Ireland and Germany
Ireland and Germany have taken a dark approach to Donald Trump’s presidency via their mock abusive boyfriend letters.
Comedians, viral video personalities, and even late night hosts have picked up on the trend by reading anti-Trump letters written from the point of view of a friend writing to another friend who has suddenly found themselves in an abusive relationship.
The videos are usually filled with lines like, “C’mon America, Britain doesn’t even want you around if you’re with him and they’re like your best friend” or “While it may seem sweet and protective to you now, trying to wall you in like this is extremely abusive behavior.”
A popular play in Mexico titled “Los Hijos De Trump” or Sons of Trump, illustrates how personally some Mexicans have taken Trump’s remarks (such as referring to all Mexican immigrants as “rapists and drug dealers”).
In the play, wigged actors playing the president call the audience frijoleros or “beaners” and then continue to terrorize them by stealing from the blind, seeking impotence cures, harassing women, and even doing copious amounts of fake cocaine.
