Jeremy Clarkson Would Love to Kill Donald Trump on “The Grand Tour”
Donald Trump is going to be the next president of the United States, whether you like it or not—and if you belong to the majority of Americans who hold an unfavorable opinion of the incoming Commander in Chief, you probably don’t like it one bit.
Well, from all the way across the pond, British auto enthusiast Jeremy Clarkson can feel your pain. In fact, you may be happy to learn he’s very keen on killing Trump.
Calm down, secret service—he doesn’t mean for real. But on his current Amazon Prime series The Grand Tour, Clarkson has a recurring segment called “Celebrity Brain Crash,” in which he stages the deaths of celebrity guests, who randomly “die” before they get a chance to be interviewed. The bit has already pretended to claim the lives of actors Jeremy Renner and Charlize Theron.

And Clarkson clearly realizes that no one would make for a better “Celebrity Brain Crash” victim than self-proclaimed very-good-brain-haver Donald Trump. So when asked recently if he would consider having Trump on the show, Clarkson did not hesitate.
“God yes,” Clarkson told Business Insider. “Have you seen what we’re doing with everybody?”
“There’s some very amusing ways [we’d kill Trump off],” he added. “We live in interesting times.”
“Interesting” is certainly one way to describe it! “Hilarious” and “properly funny” is another, and Clarkson had previously used those words when discussing Trump’s victory in another interview, because he has the luxury of not living here.
However, it would be great if Clarkson could pretend to bump off Trump on The Grand Tour, because many of us who do have to suffer the embarrassment of having a spray-tanned television game show host as our president would find his faux demise very cathartic.
In the meantime, we’ll just have to keep petitioning the US government to change the official Presidential Anthem from “Hail to the Chief” to this little ditty:

Calm down, secret service—it’s not a threat, it’s a rhetorical question.
