Back in season 3 of Broad City, Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer found themselves face-to-face with Hillary Clinton, the woman many at the time believed would be the next president. Things, obviously, went differently, and Glazer recently told USA Today that they ended up having to rewrite a lot of season 4 in the wake of Donald Trump’s surprise election victory. But although Trump’s presidency takes a psychological toll on the characters this season, the man himself will go unmentioned.

“There’s no airtime for this orange (person),” Glazer told USA Today. “We bleep his name the whole season.”

Instead, the Broad City girls will address the Trump era in their own unique way. One episode from the new season reportedly deals with Ilana’s psychosexual challenges in this new age, connected to the idea that a “witch” is just a woman in touch with her “womanhood.”

“Ilana’s ‘powers’ are decreasing during the current administration because it’s just so hard to (orgasm) when you know so many people are in such danger,” Glazer told USA Today. “So Ilana works through her Trump-related (hang-up) and it’s wild.”

Season 4 of Broad City is set to premiere Aug. 23 on Comedy Central.
