Rosie O’Donnell exacted some revenge against Donald Trump by narrating a new video that parodies the Republican presidential nominee’s rise to power. Like Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal and Harry Truman’s Fair Deal before it, Thursday’s Daily Show introduced voters to Trump’s “Very Very Incredible Deal.”
“Earlier tonight, before Donald Trump accepted his party’s nomination, delegates viewed a short film about Trump’s life work and overall fantastic-ness, and realizing that you may have missed this important information, we bring it to you now, just slightly edited for clarity,” Trevor Noah said before introducing the video.
The parody comically mapped the history of Trump, from his birth nine months after the nuclear attacks on Japan and his training at the New York Military Academy – although he didn’t go to Vietnam “due to a sudden tragic diagnosis of heel spurs, a condition so debilitating it spread to his brain” – to his real estate empire and his career in “fake business,” The Apprentice.
The second half of the parody is dedicated to Trump’s presidential run, where the mogul overcame “obstacles along the way: smaller penised rivals, former wedding guests and dishonest media unfairly bent on destroying him for reporting on things he said.” O’Donnell says. The video also featured the infamous clip of Trump badmouthing O’Donnell at a Republican debate, prompting the narrator to lose her cool.
