'Sharknado 5' to the environmental rescue with 'Global Swarming'

Environmentalists probably could use a laugh after President Trump's decision to pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord.

"Sharknado" to the rescue!

The SYFY channel hit movie series has announced that the next installment of the campy series – which has strong Western New York ties – is titled "Sharknado 5: Global Swarming" and will air at 8 p.m. Aug. 6 in more than 100 countries.

The film's "official tagline" has a familiar presidential ring: "Make America Bait Again!"

I'm serious.

The release notes the tagline came from a fan-sourced social initiative, with SYFY asking Facebook users "to submit their most creative and outrageous ideas via an interactive bot."

Here's a SYFY synopsis of the film: "The mission gets personal for Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) and his bionic wife, April (Tara Reid), when their young son gets trapped in a traveling 'nado and transported all over the world. From London to Rio, Tokyo, Rome, Amsterdam and beyond, our globetrotting heroes will seek assistance from a highly skilled squad of royals, scholars and Olympians, enlisting famous faces from news, entertainment, and sports in their most epic battle yet."

What about Paris?

The list of celebrity cameos includes Fabio as the Pope, Charo as the Queen of England and Chris Kattan as England's prime minister.

I'm serious.

The list also includes Tony Hawk, Clay Aiken, Olivia Newton-John, Bret Michaels, Margaret Cho, Gilbert Gottfried, Greg Louganis, Jeff Rossen and President Trump.

OK, I'm not serious about President Trump.
