All summer, Seth has been floating an idea to get Donald Trump to drop out of the presidential race. He (like many other people) thinks that Trump doesn’t actually want the job of being president, he just wants the prestige and the title. So Seth created Chicago President, a scripted series on NBC in which Donald Trump would get to play the president, but of course it would be set in Chicago. Since Donald Trump still hasn’t responded to this generous offer of a guaranteed hit show, Seth decided to change his tactics.
Using a copy of The Art of the Deal that he bought from a guy selling books on the sidewalk, Seth realized that he actually had all the leverage. Since Trump wasn’t willing to negotiate, Seth dropped the offer. Now, instead of playing the president, Donald will have to play the VP to President Chris Christie, among other humiliations. Should’ve taken the first offer, Donald! It’s only going to go down from here.
