Peter Serafinowicz is a genius to redub Trump’s own words in a fay accent. By using a voice that his supporters most despise, he transitions Trump from a macho man into a jaded nelly.
Playing with Trump’s identity is especially brilliant because any kind of fluidity – be it gender fluidity, identity ambiguity, mental flexibility – is as mortal a threat to him and his supporters as the light of day is to vampires. He hated it when a woman played Sean Spicer. Their fraught and fragile identity depends on rigidity… Only white and male is right. There is no other. Everything else must be excluded / demeaned / destroyed. All to support a lie, and live in denial of the most basic facts, like, for example, that America is a nation of immigrants and – going further back – that it was built on the genocide of the people to whom this land belongs.
