'Broad City' Will Bleep Out Donald Trump's Name In Upcoming Season

Posted June 15, 2017

Even though President Trump got a big "eff you" in the recently released Broad City Season 4 trailer, the Comedy Central show will make sure the president's name doesn't get any airtime.

The move comes after the pair dedicated an entire episode of Broad City's third season to Hillary Clinton - including a guest appearance from her.

With the deeply horrifying mistake that is the Trump administration looking like it's here to stay (for now), the mostly-liberal entertainment industry is having to make some hard decisions as to how they address the current political climate.

Then again, it's not entirely outside the realm of what's expected in the world of Broad City for Trump's name to be treated like such a bad word that it warrants bleeping.

Comedy Central will be airing new episodes beginning in August.

But although Trump's presidency takes a psychological toll on the characters this season, the man himself will go unmentioned. "Hillary for president!'" she said.

From actress and executive producer Amy Poehler, Broad City follows two weed-smoking 20-year-olds - played by actresses Abbi Jacobson and Glazer - living in New York City.

Of the hyper-sexual scene, Glazer says Jacobson's character struggles to stimulate herself sexually due to all the "danger" imposed by the Trump administration. Obviously, history did not play out according to that scenario, and Glazer added that after "this game-show host became president of our country, we rewrote a lot".

A trailer teasing season four sees the show's stars wearing pussy hats at a protest.

For example, one episode explores how Glazer is a witch, because a witch is "just a woman who's in touch with her womanhood" - speaking to how women have felt targeted by the Trump agenda simply for being women.
