Fun - for a liberal like me anyway - at the beginning, but needs to be edited down considerably. I guess it needs a long depressing string of Trump "atrocities" to set up the "pull the plug on himself" gag at the end, though. I don't think it will change much of any Republican minds since it is making fun of those Repubs that aren't never-Trumpers.

As much as I did get a kick out of parts of it, I'd give it a D/D+.

They should have ended it with him reaching for the plug.

It would have worked better with some recognizable comic actors riffing on their known roles, fewer examples, but recited at increasing speed to increase the tension, and a plug-pull that is more central in the frame, to make it clear. The coma-guy could say "Make it stop" before pulling the plug, and then the announcer full of gravitas could say "Only you can make it stop."

It's all about the timing.

1. Well, they are all wearing masks, so recognition is hampered.

2. I’m pretty sure that’s Stephen Root in the ball cap, and he’s got the bona fides.

I enjoyed it.

I think it was Stephen Root.
