Make “Your Momma” Great Again

Make “Your Momma” Great Again: With the coming of The Donald, many here have pointed to the horror that a Mortada Mansour presidency would be. The profane Zamalek chairman, public buffoon, former MP, and proud peeping tom has actually run for the presidency twice, backing out in 2014 because he dreamed that President Abdel Fattah El Sisi should be head of state. Back during his first run, Egyptian trolls (in our book, the most creative people in the world) made an amazing campaign video (watch; runtime: 0:33) for The Mortadel, which splices him yelling his catchphrase “Omak” (Your Momma) into Afaf Rady’s classic anthem “Egypt Is My Mother.”
