Last night, South Park aired the second episode of Season 19, and it should come as a surprise to exactly no one that it featured some insanely fucked up material, culminating in the death of Donald Trump. Well, it wasn’t really Donald Trump, and more of a caricature that embodied everything that show creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone see Trump as. Suffice to say, it wasn’t the kindest representation of a human being, but it also wasn’t the worst that South Park has delivered over the years.
The main thrust of the episode centered on Mr. Garrison’s disgust with his city and the rest of the country being overrun by illegal immigrants…er, undocumented immigrants. You might hear echoes of Trump’s presidential campaign in that, but Garrison isn’t talking about Mexicans; he’s pissed that all these Canadians are here and forcing people to learn their language – with words like “guy” and “buddy” – and follow their customs. After getting fired from South Park Elementary for calling one of them a Canuck, Garrison begins rallying for immigration policies that include building a wall between the U.S. and Canada and fucking all the immigrants to death “until the spirits leave their bodies.” As you can imagine, his efforts are championed by many citizens.
However, he finds out that Canada and its new Trump look-alike President have already built up a border wall, and they don’t want any Americans crossing into their country. Garrison finds a way, of course, and discovers that Canada is basically a wasteland now, with the President not really caring about anything that’s happening, so long as he gets to jam to “The Safety Dance.” And when Garrison finally lays his eyes on the man behind the mass exodus of Canadians, his plan changes from “fuck all the immigrants to death” to “fuck the Canadian president to death.” And so, after a brief rumble on a rug, he does.
You can watch that scene in the full episode here, or you can watch it in its entirety below. Know that it is definitely NSFW, even for South Park.
Yowzah! Following this heinous anus murder, Garrison isn’t convicted of anything, and he capitalizes on it by returning to South Park with a plan on running for President. His running mate? Caitlyn Jenner, of course. Speaking of, an unflattering version of Jenner appeared twice in the episode, and Parker and Stone definitely didn’t spare any real-life horror in her portrayal.
You can check out the show’s version of Jenner in the clip below.
What will South Park follow that up with over the next couple of years? We can’t wait to find out.
