Trump Law & Order Candidate SVU Edition

Law & Order: SVU To Air Episode Based On Donald Trump Child Sex Abuse Case

We were all waiting for this. Law & Order: SVU has announced that they will be doing an episode based on Donald Trump’s child rape case — and it will air before the election.

The NBC show has often made episodes that are “ripped from the headlines,” and now they will take on Trump’s alleged rape of 13-year-old girl. The episode, titled “Unstoppable,” will feature a Trump-like character who will be played by Gary Cole (“Veep”). Variety described this character as a “wealthy and boorish man who makes a run for the White House.”

The storyline of the episode was inspired by the lawsuit filed by a woman, known only as “Jane Doe,” who has accused Donald Trump of raping her at the home of known child abuser Jeffery Epstein in the mid-1990s when she was only 13. A hearing on the case, which names both Trump and Epstein as defendants in the suit, is scheduled for December 16 in a New York court.

1. Unfortunately, it looks like they pulled it, again, but will air it after the election.

NBC’s “Law & Order: SVU,” which is noted for basing episodes on stories ripped from headlines, has shelved the Donald Trump-inspired episode called “Unstoppable.”

The episode which was originally scheduled to air Oct. 26 will now be seen sometime after the Nov. 8 election, sources close to the situation confirm.

The decision to reschedule was made Friday afternoon at the network level in light of the torrid atmosphere currently in the political arena.

3. Yea, but I pretty much expected this to happen

NBC has had enough hassle with Trump related situations.
