Ventriloquist Terry Fator has found enormous success since he won “America’s Got Talent” back in 2007, and has had a headlining Vegas show at the Mirage for 11 years. In all that time he’s never been asked to change his act in any way, until now. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the Mirage has asked him to cut the Trump puppet from his routine.
“It was kind of one of those things where the Mirage came to me, and they have never told me what to do, ever. But they asked politely, and when they ask politely, I do it,” Fator told the Review-Journal. “We have a good relationship. It’s a give and take. I’m not a diva. I’m not going to go off and say, ‘Screw you’ when they ask me to do something. But they said, ‘This political season is very, very, very rough and it’s going to get nastier. Would you mind?’ I said, ‘Fine, I’ll do it.’”
The Trump puppet has been a part of his routine for over three years. Here’s a clip from the routine from just under a month after Trump took office. MORE
