As you’d expect, the video begins with a voice speaking over clips of President Trump on the campaign trail, describing him as “the strongest prime minister in history.” About footage of Kanye West in the White House and kneeling soccer players, he jokes: “He’s not racist! Blacks love him so much that they kneel in front of him.” He jokes that Trump went to war when he was 15 to make fun of his lack of military service. He mocked the coronavirus response by saying Trump was responsible for “350 million Americans still alive.” It ends with “Vote for Prime Trump or you will be dejected!”
