On Wednesday, a gunman shot five people at a congressional baseball practice. That night, even late night host/Trump critic Stephen Colbert praised the president for his poised response and call for unity.
On Thursday’s President Show, Anthony Atamanuik‘s version of Donald Trump said, well, pretty much the same thing.
“First let me say I was shocked and appalled by the news of yesterday’s shooting,” Atamanuik’s Trump said. “Today, we must come together and abandon hateful rhetoric on all sides, from the marauding Mexican rapists to the New Jersey Muslims still celebrating 9/11.”
But when asked to speak calming words to the American people, he shouted, “Run for your lives, we’re under siege! There’s an army of liberal zealots operating under direct orders from Shakespeare and Kathy Griffin.”
“That’s what they said on Fox News, so that’s what I’m going with.” Poised, indeed.
