Forrest Trump just keeps on running (for president).

Satirical British television show “Newzoids” mercilessly mocked Donald Trump over the weekend in a hilarious “Forrest Gump”-themed puppet/CGI sketch.

It gave Tom Hanks’ lovable fictional character a full Trump makeover for the clip, which first aired on the channel ITV on Saturday ― turning him into “a man everyone thought was a racist simpleton, who showed the world they were absolutely right.”

Poking fun at the GOP presidential nominee’s vow to build a wall between the United States and Mexico, they also explored his friendship with conservative “Brexit” movement leader Nigel Farage.

Check it out in the clip above. 

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
