It benefits from Andersen’s sharp wit and his decades of experience mocking Trump, dating back to his Spy magazine days, when they regularly referred to Trump as a “short-fingered vulgarian.”One especially disturbing, yet funny, passage has the parody voice of Trump writing, “I am a strong believer in sitting down personally with the people dying to work for me — eye to eye, face-to-face, kick the tires, give them the smell test.And the smell test part I mean literally." He then goes on to explain that winners have an aroma that is “kind of peppermint plus leather plus electrical fire or butane, but nicer, more like air conditioning.” The parody takes the disgusting and offensive and stupid image we have of Trump and expands on it — crossing a line we likely hadn’t ever imagined.Trump was especially easy to mock since he was already such a joke.In one scathing example, Stephen Colbert emerged from his break between shows to offer us a parody of Trump’s campaign announcement.But in the end the book falls short, and that is because it is a parody that lacks irony, a key ingredient in satire.Satire is a specific form of comedy that is meant to call on its audience to think critically, to assess preconceptions, and to champion reason over folly.Baldwin, as Trump, joked that Manafort would need a shiv in prison "because after the stuff I've said about certain ethnic groups, they're really gonna go to town on you in prison."

Speaking of which, what an idiot that Harvey Weinstein is.

Everything is so politically correct, I’m surprised you can even say ' Oriental rugs' anymore." The bit ended with Attorney General Jeff Sessions (Kate Mc Kinnon), Trump, Manafort and Vice President Mike Pence (Beck Bennett) getting in the shower.
Throughout the 2016 presidential election, comedy was one of the key ways that we dealt with the absurdity of the Donald Trump campaign.
