The Truth about Goats

Donald Trump ‘no longer funny’


As with a Lib Dem coalition, what started as a humorous electoral stunt now has all the hallmarks of becoming a grim reality.  The prospect of Donald Trump as President has lost its humour, just like a season of ‘Mrs Brown’s Boys’, James Corden gurning to camera or anything you said as a teenager.

Not so much

Not so much

Many Republicans are now expressing the same level of sober regret normally reserved for drunken one-night-stands or a tattoo of your ex-girlfriend.  One GOP member commented:  ‘I thought it was harmless fun; I even had my fingers crossed when I filled out my ballot.  I expected him a bloopers reel not the Whitehouse’.

Political commentators and comedy scriptwriters have likened the character of Trump to the ‘kind of thing’ Sacha Baron Cohen would come up with – but more racist.   Called the ‘Al Murray effect’, it is dawning on the electorate that Trump may actually believe what he says and the literal meaning of his words have a ‘Jim Davidson’ quality.

With regards Leicester City FC dreams can become a reality, but as with all-things-Adam-Sandler, Trump is spiralling out of control.  Whereas Tina Fey gave a verbatim parody of Sarah Palin, ironically quoting Trump sounds like you are plagiarizing ‘Mein Kampf’.  As one voter said:  ‘If there’s a joke, it’s on us’.

Reader Review

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
