A parody advert mocking Donald Trump's response to the coronavirus and the many other problems currently facing his presidency is almost too accurate to be funny.

The clip, which is nearly four minutes long and contains a lot of swearing, is made by the Australian company Juice Media and uses many facts, figures and actual headlines (with a little bit of comedic license) to show how much the president has let down his people in the United States.

Warning: This video contains very strong language.

The ad has also been shared on Twitter and critics of the president can't get enough of it.

In a comment on YouTube, The Juice explained why they made the advert.

We've had so many Americans begging us to make an Honest Government Ad for their government. So we decided to give it a go. I hope we did your s**t government justice. It almost makes ours feel benign by comparison. Despite the levity, we're genuinely concerned about what's happening in your country and we hope you and your loved ones are keeping safe. I hope this doesn’t come across as “FoReIgN InTeRfeReNcE!” If it does, well… let’s call it even... the US Government has been interfering with our s**t here ever since 1975, when it helped to oust our Prime Minister, Gough Whitlam. But on a more serious note: even though we're all the way down here in Australia, the result of this election will impact everyone on earth. In terms of climate action alone, this could be the most important election of our lifetimes. So I figure it's one of those all hands on deck, let's lend a hand to our friends in the USA - kind of thing. Thanks to JamesFromTheInternet who contributed writing to this episode. It's awesome to collaborate with a local from the US and I hope we'll be able to bring you more of these together. I’ll include some sources and references in the video description for those who want them.
