Conan Spoofs Trump/Ramos Fight

Conan O’Brien jumped on the recent confrontation between Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and Univision newscaster Jorge Ramos as fodder for a late night sketch. A voice actor playing Trump “calls” the show to object to Conan’s characterization of the incident.

Ironically, a fair amount of the humor in the sketch emerges from racial stereotypes. However, because those stereotypes are filtered through the presented caricature of Trump, they’re somehow not offensive.
