The Netherlands Welcomes Trump in His Own Words

This video is a brilliant example of satire: across cultures, across linguistic divides, and across political ideologies. I’m seriously impressed with the way the comedy was executed in a way that makes sense to both Dutch audiences and American audiences. The degree of difficulty for something like this is quite high — still, it’s executed quite effectively.

I’ve felt tongue-tied since Election Day: very concerned about the rhetoric coming from Donald Trump, but also quite concerned about the rhetoric coming from those who disagree with him. I guess sometimes it just works best to say it with satire.
