Donald Trump too much for ‘South Park’ writers – The Mercury News
One would think having Donald Trump in the White House would be a gift from God for â€œSouth Parkâ€ creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker.
Not really, they say. Because they canâ€™t keep up with him.
â€œItâ€™s really tricky now, because satire has kind of become reality. So it is really hard to make fun of, and we actually just had the last season of â€˜South Parkâ€™ ended a month and a half ago. We were really trying to make fun of what was going on, but we couldnâ€™t keep up,â€ Parker told â€œ7:30â€ in Australia, according to the New York Daily News.
â€œIt was like what was actually happening was way funnier than anything we could come up with. So we just decided to back off and let them do their comedy and weâ€™ll do ours.â€
I have a good idea which is funnier.
Trump was featured September 2015 episode, called â€œWhere My Country Gone,â€ that tackled illegal immigration and a wall between Canada and the United States. The day after the presidential election, writers scrambled to rewrite that nightâ€™s episode, because it was written under the assumption Hillary Clinton would win.
In the episode, called â€œOh, Jeez,â€ Randy Marsh asks his family during dinnerÂ â€œWell â€¦ I donâ€™t know about you guys, but I sure am excited. Americaâ€™s going to be great again. Arenâ€™t you excited, gang?â€
â€œOh come on, Shelly. Weâ€™ve learned that women can be anything â€” except for President.â€
Stone says Trump has made them less funny, because their predictions are coming true.
â€œPeople say to us all the time you know like â€˜oh, you guys are getting all this good material,â€™ like weâ€™re happy about some of the stuff thatâ€™s happening,â€ he said. â€œBut I donâ€™t know if thatâ€™s true. It doesnâ€™t feel that way.â€
