If there’s one certainty in the pandemonium-ridden landscape of politics, it’s that Donald Trump is pretty damn egotistic. Any which way you look at it, you’d probably have to be in order to preach an ignorant campaign filled with xenophobia and misogyny. And you’d definitely have to be in order to say, “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.” Because, yes, he really said that.
So, is there anything more that Donald Trump loves than himself? Most likely, no. Maybe that’s what makes Josh Gad’s Lip Sync Battle so hilarious. Maybe it’s the image of Trump frolicking around to Divinyl’s “I Touch Myself” while other Trumps are in a kick line around him. Maybe it’s that his pants rip off to reveal shorts made of money. Maybe it’s his unique spin on “Wrecking Ball.” Or maybe—just maybe—it’s the fact that the image of Trump making out with himself is something that wouldn’t really surprise us. Either way, it’s very well played.
