South Park makes entertainment more fun out of life. Their ideas in the stories for the sitcoms comes from a fresh and current issues and events within a span of six days. But recently, they are stunned by the result of the US presidential elections, which they seemed to predict Hilary Clinton's victory in of their episodes.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone, writer and animator for the entire show between each episode of South Park, works on a truly impressive timeline. In the recent episodes, one episode must be rewritten quickly to reflect the incoming President of the United States, Donald Trump. The series initially thought Hilary Clinton will win so they quickly and immediately revised the script before it will be aired.

However, per article posted in Esquire, this is not the only incident where there are some glitches in the animation. The first episode of Season 20 also had some catastrophic issues. System crashes and all the audio to "Member Berries" were lost but Parker and Stone sends it one hour before the show be aired to Comedy Central at 10p.m. on September 14.

Another incidence in 2008, where the show was amazingly delivered "About Last Night..." less than 24 hours after Barrack Obama won the presidential race.

The episode called "The Very First Lady Gentleman", which seemed to predict Clinton's victory, was changed and replaced with "Biggest Election Upset in the US History" aired last November 9.

According to GameNGuide, right now the new episode has been edited and it is called "Oh Jeez" in the episode trailer.

The teaser talks about the newly elected US president but none of the characters mentions Trump's name but instead quoted his favorite campaign line "Well, I don't know about you guys, but I sure am excited. America's going to be great again." Then, Randy Marsh confront his family if they are all excited too, but they answered negatively. And his daughter said, "This country is going to suck for four years", afterwards.

Later, towards the end of the trailer, Randy tells his daughter, "oh come on Shelly. We have learned that women can be anything except for president". Comedy Central spokesperson said in an interview the following day that Trump's victory came fast, their writers worked until date.

South Park is an American adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone in 1992 and 1995 for the Comedy Central television network. It later gone viral in the Internet, which ultimately leads to its production series. With matured audiences, the show has become infamous for its crude language and dark surreal humor that mocks a wide range of topics and thus, resulted to 275 episodes over the course of 20 seasons.
