Sarah Cooper, the social media star who has a massive following on Twitter and TikTok for her Trump impersonations, was one of the speakers at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) on August 20. For the uninitiated, Cooper is a New York-based writer and comedian and has made several videos that savagely parody some of President Trump's most controversial comments — by letting his own words do the talking. In the viral clips, Cooper has been seen lip-syncing to audio snippets of Trump's speeches and media appearances, adding only facial expressions and gestures to highlight the absurdity of his comments in the video.

August 20 was also no different. After a lip-syncing snippet on Trump’s speech about mail-in voting, she said, “Let me put this in my own words. I’ve heard Donald Trump say some pretty unhinged things. I’ve heard them over and over and over again. But nothing is more dangerous to our democracy than his attacks on mail-in voting in the middle of a pandemic.” She added, “Here’s the truth. Donald Trump doesn’t want any of us to vote because he knows he can’t win fair and square. So, whether you plan to vote by mail or in person –wearing your mask – it is your vote and it’s your right. Don’t let Donald Trump take that away from you.”

As reported by NBC, Cooper’s a little more than a minute speech was featured during a segment that also had the secretaries of state in California and Michigan as well as voters who were in favor of voting by mail critiquing Trump’s attacks on the process.

Twitterati had mixed reactions to the comedian’s speech. One user said, "Sarah Cooper will singlehandedly bring Trump down more than any other American. The best humor comes from sadness and tragedy and Cooper nails Trump every time. Stop being so whiny."



 

 

Another stated, "Should have given Sarah Cooper more time - watch @realDonaldTrump have yet another meltdown."



 

 

One user questioned, "Why did Sarah Cooper, Mike Bloomberg, and the Curry’s get more air time than AOC, an actual sitting Congresswoman (the youngest ever elected), and the most popular Congressmember with the youngest generations??? #DemConvention."



 

 

Another commented, "I don’t think Sarah Cooper deserved that much time if any at all. There are a lot more voices in the Democraticverse that deserve more time or to be given a voice. #DemConvention."



 

 

One user said, "That upsets me. Sarah Cooper should have gotten more time."



 

 

One user said, "I love Sarah Cooper’s videos. She amplifies the ridiculousness of what he’s saying. She’s also generally hilarious, has been working for a long time before she went viral with the lip syncs... including publishing more than one book so it’s a bit late late to worry about a deal."



 

 

Another stated, "Am I the only person who is utterly perplexed by Sarah Cooper? She's seems charismatic enough, but I find nothing funny about lip syncing to Donald Trump. I'm baffled that people find it amusing. Am I just a curmudgeon."



 

 

Cooper has recently landed herself in a Netflix comedy special, 'Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine'. And now, according to a recent Forbes report, CBS announced that a new show will be developed based on her satirical book 'How to Be Successful Without Hurting Men’s Feelings'.
