#EndorseThis: Sarah Cooper Brings Her Act To The DNC -- And Kills

Did you skip the final evening telecast of the Democratic National Convention? Did you fear boredom or even embarrassment? That wasn't how things turned out at all. It was more like a virtual miracle.

Julia Louis-Dreyfuss ruled, Joe Biden killed his speech of a lifetime, and a courageous kid with a stutter named Brayden Harrington won the entire nation (except Trump, who mocks people with disabilities).

But even if you watched, you might have missed the funniest moment – when our idol Sarah Cooper showed up. She did her inimitable number on Trump – it could have been called "How to mail ballot" – and then dropped character to talk about voting rights.

You can go back to see the rest of the convention, but you must watch her right now.



#EndorseThis: Sarah Cooper And Lincoln Project Troll Trump On Twitter

Today's hilarious video is old but new again, rediscovered thanks to Sarah Cooper (and retweeted by those scamps at the Lincoln Project). As Sarah herself put it when she first posted this old Saturday Night Live clip: "Donald Trump reminds of this Fred Armisen character who can't finish a single sentence." We get the resemblance, although Armisen's goofy guy is far more benign than the current president. (Years later Trump posted a whiny tweet complaining about Armisen mocking him.)

As the Lincoln Project noted, "Omg." Enjoy.



#EndorseThis: Sarah Cooper Answers Trump's Attack On TikTok

We'll keep this very brief, because Sarah Cooper did. She posts her artful lip-sync videos on TikTok, which Trump is now proposing to ban (because of her?) or otherwise sanction.

"How to tick tock" is super-short, but you'll get the idea.


#EndorseThis: Sarah Cooper Scores On Trump Mental Test

When that videotape of Donald Trump babbling nonsense about his cognitive exam emerged, everybody's first thought was "Sarah Cooper needs to do this."

Everybody included Sarah Cooper, who knew exactly what to do with this material in just over 100 seconds: "How to person woman man camera TV."

Need we say anything more? Not really.
