Watch: The 2020 election drags on, talk shows prefer to laugh about it

American talk show hosts dressed the president for the winter, mocking his attitude to his opponent's lead

The name of the next president of the United States is not yet known, this Thursday, November 5, and yet Donald Trump already considers having won the election. American talk show hosts dressed the president for the winter, mocking his attitude to his opponent's lead.


 
"The advantage is that with the [Covid-19] pandemic, we are used to waiting for our results for days," quips Jimmy Kimmel, who works on ABC. While we still do not know this Thursday, November 5 which, Donald Trump or Joe Biden, will win the American presidential election, the talk shows do not hesitate to bring their offbeat look at the ballot, “tighter than a waltz between Donald and Ivanka Trump ”.

But what the talk show presenters have in their sights is above all the reaction of the tenant of the White House, desperate to claim victory, and who already considers having won the ballot, even then. that the count is still underway in several states. No wonder, reminds Trevor Noah (who is on The Daily Show on Comedy Central):

"This guy is doing exactly what he said he would do, he's been saying it for months."

And even in October 2016, Trump had already given early warning, he recalls. During his first campaign, he said: "I will fully accept the results of these historic big elections, if I am the winner."
