Triumph The Insult Comic Dog’s Focus Group Of Trump Supporters Is Hilarious… And Terrifying

Published

on

A piss-poor response to the pandemic, a sinking economy, a country literally on fire, not to mention all the sexism and racism and allegations. And yet, there are still many people, millions of them, who will vote for Donald Trump this Election Day. Our nation’s greatest political mind, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, set out to investigate why.

During Tuesday’s episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Triumph, performed by Robert Smigel, hosted a focus group with Trump supporters. “One wonders if anything the president says or does could cost him their ‘herd mentality.’ So we brought these actual Trump supporters to this actual focus group research center, where this actual moderator showed them a series of actual fake Trump campaign ads,” he said.

Triumph, who spends much of the video above behind glass, cedes the spotlight to the seemingly real but obviously fake ads with the voice of the president provided by Our Cartoon President star Jeff Bergman. The focus group participants are pro-electrified monuments (“The second they touch them, boom, whoosh”) and pro-“best of three election” plan, and while they did have hesitations about replacing adults in the workplace with child labor, they were fine with it as long as it’s 12 year olds at the factory, not five year olds. There’s also a whole thing about “putting a person in the microwave” to cure COVID-19, and the group’s defense of Trump, that needs to be heard to be believed.

“The people have spoken, occasionally in coherent sentences,” Triumph said at the end of the segment after sipping a martini and guzzling a bottle of bleach. “And in the end, no matter whom you support, we can all agree, America is blessed with an informed electorate, and the future is brighter than ever… for me to poop on.” Amen.

The post comes nearly three weeks after the teen’s brother Collin Gosselin accused their father of physical abuse, prompting an investigation.

According to People, the County of Berks, Pennsylvania Child and Youth Services notified their mom, Kate Gosselin, of the alleged incident between Jon and the 16-year-old that took place earlier this month.

“You do not punch and kick your children. You do not kick a child. I don’t want to hear any excuses from anyone, not from his father, not from local law enforcement, not from court personnel whose job is supposedly to ensure the best interests of my children,” she told the outlet. “There is a child abuse law, PA 23, section 8i states that doing any of the following, regardless of whether it causes injury, is child abuse, and first on that list is kicking. Period.” She later called her ex-husband a “violent and abusive person.”

Collin reportedly said his dad “beat” him in a now-deleted Instagram post. “My dad is a liar,” it allegedly read. “Yesterday he beat me up and thought nothing of it, he punched me in the face and gave me a swollen nose and I started bleeding. He then continued to kick me in the ribs after I was on the floor. He is a liar.”

Since then, however, Mady and Collin’s sister Hannah has spoken out in support of Jon. “My dad loves us,” Hannah told the Daily Mail on September 16, adding that he’s a “very supportive dad.”

Jon’s rep previously told In Touch Jon is a loving father who has never abused his son,” noting that “legal action will be taken” following Kate’s “malicious” and “libelous statements.”

Prior to the accusations, a source told In Touch exclusively things were “going pretty well” between the father-son duo. “He was happy with Jon’s girlfriend Colleen [Conrad] and seemed well-adjusted to living life with his dad, sister Hannah and Colleen’s kids.”

No charges have been filed.

The film follows David (Soto) and Creeper (LaBeouf), “tax collectors” for the Los Angeles crime lord Wizard who collect his cut of the profits from local gangs’ illicit dealings. When Wizard’s old rival returns to the City of Angels, the business is upended and David is put in a fight to protect his family.
