Trump Bringing About End To Satire - Veep Star

The makers of the US TV satire Veep believe the rise of Donald Trump is making it increasingly difficult to parody American politics, one of its stars says.

Tony Hale, who plays the president's personal aide in the Sky Atlantic comedy, says if a character like Mr Trump had been created for the show, no one would have believed it.

Veep, which was created by British comedian Armando Iannucci, is set in the fictional office of a female vice president and has won numerous awards.

Mr Hale said: "There's already a comedy happening on the news. We might not need Veep any more.

"It's a little freaky. The crazy thing is if somebody came to us and gave us a character like Donald Trump and what he's said, the writers would be like, 'That's too broad'. No one would believe it. Well it's happening."

The billionaire property mogul and star of the US version of The Apprentice has sparked repeated controversy during his campaign to win the race for the Republican nomination for the presidency.

Among the policies he has mentioned are building a wall along the US's southern border to keep migrants out and banning Muslims from entering the country.

But since winning a much greater share of the votes in the caucuses and primaries, his rivals have dropped out and he has become the presumptive candidate.
