 J-TV has done it again with a new Passover parody starring US President Donald Trump.

In the video, the Trump impersonator wishes “my fellow Americans and people of the world” a happy Passover and then goes on to tell the Passover story, “which Jared [Kushner] taught me.”

Kushner, a senior advisor the president and his son-in-law, is Jewish.

“On Passover, we commemorate the exodus from Egyptian slavery, which Jarrad taught me,” the president begins.

He goes on to explain how Jacob’s family came to “the beautiful Egypt, a good country, a great country” because there was a famine in Canaan. They set themselves up in the land of Goshen and achieve success. But after Joseph, who had contributed much to Pharaoh and Egyptian society, passes away, the new Pharaoh turns on the Jews and subject them to slavery.

“Alerted to a prophecy that the Israelites would be led to freedom by a boy yet to be born, the dopy pharaoh orders all newborn boys be cast into the Nile,” Trump continues. “An evil man, that I can tell you.”

But Moses is saved by the ingenuity of his mother Jochebed. Ultimately, when Moses grows up, he defends an Israelite against an Egyptian slave master, who he kills and then is forced to flee. But Moses does not stay away for long.

“One day Moses came upon a burning bush that was not consumed and God instructed him to go back and lead the Israelites out of Egypt,” said Trump and then describes how he did it.

“Moses went to pharaoh and said God is not happy with the way you treat the Jewish people – kind of like the way the fake news treats me, horrible,” said Trump, quickly running through the 10 plagues and the final decision by Pharaoh to let the people go.

The Jews cross the desert after the sea “. miraculously split apart” and reach Mount Sinai - “not the hospital” - where they receive the Torah.

“We love the Israelites,” concludes the Trump parody. “Right folks? Great people, amazing people, very tough, believe me.”

And then the short film ends.
