18. Mr. Garrison Wins the Presidential Election (Season 20, Episode 7)

Because Season 20 aired in the fall of 2016, the crew attempted an ongoing commentary about the presidential election by making Mr. Garrison into a Trump-esque rabble-rousing populist. But plans for a satirical storyline about the new “First Gentleman” Bill Clinton changed overnight with the world-shaking upset on November 8th – the night before that episode was supposed to air. Instead, Parker quickly rewrote the script to have the reluctant President-Elect Garrison giving a stunned acceptance speech. The moment ended up being more than just memorable; it reflected the times well, as South Park seemed as baffled as the rest of us about how to make current events funny. NM
