South Park famously said our options in presidential elections in this country are between a douche and a turd sandwich.
But check out their take on the first debate in season 20’s third episode, aptly titled, “The Damned,” between a Trump stand-in (Mr. Garrison) and Hillary Clinton:
Before the debate, Hillary’s advisors instruct her to remain cool and to respond to everything Garrison says with, “My opponent is a liar and cannot be trusted.”
It doesn’t work so well when Garrison (caked in orange makeup to poke fun at Trump’s tan) comes out the gate with:
“I will f*** this country up beyond repair. I am a sick, angry, little man. Please, if you care at all about the future of our country, vote for her.” Then adds, “She’s the one who at least has some experience. She’s not as bad as you think, I promise. And unlike me, she’s actually capable of running this country.”
But, ever the politician, all Hillary can do is parrot what her advisors told her to say about how Garrison is a liar and cannot be trusted, even after he says people should vote for Hillary. Her advisors can’t believe it:
It’s funny… but then ultimately sad to watch.
Regardless of whether or not you personally support either candidate, the sentiment echoed here is something we’re seeing across the country right now.
You might not want to hear it depending on how much of a diehard fan of one of these candidates you are, but a lot of American voters feel screwed this election season either way; many feel neither Hillary nor Trump is a solid option, and thus, there is no option.
