Since Donald Trump was elected as the 45th President of the United States of America, late night comedy has had a field day. Regardless of whether you agree with his or the outgoing administration’s policies, just the familiarity Trump has with Hollywood and show business was enough to put a target on his back for shows like Saturday Night Live and The Daily Show.
In the latest edition, published to YouTube just a week before Trump was sworn in, takes jabs at Trump’s Twitter usage, the repealing of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and a ridiculous reference to “Dr. T and the Women” a movie starring Richard Gere and Helen Hunt.
“Has anyone ever done [the State of the Union] over Twitter, using only emojis?” Trump asks as a frustrated Obama tries to explain the importance of the annual speech. Coming a little too close to home, the Trump has been using the @POTUS Twitter account to issue press releases like “I will be making my Supreme Court pick on Thursday of next week. Thank you! -DJT” The State of the Union doesn’t seem that far off.
