Making a political mockumentary in 2016 can get pretty sticky.
Comedians Davram Stiefler and Jason Selvig, collectively known as The Good Liars, acted out repeatedly on the political campaign trail for Undecided: The Movie, now available on iTunes.
As you can see from this exclusive clip showing the duo at a
He didn't like that very much. Selvig says, "Trump rallies are nuts."
The stars of 'Undecided: The Movie' called Trump 'boring' from an event and were removed.
In May the duo attended Hillary Clinton and Trump rallies in the same day for the film. They found them to be completely different.
"There were empty airplane bottles of whiskey in the bathrooms at Trump rallies, riot police outside, and when you walk into the arena you can feel the heat from all the anger," says Selvig.

His colleague Stiefler agrees, saying, "I wish I could say people were civil at the Trump rallies but they weren’t. We disturbed many, many events on both sides of the aisle. I feel pretty comfortable in saying that the Trump rallies felt like a cocktail of ‘party’ and ‘war-zone’ whereas the rallies of every other candidate felt like gatherings of like-minded people."
The duo also were removed from a Hillary Clinton event for wearing "Settle for Hillary" t-shirts and standing right in the camera line. That moment actually was picked up by political websites at the time. That removal was very polite.
"Hillary’s people were the nicest out of all the handlers and security we encountered on the trail," says Selvig. "That said, these people that are working for her campaigns might end up with positions in the White House, so they are not enemies you really want to have."

The scariest campaign moment? That came when the duo stood up while serving as seat fillers during a Jeb Bush rally in Iowa and demanded to be paid for their time vocally.
Selvig says the were escorted out and "a woman with the campaign was cursing at us and demanding a police officer arrest us. She said one thing that scared us for a second: 'This will affect your future.' "
Not something you want to hear from a Bush family representative.
"It’s a little frightening when Jeb Bush’s people tell you that this moment will 'affect your future' while you’re being muscled out the back door," says Stiefler.
