A few days ago, a welcome video for President Trump made by a Dutch late night show went viral, asking the newly anointed American president to make the Netherlands second — you know, with America being first for Trump and all that. It turns out that other European countries were jealous of the Dutch and their motives, and they came up with their own welcome clips for Trump.
They’re all using the same recipe: a voiceover of a Trump impersonator explains why a different other than the Netherlands should be second — or tenth if it’s Belgium. There’s the familiar tone, accent and speech style that you expect from Trump, all peppered with numerous jokes at the President.
It turns out Belgium doesn’t really care if it’s second after all, though it still has a welcome for Trump. And yes, it may or may not be upset about Trump’s hellhole remarks about a certain Belgian city.
Germany’s clip stands out for the obvious references to a particular dictator and a couple of extraordinary world wars it hosted.
Denmark is pissed off at the Dutch people and makes the case it’s a much better second option for Trump.
Switzerland is the inventor of Brexit, among other things, and has lots of gold laying around.
Portugal is seriously annoyed with the Dutch, has the best real football team in the world, and is the best candidate to be second.
Oh, and if you still haven’t seen the clip that started it all, then you absolutely must watch the Netherlands’ welcome video to Trump.
