Anthony Atamanuik, host of “The President Show,” put his own spin on an immediately-viral letter President Trump sent to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, though initial public reaction to the letter proved it was already pretty surreal without his touch.
Atamanuik donned his signature Trumpian accent to read the letter in a clip posted to Twitter Wednesday, delivering lines urging the Middle East leader to not be a “tough guy” or a “fool,” and to not “let the world down.” For effect, Atamanuik mispronounced a few words here and there, including Erdogan’s name.
“Let’s work out a great deal! You don’t want to be responsible for slaughtering thousands of people, and I don’t want to be responsible for destroying the Turkish economy — and I will,” he read dramatically.
“History will look upon you favorably if you get this done the right and humane way. It will look upon you forever as the devil if good things don’t happen,” he continued. “Don’t be a tough guy. Don’t be a fool!”
The letter was sent three days after Trump ordered that U.S. troops be withdrawn from northern Syria, leaving America’s Kurdish allies vulnerable to an attack from Turkish forces. Trump’s letter appeared to urge Erdogan not to invade and attack the Kurds, who have been an ally to America in the fight against ISIS.
“Okay, thank you @TonyAtamanuik, I needed that,” wrote a Twitter user. “It was just paralyzingly horrible, now at least I can laugh.”
