American tele came to Scotland to discuss Trump with hilarious results: “Only regret I have is that I never put him on his arse when I met him”

A popular American TV show came to Scotland earlier this week to discuss their new President and son of a Scottish immigrant Donald Trump.

The show called Full Frontal hosted by comedian Samantha Bee sent co-host Amy Hoggart to Scotland to “get a few tips from people who have been dealing with oppression since the Roman Times”.

It then cuts to a map of Britain with Scotland being marked out as “Mad Blue Bastards”.

When Amy arrives in Scotland she speaks to the man who refused to sell his land to the reality-tv star turned fascist dictator and then gets a few opinions from the local pub.

They also talk about the protests that have taken place in Scotland including this subtle sign from Glasgow comedian Janey Godley.

They also track down the legend that rubbed a static balloon on the Donald’s hair when he was in Scotland.

The segment was part of the Full Frontal with Samantha Bee show which is a half hour weekly show on the TBS network.

But the hero of the piece is farmer Michael Forbes who been fighting the Trump team over his land for years and speaks for most of Scotland when he says “the man’s an arsehole”

  1. The unfunny middle class English woman mocking the Scots after they accommodated her by letting her speak to them – ‘ginger Jesus,’ ‘dork’ – had a bloody cheek. Least the Scots in it were, unlike her, actually genuinely funny.

    1. What we do best in Scotland is take the piss out of ourselves. I’m quite sure the subjects saw the humour even if you missed it.
