Of course, Trump's name isn't actually bleeped out here but I'm thinking there's a possibility that it will be when the episode actually airs. Hillary for president!' " Glazer tells USA TODAY.
The hit Comedy Central show will bleep out all mentions of President Trump in the same vein as curse words in the upcoming season, star Ilana Glazer told USA Today.
Instead, the Broad City girls will address the Trump era in their own unique way.
Glazer and her co-star Abbi Jacobson explained they needed to rewrite season four of their show after Trump won the election. Glazer's character pledged to campaign for Clinton. Glazer discussed a new episode that premiered at Colossal Clusterfest in San Francisco earlier this month, in which "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".
It's really not much of a shock that some episodes of the fourth season revolved Hillary Clinton winning the presidency.
Broad City returns this fall on Comedy Central. Both Glazer and her co-creator Abbi Jacobson were major Hillary Clinton supporters in their both on- and off-screen personas.Clinton even made a cameo appearance in an episode last season. Obviously, history did not play out according to that scenario, and Glazer added that after "this game-show host became president of our country, we rewrote a lot".
Feeling like the media is a little too Trump-saturated lately?
