Today is all about “Star Wars”. Some politicians come out as fans and pose with a Baby Yoda character on Twitter.
On the famous “Star Wars Day”, May 4th, fans traditionally celebrate the Star Warrior saga. And also some top politicians: Federal Minister of Justice Marco Buschmann appeared on Twitter with a Baby Yoda figure in his hand.
“Today Yoda and I are taking a look into distant galaxies for ideas on how we can make our home planet more modern, better and freer,” the FDP politician tweeted on Thursday. On the occasion of Star Wars Day, he adds in well-known Yoda idiom: “We still have a lot to learn.”
Federal Minister of Labor Hubertus Heil (SPD) tweeted a futuristic-looking image with the caption “MayThe4thBeWithYou”. The saying is based on the well-known quote from the saga: “May the force be with you”.
The Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder asked for opinions on the platform about the favorite character of the story. The CSU politician wrote that he himself has been a big Star Wars fan since his youth. In a video he shows a Baby Yoda, a well-known character from the “Mandalorian” series: “A particularly cute character,” said Söder. “Though honestly I’ve always been a fan of good old Yoda.”
