There’s a new “Donald Trump as a child” video called “Playground Bully” that just hit YouTube, and we think it’s definitely worth a watch. We’ll let you press play and see what you think in a minute, but here are a few quick takeaways that we had:
>>First of all, great acting by that main kid, young Trump. He’s gonna be a star. Or a murderer. Or both. He is obviously a rather bright young man. He doesn’t seem to have any difficulty with the adult language or saying awful things to other children.
>>He also seems to have the lines down cold. Perhaps he is the son of the filmmaker (who has apparently chosen to remain anonymous), and the two rehearsed the lines over and over.
>>The filming must have been tense, right? Because the video gets pretty dark. It’s not exactly funny so much as it is spot-on. Which makes the young Trump’s performance even more impressive.
>>Also, the makeup person did a great job. Just the right amount of orange on Trump Kid.
>>Solid supporting work from Mexican Child, Muslim Child and Disabled Child too.
>>Schoolyard bully is a rather appropriate analogy for Trump. He routinely makes fun of people who don’t have the same platform as him (see: fat-shaming Alicia Machado). He punches down, as they say in the comedy world. He punches up too, but he definitely punches down.
>>The video seems as timely as ever, considering the real Donald Trump’s latest comments. On Saturday he accused (with no apparent proof) Hillary Clinton of cheating on her husband. “I don’t even think she’s loyal to Bill, if you want to know the truth,” he told supporters. He also made fun of Clinton’s health scare on September 11, impersonating her collapsing and saying, “She can’t make it 15 feet to her car.”
In summary, we find this video pretty much on the money.
Except the kid’s hair looks too normal.
Anyway, take a look.
