Because my character is this right winger, I did this whole bit about how I wished Donald Trump would become president, because he would get elected and turn to Obama and say, “You’re fired!” It’s this terrible joke that I spent a long time leading up to. Now I feel like I can’t do it because it’s kind of hack now. It’s hack even talking about it, like everyone has done it.

It’s not funny anymore. We should just start ignoring this guy to starve him of the attention he is obviously doing this for. It’s running its course. From a guy that likes to watch politics it is fascinating, but he’s becoming less and less of a joke. It’s feeling more and more like the real thing and it’s not quite so funny anymore.
