Namibia turned Donald Trump's 'shithole' slur into a spoof sales pitch for a safari tour

  • A tour agency in Namibia turned Donald Trump’s slur into a sales pitch.
  • The video mocks Trump while touring “beautiful shithole” on west coast of Africa.
  • Warning: It does contain multiple uses of the word “shithole.”

A tour agency in Namibia has returned fire on Donald Trump with a parody video talking up its credentials as “Africa’s number one shithole country.”

The spoof short video was published on YouTube in the wake of a political backlash against Trump’s alleged description of immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and unspecified parts of Africa as “all these people from shithole countries.”

The video, narrated by a comedy Donald Trump impersonator, includes an address to “Trump America,” which invites US citizens to “come to Shithole Namibia, one of the best shithole countries out there.”

It then lists “shithole” features of the country, like its abundant wildlife, natural beauty, conservation areas, and even an outdoor toilet.

One section says: “It’s really tough out here, but shithole Namibia has over 300 days of sunshine and our lodges are situated in such a way that one has the perfect view over this beautiful shithole.”

In total the video uses the slur 16 times. President Trump has denied he used the word, which was first reported by the Washington Post, but several others have insisted he did.

It was produced by Gondwana Collection, a Namibian agency which runs safari tours and wildlife lodges. In parts, the video resembles a viral post from last year, in which a Dutch comedian urged Trump to complement his “America First” policy by putting “The Netherlands second.”

The film ends with a brief clip showing Trump’s apparent ignorance of African countries, in which he mispronounces Namibia’s name as “Nambia” (which sounds like Zambia, its neighbour to the north-east).
