Not enough people talk about the good the president is doing—like providing abundant comic fodder for a hilarious experiential activation by Comedy Central. The network’s Donald J. Trump Presidential Library was so clever and on point, it landed the Comedy Central the coveted Experiential Brand of the Year honor in our first-ever Adweek Experiential Awards and helped propel Emily Albertson to the Rising Star award. All hail.
