Watch: Bad Lip Reading has produced an alternate transcript for Donald Trump’s inauguration and hilariously it…makes a lot of sense

Just when we thought the accidental BBC subtitles were the best thing to come out of last week’s inauguration, a video of President Trump calling President Obama “a funny wiener” comes along to prove us wrong. That’s right, folks: Bad Lip Reading is back, and boy has it outdone itself. 

Gifs: Bad Lip Reading

WATCH THE VIDEO

Okay let’s talk about this painting. It’s called “Signing of the Constitution” by Howard Chandler Christy.

Let’s start with good old George Washington.

He’s staring dramatically into the distance with this heavenly glow thing going on.

William Blount is just looking longingly at Washington, like he’s desperate to confess his love.

Then Gunning Bedford, Jr. is down here on the floor like a weirdo.

George Read looks like he shit his pants and doesn’t know what to do.

Gouverneur Morris looks pissed. Also, it’s important that you know that Gouverneur was his first name, not his title.

William Jackson is obviously just asking for another drink. He can’t be bothered to pay attention to this historic event.

Roger Sherman is giving William Samuel Johnson some serious side-eye. Throwing some shade ‘bout some shit.

And my personal favorite: Ben Franklin looking directly at the camera like he’s Jim from The Office.

Probably because fucking Alexander Hamilton is all up in his personal space.

Women’s History Month is an opportunity to step back and reflect on the patient fortitude of women whose once-relegated role as ‘observers’ has bred generations of brilliant storytellers. Over at Signature, Nathan Gelgud illustrates the influence of twelve indomitable female authors, their books, and the literary links between them.
