Ken Jeong mocks Donald Trump for outsourced products
The Democratic National Convention was a star-studded affair on Monday night, with Sarah Silverman, Demi Lovato, and Paul Simon among the speakers who tried to rally the party in support of Hillary Clinton. The full-court press was also helped by Ken Jeong, of The Hangover and Dr. Ken fame, who along with Funny or Die and former Barack Obama cabinet member Austan Goolsbee, mocked Republican nominee Donald Trump for his claims of keeping America first in the manufacturing industry.
“Remember we used to have ‘Made in the U.S.A.’?” Trump is shown saying in a stump speech back in March. “When was the last time you’ve seen it?”
And while Jeong is thrilled by those words, the patient Goolsbee explains that many of Trump’s products are made elsewhere — including Mexico.
“Donald Trump says he will bring back jobs to America, when he himself made millions outsourcing his own Donald Trump stuff to be made everywhere else?” a crestfallen Jeong asks.
Confronted with this fact during an actual interview with ABC News in May, Trump defended the contradiction. “But they don’t make a lot of these products. They don’t even make them here anymore. … They don’t even make this stuff here,” he said.
