“There’s no airtime for this orange (person),” Glazer told USA Today in a new interview. “We bleep his name the whole season.”
Glazer went on to reveal that the upcoming season is “deeply rooted in this time” and was heavily influenced by the election.
“We wrote being like, ‘Here we go! Hillary for president!'” Glazer said, but she noted that after “this game-show host became president of our country, we rewrote a lot.”
Jacobson and Glazer were big supporters of Clinton. The former presidential candidate even made a cameo during Season 3 of Broad City.
On Inauguration Day, Comedy Central released a Hack Into Broad City” episode, where Jacobson and Glazer discuss their fear of the new administration.
In the new trailer for Season 4, which was released last week, Glazer is heard saying Trump’s name. “F*** you Trump! I’m going back in,” she says. Although fans only hear the first word bleeped out in the sentence in the trailer, fans of the hit comedy show can expect to hear both words bleeped out when the show airs in late August.
Some fans of the show think bleeping out Trump’s name is a “childlike reaction.”
I'm a Broad City fan but I think bleeping Trump's name represents the childlike reaction both sides have exhibited since his being elected.

As a huge fan of both Donald Trump and Broad City, this is extremely troubling.

I didn't vote for him and even I think this is beyond childish & stupid. How disappointing….If this was done to Obama we'd have a fit!

Other people on Twitter are questioning what Trump will think about the news.
Man just imagine how pissed Trump will be when he sits down to binge watch Broad City and finds out they bleeped his name out
