Broad City spent a lot of time last season talking about Hillary Clinton’s presidential run (she eventually showed up in a guest appearance). So it’s not like they live in a universe in which the outcome of the election would be unknown. Ilana Glazer told USA Today that she and Abbi Jacobson couldn’t not talk about Trump being president. But Trump’s name will be bleeped the whole season.
“We wrote (Season 4) being like, ‘Here we go! Hillary for president!’ [But after] this game-show host became president of our country, we rewrote a lot.”
One episode of the fourth season (which premieres in August) focuses on Ilana working through an inability to orgasm due to Trump-related hang-ups. Of course, they will never name him by name.
“There’s no airtime for this orange (person). We bleep his name the whole season.”
If Trump hisses back, his usual insults won’t have much weight here. “These are such disrespectful ladies, I can’t even call them ladies. They’re city broads, am I right Ivanka? Wait, what do you mean that’s what they’re called? Shit, well…how about this: they’re such low lives, I bet they live with rats. What? They had a hilarious episode about that? Shit.”
Several weeks ago, Scarlett Johansson was reportedly seen at a Saturday Night Live after-party putting some mouth moves on Weekend Update’s Colin Jost. Last week E! News asked Colin if he had anything to say about the Scarlett rumors, to which he replied: “What?! No way. No, I’m good.” He also said he was “very happy” in his personal life. Colin didn’t want to talk about it, and that sort of made me think it could have just been a drunken party hookup. As it turns out, it might not be so casual.
