South Park to cut down on its Donald Trump gags, says creator

Mr. Garrison as President Donald Trump in South Park. "We would do an entire season and there would be one moment that played off something that had just happened and people would go, "South Park" is the show that does that.' And that's just not true". We kind of just started crossing some things over and carrying some things over, and then we did the big PC Principal season.

Trey Parker told The Los Angeles Times the show had fallen into the "trap" of mocking the U.S. president in its episodes every week.

'We fell into the same trap that Saturday Night Live fell into, where it was like we're becoming: "Tune in to see what we're going to say about Trump,"' Parker said.

Going forward, Parker said he hopes South Park can get back to what originally made the series a cult sensation. Well... "I definitely am not gonna just keep tracking Garrison because I don't care, I'm over it", Parker said matter-of-factly.

His role on Despicable Me 3 marks his first-ever animated voice-over role outside of South Park, on which he voices several characters including Cartman, Stan and Mr Mackey.

Cavaliers to sign Jeff Green to 1-year, $2.3 million deal
Green has averaged 13.5 points and 4.7 rebounds per game over his 10-year career, and is a 33.3 percent career 3-point shooter. The Cavs are one of the teams to have reportedly expressed interest in signing the 37-year-old sharpshooting guard.


When asked if he thought the president is amusing, Parked said: 'He's not intentionally amusing but he is intentionally using comedic art to propel himself'. "The things that we do - being outrageous and taking things to the extreme to get a reaction out of people - he's using those tools".

In a lengthy interview with The Hollywood Reporter before last season, the Comedy Central cartoon's 20th, Parker and show co-creator Matt Stone said they come up with episode ideas the week of air and are usually under the gun to get each episode done. "I think we're gonna go back more to that".

To say that Donald Trump's relationship with the media is tumultuous would be an understatement; the president has notoriously taken to his Twitter account to slam (literally, in a ridiculous doctored video from Wrestlemania 23) CNN, the "Fraud News Network", on multiple occasions, shaming the media for their "false" reporting about him.

"South Park" turns 20 this year. "And it's cool, man".
