David Tennant Reads Mean Scottish Tweets To Donald Trump

It’s fair to say that on a particularly wretched Friday for Scotland’s remain voters in last week’s tumultuous EU referendum, the only person pleased by the sight of Republican presidential candidate and sentient stale Cheeto Donald Trump landing his ‘Trumpcopter’ at his Aberdeenshire golf course was Trump himself.

While wearing hats and dodging Nazi golf balls, Trump felt obliged to wade into the divisive Brexit debate with a tweet declaring that Scotland was ‘going wild over the vote’ and ‘they took back their country’…

Only they weren’t ‘going wild’ over the result because, well, 62% of them had voted to remain in the EU while 52% of England had voted to leave the EU…and you know how much Scottish people love being called English.

Needless to say the result of his tone deaf truth dodging tweet was a lot of really angry Scottish people tweeting him to tell him in very plain, very funny terms just how wrong he was.

Now, giving voice to the very sweary rhetoric on Monday night, Full Frontal host Samantha Bee decided to enlist David Tennant to read out some of the quintessentially Scottish replies to Trump’s tweet in his charming native burr.

Obviously the clip below contains some very naughty language.

    ok, that Trump angel is one of the scariest things ever. except for the real Trump, of course.
    Sad that our Brit satirists have been so silent that we feel so refreshed by a blast from over the pond.
    Isn’t it great that a political programme in another country includes TWO WHO actors in less than 7 minutes?

    Donald Trumpf is one of the most unpleasant people in the world today. His popularity is genuinely unsettling. While he’s correct that Scotland voted to leave (in that the UK voted to leave and Scotland is part of the UK) I’ll take any excuse to see people stand up to him. I can’t see Trumpf paying any attention to it, even if it is the Tenth Doctor doing it… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7fce4b8383819a18eb6912441b5ee503d5c34af76e125e5bbf42dce6a0d64de2.gif

    As a proud Scot, we had a referendum and voted to remain part of the UK. As a proud Brit, we had a referendum to leave the EU and voted to leave! Do none of the remain voters – especially those here in Scotland not understand the meaning of the word DEMOCRACY!!! Stop spitting your dummies out and let’s make the most of what the UK as a whole voted for. That f*cking Sturgeon and her predecessor Salmond are twats who should be working with the rest of the UK to make the best of things given the democratic process – not create more division! And why can’t we here in Scotland have a leader whose name isn’t fish-related?

      FrancoPabloDiablo for next First Minister!

        Thanks for your endorsement but sadly my surname isn’t fish-related! Seems to be the only prerequisite needed for the job – it’s certainly not common sense or ability.

          Maybe you should start pretending to be an ultra-patriotic Scot – I’m talking Donald Trump, Nick Griffen levels of patriotism here – and start to infiltrate the Scottish NationalSocialist* Party until you’ve won their trust, then the rest is easy.

          *Google it.

    Trump is a schoolyard bully that never grew up (he could learn something from Chris Eccleston, in that case). His whole slogan “Make America Great Again” is the battle cry of the idiots who believe the US was this perfect, conservative utopia in the 1950s, when that was more a pop culture construction than actual reality.

      “Trump is a schoolyard bully that never grew up” – This is the best description of him that I’ve read yet! It’s so true as well, look no further than how he responds to any minority group you’d care to name. Given the choice of Clinton or someone else I would always have picked someone else…until Trumpf appeared! I’m so pleased I’m not an American right now with the choice of an unpleasant person or a very unpleasant person!
