Via Newsbusters, what separates “South Park” from lesser satires is that they’re not satisfied with the easy jokes on Trump, as “Saturday Night Live” inevitably will be. This is a bank shot, as you’ll see. The Trump gag is funny enough, but turning it into a riff on Hillary Clinton’s tin ear and self-defeating dependency on programmed messages is next level. Someone at the White House should play this for Obama today. No one would find it funnier than a Democrat who’s actually good at retail politics.
If you don’t watch the show regularly, the bald guy is Mr Garrison, a schoolteacher in South Park who’s become an unlikely national political phenomenon by farting out simplistic populist catchphrases as solutions to problems like immigration. (“F*** ’em all to death.”) He wins the Republican nomination, ends up with lots of orange make-up on his face, and then discovers to his horror that the enjoyable lark of campaigning might actually end with him becoming president, a job he’s obviously unqualified for. That’s really all the background you need for the clips.
