Funny, but also a little scary, a Facebook video posted by Comedy Central’s At Midnight has gone viral, notching up over 7.5million views in just over two days.
The clip takes the opening titles of cult comedy The Golden Girls but super imposes the heads of Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Mike Pence (the Indiana Governor who is Trump’s Presidential running mate) and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un on to Blanche, Rose, Dorothy and Sophia.
Both Putin and Kim Jong-un preside over countries where LGBT people face discriminatory legal challenges, while Pence has signed into legislation in Indiana that bars LGBT people from discrimination protections.
Trump recently claimed that he is a friend of the LGBT community, but has previously spoken out against same-sex marriage legislation and in favor of faith-based organizations being allowed to discriminate.
Perhaps they truly could get along like the best of friends: a chilling idea indeed!
