9 times Donald Trump was funnier in real life than any impression of him by Johnny Depp
It’s Johnny Depp as you’ve never seen him before - and Trump, exactly as you’ve seen him.
Captain Jack Sparrow looks unrecognizable in his latest film role as he takes on The Donald for a 50-minute movie, Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal: The Movie, for comedy website Funny or Die.
The work of fiction is based on the presidential candidate’s real-life 1987 part memoir/ part business advice book, and opens with Ron Howard claiming that Trump made a documentary in the ’80s to air after the Super Bowl which was never televised.
The film touches on all of Trump’s infamous opinions, migration, race, women, and brass buildings. If you can manage to find 50 minutes in your day, here is the full version:
But sometimes fact is even stranger than fiction, and it’s quite possible that the real Donald Trump defies any and all attempts at being the subject of parody. Here is but a taste of the many occasions on which the billionaire was even funnier in real life than Depp could ever hope to make him in a film:
