TV Show Refuses to Say the President’s Name
Hollywood again (surprise, surprise) contributes to the country's deepening polarization
President Donald Trump’s name is likened to a swear word in the upcoming season of the Amy Poehler-produced “Broad City.”
“There’s no airtime for this orange [person],” Ilana Glazer, co-creator and star of the Comedy Central show, told USA Today. “We bleep his name the whole season.”
Glazer and her co-star, Abbi Jacobson, explained they needed to rewrite season four of their show after Trump won the election.
"We wrote [season four] being like, 'Here we go! Hillary for president!'" Glazer said. "[But after] this game-show host became president of our country, we rewrote a lot."
In the NSFW trailer for the upcoming season, Glazer's character exclaims, "F--k you, Trump." However, a rep for the Comedy Central show confirmed to Fox News that Trump's name will be bleeped throughout season four.
Jacobson and Glazer invited then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for a guest spot on their show last year. Glazer's character pledged to campaign for Clinton.
"Broad City" season four premieres August 23.
