The South Park team was experiencing a last-minute hysteria on Tuesday night, as surprisingly disturbed as the rest of the country and other country by the fact that Hillary Clinton failed to win an Electoral victory in the presidential election. Comedy Central had earlier teased Wednesday's new episode, then titled "The Very First Gentleman," with a clip of PC Principal that evidently called the election in Clinton's favor. In the short time amidst that clip's debut and the episode's debut, the title was immediately changed to "Oh Jeez" to reflect the victory of Giant Douche.

South Park Forced To Rewrite An Episode After "Giant Douche" Wins Election

"The people have spoken," Mr. "Giant Douche" Garrison said in his acceptance speech, as floored voters were seen choosing from a variety of responses including speechlessness and immediate suicide. "Just as J.J. Abrams did with Star Wars, I will make this country great again. All my efforts the past week have paid off and now let's begin fucking them all to death!"

Ahead of the outset of their 20th season, creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone spoke with the Daily Beast and others about their plots for the election. "We were like, fuck him, we don't want to give him the satisfaction," Stone said during a Paley Center panel discussion on their decision to use Mr. Garrison as a "stand-in" for the President-elect. "Good political satire has a point," Stone added later in the discussion. "And for us, it would be such a sacrilege -South Park is the most important thing."

Back in 2008, on the twelfth series "About Last Night..." aired less than 24 hours after Barack Obama won the election. It nailed it "right"! In that episode, Obama and John McCain are portrayed as a group of jewel thieves who have cooked the election, creating a tornado of a scrap across the country.
