Arizona’s Public Integrity Alliance created a hilarious new parody video mocking not only Donald Trump but his supporters as well. The ad stars Phoenix comedian Brian Nissen, in his role as “Dwain,” a mullet-headed redneck with an IQ so low, you would have to dig to find it.
A great twist in this video is that its primary targets are Trump voters, rather than The Donald himself. The character Dwain is depicted as your average Trump ditto-head who constantly heaps praise onto The Donald while repeating his fascist rhetoric. The problem is, Trump supporters are incapable of realizing it’s mocking them.
Tyler Montague, Founder and President of PIA, said that he intended for the video to inform intelligent voters just how bad it is to support Trump’s ideas. However, he admitted that many of the supporters which commented on it are just so stupid they don’t even realize they are being insulted.
“I’ve noticed that some of the Trump fans loved it,” he explains of the video. “They’re like, `Yeah, this is everything Trump is about, this is dead on.’ We’re like, `You’re kidding us, right?'”
Attaching “intelligent” to Trump voters was probably not the best idea.

Montague gave the following reason for creation of the ad:
“When he said the stuff about Muslims, we were like, we’ve got to call that out, and make fun of the absurdity of that,” Montague tells New Times.
“This country has spent the last 70 years lashing itself over how wrong it was to put the Japanese in internment camps,” he says. “And when Trump says that about Muslims, people say, `Yeah, that’s a great idea.’ Really? No. That’s a bad idea. Come on.”
“I don’t want to overstate it, but [Trump’s] kind of a fascist,” he observes. “It’s the closest thing to fascism that America’s had, at least in our lifetime.”
