You might think it unlikely that Donald Trump would call Barack Obama for advice, for something like Valentine’s Day or otherwise. And you would of course be right in thinking that because it would never, ever happen—unless of course it was a skit on Conan, of course.

Which is exactly what we’re presented with here, as Trump calls Obama asking for some Valentine’s Day tips, specifically if there’s a nice little romantic restaurant near the White House where he can get a cozy table for two.

But it has to be Italian, because that’s what Putin likes.

That’s just one of the many burns that the video throws Trump’s way. Others include Trump telling Obama about three tweeting toilets he’s had installed in the White House, because he likes to tweet while sitting on the throne.

He also brags to the former POTUS about how many executive orders he’s issued. Like one making all Asian people Japanese. “You can’t do that.” remarks Obama. “Too late, signed it, pen’s in the Smithsonian.” Trump replies.

Obviously this is a satirical sketch but the way Trump speaks, it doesn’t seem that far removed from what he might actually say. But that’s the trouble now with Trump, like the South Park creators recently said in an interview with the Australian Broadcasting Company: satire’s becoming increasingly hard under Trump. “It’s tricky now because satire has become reality.” they said. In fact they’re no longer going to ridicule Trump because “what was actually happening was much funnier than anything we could come up with. So we decided to kind of back off and let them do their comedy and we’ll do ours.”

That’s not to say comedians should stop trying though. On that note, check out Conan’s previous “Trump Calls Obama” skit below.
