‘South Park’ Will of Course Tackle Donald Trump in ‘Where My Country Gone?’
South Park managed to miss out on so much ripe material over the course of 2015, it wasn’t any wonder last week’s premiere split the bill between Caitlyn Jenner, Deflategate and PC culture. Now, our first look at Wednesday’s followup “Where My Country Gone?” tackles the orange-skinned elephant in the room, as the boys explore immigration. Again.
Comedy Central released the first clip from Wednesday’s newest Season 19 installment, as Mr. Garrison voices some typically off-brand rhetoric on immigration, a subject covered in past South Park installment “Goobacks,” among others. And while Donald Trump doesn’t put in an explicit appearance just yet, the “Make America Great Again” sign more than foreshadows a role.
So reads Comedy Central’s official description of “Where My Country Gone?”:
THE BOYS ARE SOUTH OF THE BORDER IN AN ALL-NEW EPISODE PREMIERING WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23
The United States government has decided to let anyone who wants to cross the border in on an all-new “South Park” titled “Where My Country Gone?” on Wednesday, September 23 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central.
The boys are at odds with the increasing number of undocumented immigrants in their classroom. Mr. Garrison wants to build a wall to keep them all out.
As is the case with SNL, it’s tough to predict if South Park’s take on Trump will prove any more outlandish than the real thing, but tune in this Wednesday night on Comedy Central to find out.
