It's been heartening to see the reception for Jordan Peele's debut film Get Out, which is still doing big box office numbers after a great opening weekend, and has enjoyed rapturous critical reception — including praise from William Friedkin, director of The Exorcist. The film's satire of "woke" white liberals was vital and cutting, but what might the film have looked like if it starred some of the more visible peddlers of bigotry in the United States? Funny Or Die's new video Get Out (Of The White House) mashes up the film's (way, way too revealing) trailer with footage of Donald Trump, his daughter Ivanka, and the surrounding celebrities and members of the administration. Yeah, Kanye's in there with Ben Carson as two of the brainwashed black people in Trump's orbit. Like Get Out itself, the new mash-up is very funny and very, very real. Watch above.
