Comedian’s anti-Trump stunt backfires spectacularly
Comedian Conan O’Brien tried to rebut President Trump’s claim that Haiti was a “sh*thole” but the joke ended up backfiring on him after it was revealed O’Brien had merely staged his photos from inside a luxury tourist resort.
“#Haiti is truly a beautiful country,” tweeted O’Brien alongside a picture of him in the ocean sipping from a coconut.
The comedian’s intention was obviously to imply that the rest of the country was just as idyllic as the scene in the photograph.
However, it was soon revealed that O’Brien had taken the images from inside the Wahoo Bay Beach Resort, a luxury bubble at which rooms cost $254 dollars a night, a whopping sum when you consider that most Haitians make little over $400 a year.
After it was confirmed that O’Brien was trying to pass off a luxury resort as a true representation of the entire country, hilarity ensued as respondents began photo-shopping him into images of what Haiti really looks like.
