sam is lost in soliloquy in a convenient broom closet where no one can see him talking to himself.
