A year ago, he was a billionaire who wandered into the news here and there. Now, it seems, Donald Trump is everywhere — even in the return of the Tanner gang in Fuller House, an updated version of the 1990s TV classic, Full House.
On Thursday’s premier, it did not take the series long to show that times had changed.
“It is so unexpected, but seamlessly woven into the corny kitchen table conversation that you can almost miss it. It comes when D.J.’s son Max is trying to tell his family that he’s all grown up. ‘I already know all the bad words,’ he proclaims. ‘Dumb, booger, and Donald Trump.’ It’s pretty amazing and even warrants an applause from the laugh track,” wrote Karen Fratti on Romper.

“The camera pans to Candace Cameron Bure who shrugs and smiles with Bob Saget. It’s about as raunchy as this show will ever get. Until it gets even better: When Kimmy Gibler puts her bare feet up on the table, Max says they smell like Trump. Two shots at Trump in one scene,” she wrote.
Fratti called the Trump jokes “enough of a reason to watch the series,” while Bustle’s Allyson Koerner called the updated series “refreshing.”
“The original sitcom seemingly always tried to be politically correct and rarely went out of its comfort zone, especially when it came to possibly alienating or offending others,” Koerner wrote. “Well, that surely isn’t the case with Fuller House. It isn’t holding back and doesn’t seem to be afraid of pushing the boundaries. It sure is refreshing to see a somewhat newer and more modern version of the show that I couldn’t get enough back in the day. Now we just have to wait and see if Trump replies to the dig.”
