Comedy Against Trumpism
A short while back, a comedy TV show in The Netherlands made a very funny video at the expense of Donald Trump. It was based on the idea of Trump going around saying, "America First," so the Dutch thought they should make a plea to at least be second.
The plea caught on, and other comedy shows around the world got competitive and, largely using the same format, made their own case for being second. And more countries are joining in weekly. This has all be done under various headings -- "Comedy Against Trumpism" is one. Another is "WHO Wants to Be Second?" And then there's "Every Second Counts." It's all part of the same effort.
Not all that I've seen are wonderful -- but most are. And some are laugh out loud hoots. But of all the really funny ones, the best I've seen so far is the first, from The Netherlands.
I'll post some of the better ones here, but to start with this is the one that started it all.
It begins in Dutch, but at about the 40-second mark, the official video will kick in.
