‘Broad City’ Will Treat Trump’s Name Like Profanity + Bleep it in Season 4
Still can't utter "President Trump" aloud? Neither can Broad City stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, which is why they're taking drastic measures to keep The Donald's name verboten when the show returns.
In a new interview with USA Today, the comedians say they're still devastated by Trump's election and the hateful policy that has since stemmed from his administration. So, they're doing what they can to keep him honest.
"There's no airtime for this orange (person)," Glazer said. "We bleep his name the whole season."
Glazer added that she and Jacobson had to drastically overhaul the forthcoming season's story once the election results came in last November.
"We wrote (Season 4) being like, 'Here we go! Hillary for president!' " she said, but noted after "this game-show host became president of our country, we rewrote a lot."
In one forthcoming episode, Trump's election will have psychosomatic effects on Glazer's character.
"Ilana's 'powers' are decreasing during the current administration because it's just so hard to (orgasm) when you know so many people are in such danger," Glazer said. "So Ilana works through her Trump-related (hang-up) and it's wild."
Broad City will return to Comedy Central on August 23.
