America First, Switzerland Second; Tongue-In-Cheek Video Pokes Fun at Trump and Swiss

GENEVA — Deville, a late-night TV comedy show airing in the German-speaking region of Switzerland has produced an acidic, tongue-in-cheek video poking fun not only at Donald Trump but at “Swissisms” such as anti-EU sentiments, corrupt banking, infringed women’s rights, assisted suicide and racism.

Similar to sketches already produced in the Netherlands and Germany, the video parodies Trump’s “America First” speech comparing it to topics often ignored or considered taboo in Switzerland.

“We understand it is going to be America First, but, can we say, Switzerland Second? We don’t even want your money. We already have it.” Is one of several funny lines.

Deville Late Night”, hosted by Dominique Deville airs in SRF.
