[Warning: Spoilers ahead from Wednesday’s episode of South Park, “Where My Country Gone?”]
South Park pulled no punches Wednesday night, making it clear how the show feels about GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.
In an episode that also took a few shots at an awful-driving Caitlyn Jenner character, the main focus of “Where My Country Gone?” was a doomed future under a Trump presidency.
In the second episode of the 19th season, Mr. Garrison is fed up with all the illegal immigrants in America and he wants to build a wall — one of Trump’s main talking points. Only the immigrants Garrison is referring to are from Canada.
Garrison gathers a following when he begins to give speeches about his animosity over illegal immigrants, and he asserts there is only one way to handle the problem: “F— them all the death.”
Through a series of events with Stan, Kyle, Kenny, Cartman and Butters, it is learned that Canadians are coming to America to escape their president, who has ruined their country. A speech given by one of the immigrants perfectly mirrors the situation with the current Trump presidential bid.
“There were several candidates during the Canadian elections. One of them was this brash asshole who just spoke his mind. He didn’t really offer any solutions, he just said outrageous things. We thought it was funny. Nobody really thought he’d ever be president. It was a joke! But we just let the joke go on for too long. He kept gaining momentum, and by the time we were ready to say, ‘OK, let’s get serious now, who should really be president?’ he was already being sworn into office. We weren’t paying attention! We weren’t paying attention!”
Garrison eventually ends up in Canada and finds a postapocalyptic wasteland, where the one citizen he sees commits suicide by jumping off a building.
The only one who is happy is the president — depicted as Trump, but not named — who tells everyone to “suck my balls” and is seen dancing around his office to the ‘80s pop hit, “Safety Dance.”
The Trump-like president and Garrison get into a physical fight because the president is mad someone got over his wall. Garrison wins, and, well, graphically carries out his solution for illegal immigration.
Thrilled to have their country back, and the president dead, Canadians begin to move back home.
As for Jenner, she is shown throughout the episode with misshapen eyes and a tongue that protrudes from her mouth. The character keeps running people over in her car — a reference to a deadly crash the actual Jenner was involved in that occurred in February on the Pacific Coast Highway.
Before driving, a cartoon Jenner always says, “Buckle up, buckaroo.”
In the end, a victorious Garrison decides he is going to run for president of the U.S. and chooses Jenner as his running mate.
A spokeswoman for the Trump campaign told The Hollywood Reporter there is “no response” to the episode.
