Hear Trump’s Tweets As Read By Gollum [VIDEO]

The Hill reports:

“Lord of the Rings” actor Andy Serkis read President Trump’s tweets in character as Gollum on “The Late Show” on Tuesday with Stephen Colbert.

Serkis brought Trump’s “fake news” tweets to life, channeling the fictional hobbit from “Lord of the Rings” after Colbert said he’d love to hear him read the tweets as one of his characters.

    Well at least they have finally been given some of the humanity that they were lacking in the original.

    • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

      Yep. And this quote about Trump from Clay Aiken in the Washington Post this morning about made me barf.

      “I imagine that in person if I saw him again today I would be charmed by him,” Aiken said. “Because he’s a very gracious person … he’s a nice guy.”

      Jesus Christ, Clay. Pay attention.

        Not a Clay Aiken fan, but the context was that Trump had no clue of the workings on the Aprentice
        “Trump Didn’t Even Decide Who Got Fired On ‘The Apprentice,’ Clay Aiken Says”

        • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

          That was the thrust of the article, but in this quote he is talking about what a nice guy Trump is *in the present*, and that is to ignore his awful behavior of the campaign and since becoming president. Nice guys don’t try to take health care away from millions, or undo all the good things Obama did because of a personal grudge against Obama. They don’t tear immigrant families apart. Nice guys don’t encourage violence, or call for locking up opponents. Assault women…I could go on, but you get my point.

            Yes, but I read it more as “well, you’ve gotta admit, Hitler was nice to his dog. (Until he poisoned her.)”

          • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

            But again, Clay was speaking in the present tense: “Trump IS nice” despite knowing the bad stuff we know about him.

          • Diogenes Onionpants

            I know–we aren’t disagreeing!

          • mr wonderful

            Got it. Well done.

      • Clay was only on the Apprentice because when he finally came out of the closet his fan base evaporated (because most of them were middle aged Republican women…being gay was okay so long as he stayed in the closet). Yes, he’s clueless. Those of us who watched his failed attempt to run for Congress already knew that.

        “He’s a very gracious person…he’s a nice guy [wielding a knife behind his back].”

    I love Andy Serkis. <3

    What is trump’s “precious”? Maybe Lolita — I mean Ivanka– trump?

  • Natty Enquirer

    Falsetto fry in an East London accent. I can do it for about 30 seconds before I lose my voice!

  • kcken

    That was so precious !

    🙂 Couldn’t resist!

    Dear Trump, your family and your supporters:

      …and you smell of elderberriiieeeesssss.

    It’s amazing that with all that money, Drumph can’t bring himself to hire someone to teach him how to tweet without sounding like a complete idiot. 🙂

      Wo-menses: bleeding out their whatevers.

      [God, that should have ended this almost 2 fucking YEARS ago! So depressing…]

  • Pip

    Still like his tweets in the voice of the Joker, it’s just so fitting. But this is amazingly on point too.

  • boobert

    Funny, glad I watched.

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    Remember the world before Twitter?

  • TheSeer

    This was amazing!

  • coram nobis

    His normal speaking voice is really quite profound. The voice impressions and acting on top of that — wow. In many ways the “Caesar” outtake is a good lesson in modern cinema.

    And it’s amazing how he can uncork Gollum after all these years, and on a moment’s notice. And how much nuance he got out of the word “sad”.

  • kladinvt

    That’s one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a long time!

  • KnownDonorDad

    The only other actor to come close to capturing Gollum was Brother Theodore, who based on interviews was, to put it kindly, eccentric.

    • JCF

      Colbert was on FIRE during those opening segments!

      Jr’s Lawyer (to Jr, locked in bathroom): “You’re not tweeting out those emails are you?”

      Jr: “No, I’m masturbating!”


  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Brilliant actor, not given anywhere near the recognition he deserves.

  • Ogre Magi
  • Gregory In Seattle

    I never thought anyone could out-do Mark Hamill reading 45’s tweets as The Joker.

    I was wrong.
