In a night of Donald Trump jabs, Sean Spicer cameos, and more Donald Trump jabs, political comedy continues to reign supreme at the 2017 Emmys!

After Julia Louis-Dreyfus won her historic sixth Outstanding Lead Actress award for playing Selina Meyer in Veep, the acclaimed HBO series once again landed a win for Outstanding Comedy Series!

Atlanta, Black-ish, Master of None, Modern Family, Silicon Valley, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and of course, The Trump White House. Ha!

Politician Chokes On His Dinner, Busts Open Face BC He Was Laughing So Hard At HBO's Veep!

no title

Politics are a dangerous game, but apparently not as dangerous as political satire.

That's what Australian politician Graham Perrett learned after almost laughing himself to death while watching Veep.

The acclaimed HBO comedy had the Labor MP in (literal) stitches after he laughed so hard, he choked on his sushi and knocked himself unconscious — giving himself a black eye and a nasty gash on his cheek!

The parliamentarian from Queensland told BuzzFeed News the incident went down last Sunday night while he was watching the Season Six premiere of the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning political comedy.

Perrett was chowing down on sushi during a scene where congressman — or, as Selina Meyer calls him, "Jolly Green Jizz Face" — Jonah Ryan gets caught by frenemy Dan Egan shaving his head to trick people into thinking he still has cancer.

Perrett said the following scene full of shaving puns was so hilarious, it led him to a full on choking fit. He explained:

Veep Had To Cut A Golden Shower Joke Because It Was Too Real Once Donald Trump Became President!

no title

Is it life imitating art? Or art trying like hell not to imitate life because life is too damn depressing??

On Veep, Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays a Vice President who became President despite being largely unqualified and hilariously self-centered.

Sound familiar? It did to David Mandel as well.

Sean Spicer's Hitler Press Conference Fail Fits WAY Too Perfectly With The Veep Closing Credits!

Filed under: TV NewsPolitikDonald TrumpYouTubeEmmysFunnyJulia Louis-Dreyfus

It's a tough time for political satire when the current White House one big running joke.

No one knows this better than David Mandel and the creative team behind the acclaimed HBO political comedy Veep.

The showrunner admitted that Donald Trump's administration has made it particularly hard to satirize politics when the actual POTUS makes Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Selina Meyer look like a potty-mouthed George Washington.

And although Matt Walsh plays the world's dumbest press secretary on the Emmy winning series, actual press secretary Sean Spicer gives the dim-witted Mike McLintock a run for his money!

YouTube user Dan Ketchum proved this with the help of Spicer's latest White House press briefing blunder, in which he falsely claimed Adolf Hitler "didn't sink to using chemical weapons" on his people.

To demonstrate how we're actually living in a political comedy, Ketchum spliced together footage from Spicer's presser with Veep's closing credits — which usually tag the episode by highlighting a character's incompetency.

Watch the hilarious clip (below) to see why Spicey really belongs in the ensemble comedy!

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Wins Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor In A Comedy Series At The 2017 SAG Awards — And BLASTS Trump's Immigration Ban!!


SAG Awards 2017 - Female Actor In a Comedy Series by Videosuploaded123

Julia Louis-Dreyfus doesn't care if the Russians hacked the SAG Awards, because it just worked in her favor!!

The comedy legend just won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series for Veep, and just like Donald Trump — she won by a LANDSLIDE!!

Instead of doing her usual comedic bit when she took the stage, JLD channeled her inner Selina Meyer with an important message about the president's despicable immigration ban — specifically, saying how "un-American" it is.

Revealing that her own father was an immigrant, the 56-year-old blasted POTUS's xenophobic executive order, calling the ban a "blemish" on our country. Preach!!!!

The Seinfeld alum beat out some tough competition for the prize; including Uzo Aduba in Orange Is the New Black, Jane Fonda in Grace and Frankie, Ellie Kemper in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and Lily Tomlin, Grace and Frankie! Brava!

Ch-ch-check out the actress' powerful speech (above)!
