South Park reworks election episode after Trump win
South Park‘s election-themed episode, originally titled “The Very First Gentleman,” has been renamed “Oh, Jeez” following Donald Trump’s victory.
Comedy Central will air the episode Wednesday night. A promo for the episode features Randy Marsh, his wife Sharon, and his daughter Shelly sitting around the dinner table. “Well. I don’t know about you guys, but I sure am excited,” Randy says. “America’s going to be great again. Aren’t you excited, gang?”
Shelly retorts, “No, I’m not excited! It sucks, Dad! This country’s going to suck for four years!”
“Oh come on, Shelly,” Randy replies. “We’ve learned that women can be anything. Except for president.”
Here’s the offical description for the episode: “PC Principal tries one more time to make peace between the boys and the girls. Meanwhile Gerald comes face-to-face with the Troll Hunter.”
South Park‘s Twitter account also posted an image from a 2015 episode, in which a Trump-like character was elected president of Canada. The Canadian father of fourth-grader Charlotte says, “Nobody really thought he’d ever be president; it was just a joke. But we let the joke go on for too long.”
The previously released tease for “The Very First Gentleman” depicted PC Principal holding a rally at South Park Elementary after a Hillary Clinton victory; the principal was set to welcome Bill Clinton to speak to the grade-schoolers.
See the promo above. South Park airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on Comedy Central.
