Spitting Image have been around for decades.  Hell, you can go on YouTube right now and watch clips on their channel.

Honestly, they're not as funny now as they were in the 80s, but what is?

Everyone loved Ronnie in the 80s and everyone loved Spitting Image making fun of Ronnie. There was no butthurt.

Can't you see this is the land of confusion?

The first episode depicted Donald Trump as a petty egotist, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden as senile, and Prince Harry as a purposeless drifter

Oh wow, it's such a shame we're missing out on such original and biting satire!

Bonzo was in show biz and had a sense of humor.  Terrible policies, but a sense of humor.

NBC used to run Spitting Image specials in the '80s.
They seem to have lost their balls in the last 3 decades.

Brandon Tartikoff took NBC's balls with him when he left in '91.

That's because it is.

Roger Law, the show's co-creator, had previously confirmed that the US, not Britain, would be the series' primary target, saying: 'If you're going to go after the b******s, you may as well go after the biggest b******s there are'.

I'd watch it.

Can't have class consciousness here in the US. No sir.

What an outrage, I was just about to turn on NBC.  Almost.

Also, I should point out, we're taking the word of one of the people involved with the show that NBC isn't showing it due to "nervousness" over the content. For all we know it NBC may not be showing it just because the show isn't very good*. I'm not entirely sure why NBC would be "nervous" about a show-no-one-would-have-known-or-cared-​about-if-they-did-show-it doing material one of their highest profile shows (SNL) already does

*Yes yes I know "Never stopped them before, har har"

Woah now, that would involve actually coming into contact with the article!

This has nothing to do with Trump, but if you dare moniker Mooschelle or Barry Hussein all hell will come down on your heads.

Satire must be based on reality, or it's not satire anymore. Is there any evidence that Biden is even remotely senile ?

You voted for the clown, then complain that it's a lot easier to make fun of him

I saw at least three different ads based on Biden accidentally saying that if he wins "your taxes will be raised, not cut."

So I guess the answer is "only if you resort to the flubs he's always had or his stuttering."
