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.

Vaughn Meader, forgotten comic of the Kennedy years.


Comedian Vaughn Meader shot to fame in early 1962 with his spot-on but affectionate send-ups of President Kennedy and his family. His LP record The First Family won a Grammy in 1963. When JFK was killed in Dallas, Meader was shattered and his career was over. He died in obscurity in 2004. He lives on in the heaven known as YouTube.
