Trump's TBT: Making a Fool of Himself With Megan Mullally

Green Acres

To promote the signing of a farm bill, Trump tweeted a 13-year-old Emmy skit of him and the Will & Grace star.

Donald Trump has tried everything to win the country's favor -- tax cuts, xenophobia, lies. Now he's attempting humor by tweeting out a #TBT video of him and Megan Mullally performing a Green Acres-inspired skit at the 2005 Emmys.

Besides the throw-back Thursday reference, the video was a reference to his signing of a farm bill that grants $867 billion to agricultural programs over the next decade.

Back in 2005 -- the year Trump bragged on an open mic about sexual assault -- the then-Apprentice star appeared in an Emmys skit with Mullally, a fellow NBC personality. While Mullally looked her usual glamorous self -- in the skit she was playing the society matron role Eva Gabor personified in the 1960s sitcom -- Trump looked ridiculous, carrying a pitchfork and wearing overalls and a straw hat as he belted Green Acres' theme out of tune.

"It wasn't something I would even normally do, because I think those things are stupid," Mullally said of the skit in an interview withTheWrap. "It was at the height of the popularity of The Apprentice. Everybody was going, 'You're fired.' Everybody was doing that, it was kind of in the mass consciousness."
