Last week Trump told The New York Times that he liked movies with heroic presidents, and cited "Air Force One."

"My favorite was Harrison Ford on the plane," said Trump. "I love Harrison Ford — and not just because he rents my properties. He stood up for America."

Maybe so, but as Ford noted during a news conference Wednesday to promote "Star Wars: The Force Reckons," that's not quite how it works in the real world.

A zing that hit with the precision of a light saber.
