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.

Moore is correct that George H.W. Bush was social friends with the family of John Hinckley, the man who shot and wounded President Ronald Reagan in 1981. As Moore says in one of this thought bubbles, “Awkward!”

Moore makes one factual mistake. George H. 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. He was not employed by the CIA at the time.

Also: there’s no evidence that Bush was complicit or involved in Kennedy’s assassination.

  1. “The substance of the information was orally furnished by George Bush of the Central Intelligence Agency.”

    Hoover was such a contrarian.
