No topic, or person, is safe from discussion on The Carmichael Show. Even the president of the United States.
The season two finale, titled “President Trump,” tackles the 2016 presidential election head-on as Maxine (Amber Stevens West) and Joe (David Alan Grier) spar over presidential candidate Donald Trump after Joe pledges his support for the — shall we say colorful? — candidate.
As their discussion grows heated, and as Trump’s previous acts come into question, Jerrod (Jerrod Carmichael) steps in to moderate in The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive video from the finale.
“If we’re being honest, we just can’t judge a president by what they did before they got into politics,” he says before launching into a rant that takes aim at former presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush as well as current commander-in-chief Barack Obama.
When star, co-creator and executive producer Carmichael first spoke to THR about the episode last month, he warned no one was off the table. “We kind of address everyone,” he said. “It’s as divisive of a conversation as I think it is in every family. It’s the Thanksgiving conversation you try and avoid, magnified.”
Check out the exclusive video from the season finale above. The Carmichael Show season finale airs Sunday, May 29, at 8 p.m. on NBC.
