In their new web video “Inauguration Uncensored,” in which the only word that’s censored is the word “Trump,” Abbi is stuck in an elevator on election day while Ilana is holed up in her apartment prepared for the worst. Knowing that they won’t be next to each other when Trump is sworn in, they talk over FaceTime and share their fury and fear. When they finally get the push notification informing them that Trump is officially President, they launch into dual tirades of insults at both Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. Watch the video below.

The series was developed from Jacobson and Glazer’s web series of the same name, which was independently produced from 2009 to 2011. The series began airing in 2014 and has received widespread critical acclaim as well as five Critics’ Choice Television Award nominations. It’s executive produced by Amy Poehler.
