South Park Hilariously Depicts President Trump Facing First International Crisis
South Park lampooned Donald Trump by using Wednesday’s new episode to test him on how well he can handle a global state of emergency.
After completing his presidential “transition” under the supervision of Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon, Trump substitute Mr. Garrison used his new power to take revenge on PC culture and everyone else he hates back in his hometown. Garrison doesn’t get to gloat for too long though, because he’s called to the Pentagon in order to address a crisis that threatens to destabilize the entire planet.
In the show’s secondary storyline, Denmark is preparing to unleash their anti-internet trolling program upon the world. Troll Trace is meant to strip people of their online anonymity and reveal their complete online histories. This threatens to plunge the world into chaos once people angrily retaliate to those who have wronged them.
While Garrison enjoyed the prospect of having the nuclear football and the drone program under his command, he was less enthused when asked to address the international breakdown Troll Trace would cause. As his military advisers and strategists demand an answer to the crisis, the new president’s response was “why are you asking me?”
To make matters worse, it seems that the Member Berries are trying to goad Vladimir Putin into taking the world back into the Cold War.
