Donald Trump 'Impossible' To Satirise As He's 'Funny Enough On His Own' Says 'South Park' Creators
We all know that South Park doesn't shy away from controversial topics. In fact, some of the things they come up with are so out there that they could probably do with another word. Megasupermassivecontroversial perhaps. Anyway the point is, they're not timid.
So how come they've not ripped apart Donald Trump yet? Yes, they did turn Mr. Garrison into a Trump stand-in. With orange skin, insults, and a real short temper... but what about making a real Trump?
Well, South Park creators have claimed that the Donald Trump administration is too hard to satirise because it's funny enough on its own. Wow. I did not see that one coming.
Speaking to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone said: "It's tricky now because satire has become reality."
"It's really hard to make fun of and in the last season of South Park... we were really trying to make fun of what was going on, but we couldn't keep up and what was actually happening was much funnier than anything we could come up with.
"So we decided to kind of back off and let them do their comedy and we'll do ours."
However, last year the pair claimed that they chose to replace Trump with Mr Garrison for a completely different reason. They said that they "didn't really want to service Trump as a character." Adding: "We were like, f*ck him, we don't want to give him the satisfaction."
Say what you want about Trump, his memes have been fantastic so far.
Since being sworn in, President Trump has signed a number of controversial executive orders and, after he's done the signing, he likes to put on a bit of show, holding up the paper to the cameras and that's just asking for trouble, isn't it?
Here's a typical 'I've just signed this' pose:
Anyway...here's what the internet has done to him:
