Donald Trump Impersonator Goes Viral Reading President's Strange Letter To Erdogan

Anthony Atamanuik jumps into character as POTUS for the spoof bit.

Donald Trump appears to dictate his bizarre letter to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in spoof audio that’s going viral.

Trump impersonator Anthony Atamanuik, who portrayed the U.S. president on Comedy Central’s “The President Show,” voiced the “leaked” clip that he shared to Twitter on Wednesday.

Atamanuik, in character as the president, mispronounced various words and called the Turkish capital of Ankara by the name “Anakin” in the comedy bit.

“Star Wars” actor Mark Hamill immediately responded to the tweet:

Many people initially thought that Trump’s Oct. 9 letter to his Turkish counterpart, in which he warned Erdogan against invading northern Syria, was fake.

“Let’s work out a good 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,” Trump wrote. “Don’t be a tough guy. Don’t be a fool! I will call you later,” he wrote.
