TRUMP Z’NUFF … Johnny Monaco’s latest podcast includes a mock Chip Z’Nuff/Donald Trump presser as Z’ump


Johnny Monaco’s latest podcast includes a mock Chip Z’Nuff/Donald Trump presser as Z’ump


CHICAGO, Illinois — What can we say, but if you like a good laugh…then you might wanna tune into the latest Johnny Monaco podcast, episode #10 ‘SUMMER of LIES’.

Monaco is a creative genius and thensome. There are numerous highlights, and several slight backhanded comments on-going throughout the 57 miunte and 39 second gem of a recording.

To start the show Johnny’s doing a Chip Z’Nuff impersonation. The first several minutes is essentially a mock Chip Z’Nuff meets Donald Trump press conference which Monaco coins this character Z’ump.

These are all fun, and it seems that Monaco is doing all the voices.

The “cheers” sample of Chip’s actual voice being dropped in every 30 seconds is amazing.

At some point there is mention of a tour with the BulletBoys, and Z’ump then says; “I heard they got deported”. We’re pretty sure Marq Torien won’t laugh at that one regardless of whether it was a ‘joke’ or not.

There is a snipet or two about going out to a L.A. Guns show in the Chicago area. There is some general chit-chat and a little bit about their dysfunction comes up as well.

Monaco also tries to do a few Phil Lewis immitations and chats about the newer members Michael Grant (guitars) and Johnny Martin (bass). Monaco talks about going on a ‘mix date’ with Grant, who he then adds; “He’s Filipino”.

The section about Donnie Vie starts around the 19 minute mark and the cat sound effects will possibly make you piss yourself.

We’ll let you listen on, and we encourage it as Johnny is a pile of laughter, enjoy.
