A Israeli comedy show has trolled President Donald Trump in a dummy government message carrying some of the Republican’s most controversial standpoints.
Trump’s use of a Reagan-era campaign trope to ‘Make America Great Again’ has resulted in a flood of sardonic pleas from foreign comics to include their nation in the presumed forthcoming greatness.
Already comedians from the Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Austria have produced politically-infused skits to ‘persuade’ Trump to smile on their nation.
The latest effort from Gav Ha’Uma, an Israeli satire show, takes on the guise of an Israel government message about the “holiest place on earth, where god had sex with Maria.”
With the help of a Trump voice impersonator, the sketch zeroes in on Trump’s exaggerated speaking, his media battles and his fixation with immigration controls.
“Israel is the birthplace of Jesus. Great guy. Total winner,” the narrator states in the video. “They say we crucified him. We didn’t. Those were fake Jews. I swear. Horrible media. Israel is absolutely the best.”
Attempting to appeal to the president’s interest in travel restrictions, the video plays up Israel’s bling and use of walls: “For Muslims we have the Dome of the Rock. You would love it. I mean, come on, it’s gold and it is shaped like a boob. Plus, more Muslims in Jerusalem [means] less Muslims coming to your America.”
“For Jews, we have the Western Wall. Again, you would totally love it. It’s a huge, huge wall. It’s totally sexy, totally powerful. Religious Jews, the most Jewish Jews, they kiss the wall. That’s how much we love walls,” it continues.
Touching upon both nations’ turbulent relationship with Iran, the clip points out how the US and Israel also have a “joint enemy”.
“Iran – stupid people. Funny accent. They call Israel the ‘Little Satan’. They call America the ‘Great Satan’. So when it comes to Satanism, thanks to us, America is great again.”
