Now (as in December 2020) that the Trump presidency's inching towards
its end after just one term, many might ask how this could have happened
in the first place, as the Trump campaign back in 2015 and 2016 wasn't
exactly free from hitches. And this film gives a rather unorthodox answer
to that ...
It's 2015, and Satan (Eddie Griffin) wants to create chaos on earth
once again, so he and his three most loyal employees Misery (Dawna Lee
Heising), Shame (Robert Amico) and Anger (Justin Chenkarow) confer who
their human catalyst should be, lamenting that the world has long run out
of evil geniuses - and then Shame comes up with Donald Trump (Jeff
Rector), real estate tycoon by the grace of his father, alleged
"businessman" and "dealmaker" and faltering reality TV
show host, whose fortunes have been on the down of late and who needs a
way out of debts - so he has decided to run for President of the USA.
Satan has a good laugh when he first hears this proposal, as have many of
Trump's associates, and even his wife Melania (Melanie Marden). But
eventually, Satan starts to like the suggestion: Sure, Trump is anything
but a genius, but he has a way to create chaos on a big scale and a knack
for wiggling out of things.
Trump's campaign is quick to become a PR nightmare of course, as
Trump's shady dealings come to the surface with great regularity, as do
his date with Russian hookers while in Moscow, his affair with Stormy
Daniels (herself) and the hush money he paid her, his wildly misogynist
statements made during a candid talk with a reporter, among other things,
and his remedy for all of this is making wildly xenophobic statements
targeting Mexicans and Muslims at his campaign rallyes - scandalous in
themselves but speaking to his base. Now Satan loves the chaos Trump
creates even as a candidate, but what he does is hardly enough to win the
election, so Satan calls upon his old friend Putin (Kevin Indio Copeland)
and persuades him to release the Hillary emails, and puts a few other
nefarious plans into action - and wouldn't you know it, suddenly America
has a new president that many thought as a joke ...
Now one thing up front, if you're a Trump supporter, there's no point
in you watching that movie, as even though this film stays remarkably
close to the facts for a satire/comedy in many instances, its handling of
Trump himself is hardly without bias. But if you're more left-leaning or
at least more inclined for political humour, you'll find plenty to laugh
in this blend of political reality and dark fantasy, and while the humour
in this film is often painted in broad strokes, the real Donald Trump of
course is not exactly a master of subtlety either, as many of the wilder
things touched upon in this movie actually did happen. In all, lots of fun
in a party movie way, and probably the perfect choice of film for Joe
Biden's inauguration on January 20th 2021.
