RIP: Trevor Moore, Satirist of Assassination

Comedian Trevor Moore has died at age 41. As this bit shows, Moore was a satirist of assassination, depicting ominous events as buffoonery, to make fun of the powerful and our media obsessions.

Bush was in Dallas on November 22, 1963 and he had a friendly cooperative relationship with the CIA. But it’s not accurate to say Bush was “working for the CIA” that day.
