Comedy Central’s “The President Show” To Poke Fun At President With Trump Impersonator

Splitsider / Twitter

In a press release out yesterday, Comedy Central dropped a preview of their new weekly show, “The President Show.” Featuring comedian Anthony Atamanuik, heralded as the best Trump impersonator around, in the role of President Trump, the release claims it will throw out the rule book, just as our commander in chief is throwing out his predecessor’s rulebook.

New late night show “The President Show” will make fun of Trump by just being honest about who he is.

Is it scary or hilarious that you wouldn’t be surprised if our president said these things? Many comedians and TV producers have expressed how difficult they have found it to make fun of Trump, because his comments and scandals are outlandish beyond their abilities.

Even Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the hilarious duo behind the last twenty seasons of “South Park,” said it’s tough to make fun of Trump .

Parker: “It’s really tricky now, uh, because satire has become reality.”

Parker and Stone, who made Mr. Garrison into a fusion of Trump and Darth Vader — the most villainous villain of all time — claimed to be having a hard time making fun of Trump.

Parker and Stone spent the entire last season of “South Park” writing a character that resembled, acted and said some of the same things Trump did on the campaign trail. If they are throwing their hands up on how to write a Trump-like character going forward because he’s too ridiculous, will the folks behind this new show be able to keep up?

It’s not the first time Comedy Central released a show created to mock a sitting president.

Released in April of 2001, the show had already been cancelled by the time 9/11 occured later that year. Although cancelled for financial reasons, show creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker knew it would have been in poor taste in a post-9/11 world.

Comedy Central made a second attempt to launch a show about George W. Bush, but it seemed to come too little, too late.

Though many found it funny, the show didn’t do well, with many saying it came too late in George W. Bush’s presidency to matter.

However, “The President Show” launches only four months into Trumps presidency, so there may be plenty of years of laughs in store.

Unless he gets impeached, of course.

J.Lo’s Mom Was All Of Our Puerto Rican Mothers Throwing Side-Eye At A-Rod

Over the weekend, Puerto Rican princess Jennifer Lopez was spotted walking with her elegant mom, Guadalupe Rodríguez, and none other than her recent boo, Alex Rodríguez. They were all photographed together several times. Guadalupe, a Puerto Rican grandmother, told an entire story with her facial expressions. We’re an expressive people, us Boricuas.

It is no longer a secret that J.Lo and A-Rod are a couple, as he recently spoke openly about it on “The View.”

There it is, all the proof you need.

Bringing home a new boyfriend or girlfriend in a Latino household is a big deal. Usually, it means things are getting pretty serious. You wouldn’t bring any ol’ person around the woman who gave you life. One, because you absolutely respect your Latino parents. And two, they’ll embarrass you by making rude comments or asking embarrassing questions.

For example, my grandmother has discussed the weight of every person I’ve ever brought home. Friend, mentor, girlfriend — doesn’t matter. “Gordita,” “flaquita,” “caderona,” “nalgona,” “delgadita” – all of it. She always means well, but it never seems to come out that way.

Guadalupe, like many Puerto Rican grandmothers I know, is no stranger to expressing her true feelings. Look at her expressions in the photos below, where I imagined what embarrassing things she was saying based on my own wisdom of Puerto Rican grandma-isms.

Guadalupe: “Are you planning on getting back in shape since you’re not playing sports anymore, or is this it?”

Lopez: “Mom, he’s in great shape!”

Guadalupe: “What was it like dating Madonna, you know we’re about the same age right?”

Lopez: “Mom, I don’t even know what to say right now. You’re embarrassing me.”

Guadalupe: “You love him? Pfft. Haha! How many times have I heard that?”

Lopez: “It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve said it, just that I mean it when I do, ma!”

Guadalupe: “Oh my God, can we go already?”

Lopez: “A-Rod, I’m so sorry. She’s usually well behaved.”

Guadalupe: “Think you and my daughter might have ki– oh wait, after the steroids, can you even have kids?”

Lopez: “Ma, that is so inappropriate… but, like, wait… can you?”

Guadalupe: “You always let her walk on that side of the street? She opens her own doors too? Hm?”

Lopez: “Ma! I don’t need no man to open my doors!”

Guadalupe: “I hope you like Mofongo, we don’t do Mangu in this household. ¿Me escuchas?”

 Lopez: “Of course he can hear you, you’re yelling at him, Mamí.”

Guadalupe: “Now that you’re unemployed what are your future plans?”

 Lopez: “Mom, he’s very successful. He once owned a Mercedes dealership. Right, hun?”

Guadalupe: “Are those the new Derek Jeter shoes? Did you know he has his own line with Nike?”

Lopez: “Mom!”

Guadalupe: “Give you my blessing? I don’t see pigs flying, do you?”

Lopez: “That was actually a good one, I’ll give you that.”
