Verify: Did girl in viral video insult President Trump?

Magnolia West High School football player Dustin Parmely died in a car crash just two weeks before graduation.

HOUSTON - Our Verify fact checkers looked into a video that spread like wildfire online.

The video appears to show a little girl telling the President of the United States he is a disgrace to the world. It got a lot of people fired up, but is it for real?

First, if you listen to the video, you can hear what sounds like a studio audience – and there’s good reason for that. We tracked down the original video from Comedy Central.

The clip is from a new series called “The President Show,” featuring an actor impersonating Donald Trump.

So, we can verify this is false.
