Critical Reception[]

AV Club gave "Douche and a Danish" a "B" rating saying: "At a certain point though, the election became so highly scrutinized that, if the show was going to continue to successfully skewer it, Parker and Stone had to start getting more specific. The trajectory of their Trump surrogate had to more closely match that of The Donald himself. That comes to a head in “Douche And A Danish,” an episode broadcasted literally smack-dab in the middle of the final presidential debate between Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Parker and Stone wisely don’t try to predict the outcome of the debate. They don’t even depict the debate at all, at least not in any kind of official capacity. But via one of Garrison’s rallies, they do attempt to capture the current temperature of the Trump campaign and the audience on both sides: how he got to where he is, how people are reacting to him now, and the hypocrisy of some of his biggest supporters and detractors."[2]

IGN gave "Douche and a Danish" a "8.4" rating saying: "More than ever, South Park has become razor-focused on continuity and slowly building its storylines from one week to the next. While it's frustrating that we probably won't be getting any standalone episodes in the vein of "Tweek x Craig" this year, the continuity-driven approach is really starting to pay off as the various threads come together. The show's biggest concern now should be finding something better for Cartman to do."[3]
