WATCH: Movie of the moment ‘Get Out’ meets the Trumps in hilarious spoof trailer

Racially-charged and socially-challenging Get Out is comedian-turned-director Jordan Peele’s first film and it’s safe to say he smashed it. 

Sitting at 99% on Rotten Tomatoes, the psychological thriller follows a young black photographer named Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) as he travels upstate with white girlfriend Rose (Allison Williams) to meet her parents for the first time.

Obviously, things aren’t as they seem and it turns out the whole town is a shade of fucked up whiteness, which Peele uses as an examination of race relations in America, Which could hardly be more timely with a man like Donald Trump sitting in the White House.

Cue Funny Or Die who have executed the perfect spoof trailer, where Get Out meets the Trumps. 

Instead of Rose introducing Chris to her family, the clip sees Ivanka introducing her black boyfriend to her father, who insists he’s the least racist person, he loves meeting black people. Melania Trump looks like she’s got Stockholm Syndrome as she pretends that everything is normal (not far from reality, tbh) while the Trump boys go huntin’.

Chris realises there’s some weird stuff going on in the family (like Trump’s praise of his daughter’s physical appearance) and it’s topped off when Kanye West appears to be the only other black guy in the area and he definitely isn’t in a good way

It’s both totally terrifying and hilarious:
