Over the weekend, a crazy video of a young girl calling Trump “a disgrace to the world” went viral online.
Was the video real?
Where many of us would love to watch this viral video again and again, believing it to be true, but no, it is not. As it happened, someone on Twitter shared this short video with the caption “Who is she”. Shortly afterwards, users began retweeting this tweet more than thousands at a same time.

After people, especially liberals began taking this seriously, it turned out that this is actually a short clip from Comedy Central. “The President Show” is a segment in which Anthony Atamanuik has done an uncanny impression of the POTUS, Donald Trump.

The original video of an episode from ‘The President’s show’ is shared right here below.

As its pretty much obvious now, Atamanuik doesn’t look like Trump from the front really that much, but let’s admit it, for one minute we all danced around in glee totally praising this little girl’s nerve.
From the original video, this three second clip was cropped, and posted without Comedy Central’s logo by a twitter user named “najahta”.
If we observe, many people are still taking it a real deal, despite so many people coming forward and explaining its true source. What’s impressive is the news that the little girl in the video was reported to be expressing her actions in real. According to Atamanuik, the kid was not acting, and she was literally thinking she is speaking to the real Donald Trump.
Why are people falling for this fake video?
All theories aside, can we quickly think of a couple of reasons why this video was considered to be genuine.
Well, let’s recall—pig, fat, dog, slob, disgusting animal. All these insults ringing a bell somewhere in the back of your mind? Yes, you feel it, because these are not staged, and include some of the names our very “real” President Donald Trump has called some of the women in his miserable life. Let take a short walk down the memory lane, remembering some of Trump’s most famous sexist remarks.
When Carly Fiorina, who also happens to be a woman, was running against him for the white house, Trump said something along the lines that who’d want to vote her, especially after looking at her face
From time to time, Trump has made it clear from his words and actions both that women should be punished for choosing abortions. He has very casually, hinted that he would have dated his daughter. This statement was considered a ‘joke’ on his part by the way.
Ever since the breaking news of the “access Hollywood tape” broke lose, more and more people are coming forward to claim they were abused by Trump. A number of women are also pressing assault charges that date back to 80’s and 90’s. But of course, all of these accusations are strongly denied by the president and his spokes team.
In a footage that is taken from a 1993 interview, Trump was asked to comment on his “womanizer” image, to which he acutely replied, “I don’t enjoy that image. Yes I have that image. I think women are beautiful – I think certain women are more beautiful than others, to be perfectly honest – and it’s fortunate I don’t have to run for political office.”
During a Stern interview, Trump said a foul lot of things about women that were linked to him and by now, everyone knows them by heart. But do you have any idea that in May 2000, the business mogul had ranked all the women he wanted to sleep with then. To your disgust, this list also includes the late Princess Diana. The list was stated as shown below
- Melania Knauss
- Ivana Trump
- Princess Diana
- Michelle Pfeiffer
- Cameron Diaz
- Julia Roberts
- Cindy Crawford
- Mariah Carey
- Gwyneth Paltrow
- Diane Sawyer
What can one expect from a man who not only insulted his wives, but didn’t even leave his own daughter. In another one of Stern interviews, Donald Trump spoke his thoughts out loud about his daughter, Ivanka Trump.
“You know who’s one of the great beauties of the world, according to everybody? And I helped create her. Ivanka. My daughter, Ivanka. She’s 6 feet tall, she’s got the best body. She made a lot money as a model—a tremendous amount”. We have all witnessed him live on TV even going as far as to confess, “If Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
What man in his right state of mind would notice his own daughter with that eye?
*shudders on repeat*
Coming back to the viral video we were talking about here, when the little girl calls out the ‘disgrace’ insult to fake Trump, and he in turn, goes further to hug her (So unlike himself). THAT’S the moment when most people backed off, considering it as a proof of the viral video being fake. Because hey! The real Donald would never, like ever, hug or get close to some kid who is calling him a disgrace. And a black girl, man, are you kidding us?

Besides, folks, whom are we trying to troll anyway? No one in this video would have made it alive out of this venue, because Trump wouldn’t take shit now that he’s in the office. Would he? It’s good that we can still hear the sounds of a huge studio audience in the background of the video.
Well, it’s safe to say many people were entertained with this fake viral video of Trump in the President Show. We are sure you also had a good laugh, if you were trolled, we can feel you, whereas if you feel offended, we’re sorry, but it’s a free world.
