So, they made a secret “Art of the Deal” comedy starring Johnny Depp as Trump

posted at 7:21 pm on February 10, 2016 by Allahpundit

To cleanse the palate. Trump fans should consider this a a victory prize of sorts: It was made, quickly and very quietly, months ago in anticipation that Trump would implode at any moment. When his lead in the polls kept holding, they decided to hold the movie’s release back in the expectation that he might actually win a primary. And now here we are.

“The plan was to move really fast because we thought Trump would go away, as least as a presidential candidate,” Mr. Burke said. “When he bizarrely didn’t go away, we had a little more time. But that meant keeping the secret for longer.”

How did they zip everyone’s lips?

“We had a few people sign nondisclosures, but mostly we just begged people not to say anything,” Mr. Burke said…

“Absolutely bananas” is how Mr. Burke described Mr. Depp’s performance. “Because we tend to move so fast, we’re usually just slapping wigs on people,” he said. “But Johnny brought, like, a whole team of professionals to help him get into character. Or at least style his hair.”

The busy-ness of the blogging day has kept me from watching more than a few minutes but Depp as Trump is worth a look purely for the curiosity factor. (Why they wanted to do this as a 50-minute special instead of a more Internet-friendly eight-minute short, I don’t know. Is there enough material here to justify that?) One problem is that Depp’s accent isn’t quite right, which is a common glitch for Trump impersonators. People who do it tend to lapse into a generic New York, or even Jewish New York, accent without worrying too much about getting the voice or the idiosyncracies of his speech patterns (beyond the requisite “yuge,” etc) right. A really spot-on vocal impression of Trump could make even mediocre jokes hysterically funny, I think, but it looks like they played this broadly — get an A-lister who’s game, slap a ridiculous wig on him, and you’ve got your Trump. It’ll get clicks, which I suppose was the point.

The intro music, by the way, is by Kenny Loggins, part of the wider satire of 80s culture here. Which makes sense: Adam McKay, who runs the Funny or Die site, also directed “Anchorman,” another comedy with lots of jokes at the expense of a particular time in modern America.

To complain from a different angle, it’s bizzare that you post this, but nothing on terrorists or immigration.

How about an article discussing how Paul Ryan funded Obama’s global warming inititive when the democrats couldn’t pass that stuff when they had super-majorities in both houses.

From the trailer I saw it actually seemed kind of funny, or at least the impersonation was pretty good and some effort went into it.

The reasons why it won’t do anything are a) as should be pretty obvious by now Trump is largely impervious to ridicule, and b) the fact that an a-lister like Depp would expend so much energy for a silly Web clip makes it look like the left and Hollywood is terrified of Trump.

Being that Depp is known for his far left, anti-American views, it must mean that Depp or others in Hollywood are afraid that Trump can win.

Last decade, Johnny Depp has unerring Reverse Midas Touch. Every movie he got a role in failed spectacularly, and his cute wife finally dumped him. As a result, he’s reduced to filming liberal agitprop.

That Trump accent is so bad Depp sounds like he’s doing “Miracle Max” from the Princess Bride. And the makeup is so overdone he looks like Martin Short in his Jiminy Glick character.

Trump and the Trumpeters will (probably) just ignore this. I shudder to think, however, what kind of holy old heck would break loose, and what endless whining, scolding and complaining would break out if someone made a similar spoof featuring a Hilldebeast impersonator. Of course, I can’t think of a single woman in Hollywierd who would agree to do it, but maybe they could get Clint Eastwood?

In all seriousness, you can’t do interior enforcement without knocking on doors, WITH a warrant. You capture an illegal alien, you deport them immediately without trial. I don’t care how much bleating the left does, these are foreign citizens here illegally.

They need to aggressively pursue and deport visa overstays (40-50% of the illegals here now are of that group).

Ok, I don’t get this. We’re talking about Trump, right? I will proudly admit to living under a rock. I don’t have TV, I watch Netflix and Amazon Prime and spend 90% of my watching time on BBC murder mysteries. And even I know about Trump, it seems like forever. I know about his marriages; I buy groceries and read the front page of Enquirer type rags while waiting in line ’cause they are really funny. I know he owns Atlantic City properties, hotels and casinos and such. I know he used to (maybe still does?) manage beauty pageants. I know about the Apprentice and the whole “You’re Fired!” schtick. Heck, I even know about his spat (spats?) with Rosie O’Donnell.

Anyone who has spent any kind of time at a grocery checkout counter, watches E! or reads similar blogs, knows about Trump.

So what super secret thing do the Democrats have that your average grocery checkout counter goer will care about at this point? You know, your average voter like me, one of those middle of the road types that think both parties suck, and not your die hard political junky that frequent blogs like HotAir or the liberal equivalent?

Because I don’t see it.

You guys might not like the portrayal, but that is the way 55% of the country sees Trump.

I am telling you we nominate this guy…..his womanizing will be front and center. Just like in this video. Not good when we need Evangelicals to come out and vote.

Oh my God! Oh my God! A man who consorts with women, some not his wife.

We’re shocked, shocked I tell you.

Let’s throw the republic out the window and elect some dreb like Huckabee. At least then we can feel morally fulfilled.

How do you feel about not being able to buy alcohol?

Your driver’s license says you were born yesterday. . . .

Got 20 mins in.

I love good satire: even of my guy. While Johnny Depp does a great impression of Trump, this film is just not funny.

But remember that thing about the left going after who they fear most?

Guess that’s Rubio, huh?

When you’re taking flak, you’re over the target. Trump takes flak from all the right people… the media, the establishment, the conservative “gentleman warmongers” and liberals.

This is a fight for the life of our country, and we cannot depend on pure pambies to get the job done any longer. We need RESULTS, not talk. We need to secure our borders and start enforcing our laws. Trump has pledged that and demonstrated RESULTS by not backing down, by getting the media to discuss the Constitutionality of “anchor babies”, by enlisting Jeff Sessions to write his immigration policy, and by hiring Sessions’ key aide of 7 years as his senior policy advisor. He has demonstrated more RESULTS in this election cycle than all the other candidates have in office.

Sometimes you have to resort to ungentlemanly approaches to accomplish specific goals. In our military, we have entire groups dedicated to that idea… snipers, seals, rangers, etc. Trump is ours. We are going to smash the media hold over the message. We are going to destroy the establishment hold over the political process. We are going to undo the destruction of our country.

Mere words, such as insults and name-calling, will not dissuade us. We are energized, and motivated. You can see this in the polls, rally attendance, and in the comments here. You were warned for years, and now our plan is in motion, and reaping fruits far beyond what we’ve already imagined.

Oh. I do believe in Romney’s self-deportation. Kill all federal benefits, block free ER healthcare except for life-and-death or contagious diseases, of course pummel employers knowingly dodging E-Verify, and erect hard labor camps for illegals who commit a felony.

I doubt most of what you mentioned would stop much of the illegals sneaking across the border, especially from the countries south of Mexico in bad conditions. It might deter people who overstay their tourist and student visas.

Forcing E-Verify on big business on America? That doesn’t seem very
conservative..
