Lip-Syncing Trump-Impersonating Comedienne Sarah Cooper To Star In Netflix Special
Sarah Cooper is getting a Netflix special. She’s a comedian who uses her TikTok account to present parody videos where she mockingly lip-syncs to Donald Trump’s speeches, and she’s built up quite a following. Her videos are so popular that when Trump started talking about banning TikTok in the U.S., prominent political influencers and public figures joked that it was all because of Cooper’s videos.
A Netflix release says that show will be titled Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine, and will premiere in the fall.
…a variety special full of vignettes dealing with issues of politics, race, gender, class, and other light subjects. Sarah will be joined by a fantastic array of special guests who will participate in short interviews, sketches and more shenanigans.
The announcement touts Cooper’s viral videos mocking the president, which have millions of views, and notes her prior comedic script-writing, and her two books, 100 Tricks to Appear Smart in Meetings and How to be Successful Without Hurting Men’s Feelings.
Check out a few of Sarah Cooper’s viral lip-synching videos below.
Here’s “How To Person Man Woman Camera Tv” — which followed Trump’s speech in which he explained his mental acuity test.

Mark Hamill is among the many who’ve praised her skill.
Words can't express how much I love this woman.
I'm at the point where I close my eyes when the real #POTUS is on TV speaking & just picture @sarahcpr. It's really helped control my gag-reflex. https://t.co/EorXnCqAhl

Then there’s this one from Donald Trump’s press conference musing about possible COVID-19 cures, including light and disinfectant.
One thing that Donald Trump has been roundly mocked for is his repeated descriptions of low-flow water fixtures, and the recall of regulations that attempt to save water.
It’s true! I’m getting a Netflix special! And I couldn’t have done it without all your support, THANK YOU SO MUCH ❤️❤️❤️
