The irrepressible folks at Put Chutney, a Tamil YouTube channel that consistently produces comic and insightful commentary on a wide range of subjects relevant to South India, have come up with yet another political satire. What if Donald Trump, the next American President, were to contest in elections in Tamil Nadu?
In the video, Trump (Aswin Rao) takes up the challenge of "Let's make Tamil Nadu great again!" and gives up his presidency to fly all the way to the Indian state.
Trump's love for building walls, turning away immigrants and assaulting women find a place in the script, with the new 2k note with its "advanced" features becoming a part of his campaign. And thumbs up for the dig at "religious" TV stars.
Forget Trump though - the man who will give you a belly-ache is Captain (Vijaykanth) who says hilarious things like, "Yeah, Trump came. In the English that I know, I asked him 'Tumhara naam kya hai?'" Vaiko (Rajiv) makes an appearance too. Amma and Kalaignar, however, are conspicuously absent.
