Triumph the Insult Comic Dog will provide his take on the 2016 presidential election in a special that will premiere this Thursday, Aug. 11, on Hulu.
“Triumph The Insult Comic Dog Summer Election Special 2016” will feature the famed puppet covering the major party conventions in Cleveland and Philadelphia.
Deadline.com notes that Triumph and his handler, Robert Smigel, talked about the special this week at TCA.
“During that Q&A, Smigel said Triumph discovered a Roger Ailes look-alike, who was so convincing he decided to take him to the RNC,” Deadline reports. The report quotes Smigel saying that accompanied by Fake Ailes, Triumph “gained more access to areas I wasn’t supposed to go. … I was like, ‘I’m with Roger Ailes’ and they would literally let me in. He’s the gift that keeps on giving.”
