Always on the search for those ever-elusive “so bad it’s great” films.
Forrest Trump seems like such an obvious joke or parallel. I’m sure it’s been brought up before, because the names of both are so “easy” to combine, and with Trump’s record of saying some pretty stupid shit… it feels more appropriate.
Norm MacDonald actually had a pretty poignant take on Donald Trump in politics. I was the type to laugh at Trump and not take him seriously at all. He’s a joke in my opinion, and frankly I’m surprised he’s doing so well in the polls. He’s a freak show. MacDonald compared Trump to Hitler, but not in the way you’d imagine:
“They say humor is the ray of light that illuminates the evil or whatever, but I was reading that in Germany and Hitler times, everybody was making fun of Hitler. Every cartoon was against Hitler, there were comedy troupes doing sketches about Hitler being an idiot with a stupid mustache and what a stupid little idiot he was. So anyway, there goes that theory about the power of comedy. It doesn’t work at all. That’s seriously how I feel about Trump. It sounds very cruel to say about a person, but when the country is responding positively to rough comments — and those are just the ones he’ll say, kind of anti, everything is anti, against, stuff like that — well, all I know is that I’m going to make sure my kid has his Canadian citizenship.”
