16 Times South Park Got Very Topical

South Park is unique among animated series in that the production schedule is so rapid it allows creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone to spoof current events mere days or even hours after the occur. That’s led to some incredibly topical episodes over the years, with the show targeting Presidential elections, celebrity scandals and various other hot news items. That trend has certainly continued this year. South Park’s 20th season has been busy poking fun at the latest Presidential race, culminating in this week’s episode, “Oh, Jeez,” wherein Mr. Garrison found himself beating out Hillary Clinton in a bitterly contested election. We figured now would be a perfect time to look back at some of the other times South Park has delivered timely, insightful political commentary.
