    That gold standard comment was definitely throwing shade at Alec Baldwin lol

    This guy is okay - Zach Hadel (Psychicpebbles) is the best.

    Not the best Trump impersonation I heard.

    For book writers. Writers don't put down people. So this guy is full of crap.

    It is Anthony Atamanuik’s sacred patriotic duty to make another series of The President Show.

    I've read 72 books this year - this is my favorite! The audiobook is absolutely brilliant.

    Wow. His voice almost naturally sounds like #45. Except that AA's vocabulary and diction are exceptional, compared to #45's.

  • RedVIII

    No offense to Darrell Hammond or anyone else, but Anthony, YOU are the new gold standard for Trump impressions.

  • A Cool Million

    IDK, trump stands with his butt "presented," too. From what we know of his love of having his butt punished the most obvious reason for his butt posture is that he's a trained submissive. Who can deny his lifelong experience in being probed?

  • Jean Roch

    This guy's trump would be hilarious *even* if nobody knew who trump is.

    Can he explain the evolution of that beak he calls a nose?

  • Stephan Leo

    I think Will Sasso is the gold standard of doing Trump.

    By FAR the best impression I've seen of Trump. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY comes close.

      Yes! That was the best thing on tv for a while. He wrote most of it himself too. The humor was unbelievably dark in places. Just fantastic.

  • Cella Gee

    His actual voice sounds a little trumpy.

    • TCt83067695
      TCt83067695 6 months ago +4

      I think it's morphed. He didnt use to sound like that in older videos before Trump

    Why does he sound like Trump but look like Gru...?
    I'm serious, this is actually disturbing me, just look at that nose

    Trump sits the way he does because he probably spends most of his time on the toilet tweeting.

    • Molly Spurgeon
      Molly Spurgeon 6 months ago +2

      I think you're on to something. I always chalked it up to some incorrectly perceived alpha body language like his weirdo handshake. Or because he's lacking a spine to hold him upright. But honestly, I think you nailed it.

    • Nightsgrow

      You hit the trump on the head

    • Lisa Wood

    His "soft Trump" sounds kind of like Brando's Vito Corleone. Which is appropriate.

  • maryinsanfrancisco

    OMG, BEST Trump impersonator hands down. He made a cameo as Trump on the daily show last year (I think it the white house bracket thing) and to this day, out of the blue I sometimes hear "And she wasn't even Asian. She wasn't even Asian!" and "Back to you Don Lemon."

    • Ph@tMantv
      Ph@tMantv 6 months ago +4

      Agreed 110% he's the BEST impersonation hands down.... the president show is life.

      i prefer Baldwin. His impression is over the top comedic without being authentic.

    Anthony is a loser, he attacked Trump, so he got low ratings and his show got cancelled, haha
