A lot has been made about Donald Trump’s ego during the presidential race so far…usually by Donald Trump himself.
So when it comes to interviewing Donald Trump, who better to interview Donald Trump than Donald Trump?
“How are you gonna create jobs in this country?” the doppelganger asked.
“I’m just gonna do it,” Trump replied.
“By doing it.”
“You said you’d get Mexico to build a wall on the border. How do you plan to do that?”
“Well, since I’m you, you tell me.”
“How am I going to get Mexico to build a wall? Easy. I’ll challenge them to the biggest game of Jenga ever. I’ll make them set up the board. And then when they finish I’ll say I don’t wanna play anymore.”
Then came his cabinet pics…
“If you win, is your vice president gonna be Gary Busey?”
“Look, I love Gary, he’s fantastic, but more of a Supreme Court justice in my opinion.Vice president’s a very serious job so I’m probably gonna go with somebody else—I would say maybe Kanye West…
“It’s gonna be really classy. It’s gonna be really fantastic. It’s gonna be…YUUUUUUUGE!!!”
Outside of the fact that Jimmy Fallon’s impersonation of Donald Trump is terrible…the sketch wasn’t so bad. And regardless of what you think about Donald Trump, this continues to prove one thing we’ve talked about for a long time here at LouderWithCrowder: cultural relevancy is more influential than political relevancy.
Donald Trump has name recognition. He has zero record, experience or even proposed solutions. But he had an immensely popular reality show, and he knows how to play the media. For better or worse, that’s how people have developed their opinion on him. Both his supporters and detractors. That’s the only record they have. Other candidates should take note. Use what works, discard what doesn’t.
Also, here’s a better Trump sketch.
