Jimmy Kimmel’s “Trumped sketch is definitely funny and well worth the few minutes it takes to watch. The Washington Post said the following about the sketch, “If you’re still trying to wrap your head around the inexplicable rise of Donald Trump, then Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane might have just given us the most plausible explanation yet.”
I’m not surprised but the authors of the sketch missed the mark because they are likely clouded by their own political leanings. The sketch had great promise until it decided to blame the uprising of Trump on money hungry political consultants funded by million-dollar political contributions in result of the Citizens United Case.
This would have been more accurate if it was called “Carsoned” or “Bushed,” since both campaigns and Super PACs were driven by money-hungry political consultants.
