Trump is "already somewhat comical and broad, which can make Bad Lip Reading a bit less effective from where I’m sitting."

Says the creator of Bad Lip Reading to the NYT.
The more serious a person’s public persona, the better the results are when putting nonsense in their mouths. At least that’s how I feel from a creative standpoint.
The BLR guy (who doesn't reveal his name) preferred working with the footage of Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders:
Bernie, in particular, is such a distinctive character.... Hands down, Bernie Sanders is the king of gesticulation and provided so much good material. His mannerisms and speaking cadence were a dream to work with. I actually ended up basing an entire segment around the physical gestures he made while simply listening to Hillary Clinton talk; he wasn’t even speaking, he was just physically reacting to what she said, and it resulted in one of my personal favorite pieces from the election (“Time to Act”).

I wonder if he'd ever thought of reversing the Schlick with Trump- try setting the video to a serious oration. I'm not sure if it would work but it might be fun to try.

Haha, that was supposed to be "schtick" (sp?) not "Schlick". Autocorrect doesn't know from Yiddish, I guess.

Ann, have you see any of the Sassy Trump videos on youtube? They are pretty funny, especially the title "I was being sarcastic". I highly recommend them.

Bernie Sanders, advocating a political philosophy essentially identical to those which led to over 100,000,000 civilian deaths at the hands of socialist, totalitarian governments in the last century, amazingly is supported by today's youthful adults.

I'd say they're crazy, but perhaps they just want a genocidal dictatorship running the country.
