South Park has always been bold when it comes to its satirical comedy, attacking all sorts of celebrities over the years, but this week’s show was exceptionally brazen. The episode was called “Where My Country Gone” and has Donald Trump as a Canadian who falls prey to the immigration policies of Mr. Garrison. In the episode, Trump is quite brutally raped and murdered.
Warning: this video contains shocking animated scenes and coarse language and is definitely NSFW.
So far, Mr. Trump hasn’t commented on the South Park episode, but there have been plenty of others speaking out about it. People reported that one Twitter user wrote about how South Park is nailing its commentary on current affairs.
“Ever since #SouthPark writers turned the show into one fluid storyline their social commentary on current affairs has [sic] been incredible.”
The South Park episode was viewed by 1.5 million people, although Mr. Trump himself might not have been one of them, since he was busy berating Fox News after a contributor described in colorful words what Carly Fiorina did to Trump in the GOP debate, Deadline reported.
“[She] cut off his balls with the precision of a surgeon.”
As People reported, although Fiorina isn’t being dragged through the mud by South Park and her clear gain in the polls says otherwise, Donald Trump didn’t seem to think she made all that much of a good impression at the debate
“If you listen to her speaking… she says the same thing over and over and over. It’s almost like robotic. You look at her, and it’s robotic.”
South Park episode aside, Mr. Trump has decided to boycott Fox News all together.
.@FoxNews has been treating me very unfairly & I have therefore decided that I won’t be doing any more Fox shows for the foreseeable future.

Deadline reported Fox News‘ statement about the incident.
“At 11:45am today, we canceled Donald Trump’s scheduled appearance on The O’Reilly Factor on Thursday, which resulted in Mr. Trump’s subsequent tweet about his ‘boycott’ of Fox News. The press predictably jumped to cover his tweet, creating yet another distraction from any real issues that Mr. Trump might be questioned about. When coverage doesn’t go his way, he engages in personal attacks on our anchors and hosts, which has grown stale and tiresome. He doesn’t seem to grasp that candidates telling journalists what to ask is not how the media works in this country.”
It seems Donald Trump is doing a good job of digging his own media grave without the help of South Park, but the South Park episode definitely gives a good indication of what many think of Trump’s immigration policies.
