Well, in a new interview for BuzzFeed’s Facebook Watch show “Profile,” Oswalt invoked another disturbing scenario to sum up the Trump White House — and it involved monkeys, PCP and lots and lots of diarrhea.
Oswalt, commenting on what comedians face addressing the Trump era with their gags, joked:
“You could not feel more superfluous in terms of making fun of the president because the Trump administration is an 18-wheeler full of monkeys and PCP that has crashed into a train full of diarrhea, and so there’s diarrhea-covered monkeys on PCP running around and everyone is just watching it like, ‘Oh my god!’ And then you as a comedian walk up and go, ‘Hey, do you want to hear a joke I wrote about this?’ And they’re like, ‘No, I’m good. There’s nine jokes in my head. You can go take a break. This is playing itself out perfectly.’”
