Video of the Day: A Borat for the Tea Party Set

More

It turns out not quite everyone has given up on the dream of a Donald Trump run for the White House.

Meet Susie Sampson. She's a faux news anchor who gallivants around the country with an exaggerated southern accent and what appears to be a rather shabby wig, interviewing people and trying to get them to say outrageous things, in the manner of Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat character.

Of course, it's not that hard to get people to say silly things, and occasionally intolerant ones, with a camera rolling (see Ta-Nehisi Coates' takedown of Alexandra Pelosi's redneck-spotting expedition to Mississippi). This is a little more fun, though, for two reasons: One, she's in Orange County, California, rather than the Deep South. And two, she managed to find the only Republican voter in America who's not only hoping for a white knight candidate to jump into the race in May or June, but also wants that candidate to be Donald Trump.
