Carrie Fisher gave the perfect answer for this current moment in history. RIP

Carrie Fisher was a bad ass. From playing the role of Princess Leia in Star Wars, to her brave openness about having bipolar disorder, to her incredible wit, the geek and feminist icon will be sorely missed. The famous actress and writer died at the age of 60 on Tuesday from a heart attack. But, according to her, she wants to be remembered as having “drowned in moonlight, strangled by her own bra.”

She did so many amazing things, which so many places have already written about in the hours since her passing. But we caught this awesome moment on Twitter that hasn’t been widely reported yet. Hint: This will appeal to the lefties in our audience.

At a recent event, an audience member asked Fisher if she had the Force, like her character Leia does, what she would do with it?

She answered, “I would make Trump go away.”

Video of that interaction can be seen here.

RIP Carrie Fisher. The world will be a hell of a lot darker and less funny without you.
