Triumph the Insult Comedy Dog, a foul-mouthed puppet manned by comic Robert Smigel, visited some college campuses recently and microaggressed as many precious snowflake students as he could. Triumph has a long history of insulting people in specific and personal ways. Triumph’s previous targets include Star Wars fans, Bon Jovi fans, Westminster dog show participants, reality TV show personalities, and presidential candidates.
The most recent installment took Triumph to various college campuses so he could talk to young voters about their priorities during the 2016 election season.
“Trigger warning,” Triumph declares as he begins to interview some college students at the University of New Hampshire. “In this video there will be the clear depiction of a dog pretending to be interested in what a college student is saying.”
Triumph also attempted to show the male students in the room the proper way to address young women in 2016.
“May I hump your leg?” he asked one female student.
“No,” she replied.
“Please understand,” Triumph responded as he humped her leg, “I may look like a dog, but I identify as a shin guard.”
When the conversation turned to politics, Triumph asked one student if the U.S. government should break up the banks. When the student said he agreed that big banks should be broken up, Triumph asked him, “Well, then how are you going to access your parents’ money?”
“Even if there’s not much diversity on the stage tonight, there is diversity in the press,” Triumph noted as he walked through the section of the debate venue set aside for journalists covering the campaign.
“Just look around and you’ll see lightweights, enablers, propagandists, and people here for the free snacks.”
