Just a few short weeks ago, President Trump officially took office in the United States. His controversial policies and abrasive speeches have sent shockwaves across the world. In fact, many feel his far right point of view is no laughing matter whatsoever.
And yet, the inauguration day celebrations on January 20th had countless spectators giggling wildly, regardless of their political loyalties.
If you’re ready to share a laugh, take a look at this hilarious video, which reimagines what the politicians at the day’s festivities may have been saying to one another as the new president prepared to take over the leadership of the country.
Watch the Hilarity Unfold
As the video opens, we see President-elect Trump’s arrival at the White House with his wife, Melania. The couple shares a funny exchange with President Obama and the First Lady, before Mr. Trump makes his way onto the stage where the swearing in will take place.
Throughout the four-minute clip, you will hear silly imaginary remarks from many other notable attendees at the inauguration, including Hillary Clinton and former President George W. Bush. The new Vice President, Mike Pence, also makes an appearance in the short video.
Follow along and see if you can decipher some of what the people are saying. If you find that some of the sentences don’t make sense to you, don’t worry—they don’t make sense to native English speakers, either.
Indeed, this is one of the reasons English-speaking people find the video so funny. Many of President Trump’s actual speeches have been very unusual, to say the very least, and some viewers of this video think the reimagined words sound much like what he says in real life.
Bad Lip Reading frequently uses video footage of recent events to create parodies, with absolutely hilarious results. They even use actors who try to mimic the voices of the people in the clips. As you’ll see, the creators attempt to match the lip movements with words in the English language.
