'Holy Melania' - Comedy Site Funny or Die Delivers Brutal and Hilarious Trump Takedown

Election '16

In the name of truth, justice and comedy, Funny or Die is tackling lies and awfulness sown by Donald Trump's presidential campaign in fabulous fashion. The episode on Trump's hypocritical message on outsourcing is part of the comedy site's series "Donald Decoded," and is viewable on the DNC's YouTube account.

In the sketch, Austan Goolsbee, former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers and member of President Obama's cabinet, plays the straight man to comedian Ken Jeong (of the Dan Harmon show "Community") in what Mediaite calls an "unlikely comedy duo."

Jeong goes googly-eyed over a clip of Donald Trump saying, "[Re]member when we used to have, 'Made in the USA,' right? When was the last time you've seen it?"

"Yeah, you make stuff right here!" Jeong cheers, causing Goolsbee to make quite possibly the most skeptical face ever seen.

Jeong worries he's mistaken. "What?"

"He didn't do that," Goolsbee points out.

"What do you mean, he didn't do that?" Jeong replies. "There's all kinds of Trump stuff. Hotels. Suits. Ties. Furniture."

"Look at this Trump shirt," Jeong says while making a desperate-for-evidence grab of a Trumped-out mannequin. "Made in good old... Bangladesh. What?"

Trump tie? "China!"

Trump suit: "Mexico?!"
