Randy Rainbow pays homage to Dolly Parton in his latest takedown of Donald Trump, a parody of “9 to 5” titled “Forty-Five!”

The video for the song opens with Rainbow doing a mock interview of Trump. Rainbow asks the presumptive Republican presidential nominee about his potential running mates and then plays the words Trump used to demonize immigrants: “They come from prisons, many of them. They come from mental institutions and insane asylums, like Silence of the Lambs. Hannibal Lecter, I wonder if he’s one of them.”

Rainbow then segues to Trump’s hush-money trial and goes into the song: “Slurrin’ all his words while he’s sweatin’ and a-twitchin’ / Fartin’, burpin’, kvetchin’, and bitchin’ / And tryna get his charges all dismissed / I don’t mean to vent on your every violation / Lots of presidents have screwed up the nation / But guess who’s first on the ‘worst of all time list / Number forty-five!” He goes on to call Trump “a slimy little cretin” who “spends his life just a-lyin’ and a cheatin’.”

He also throws some shade at the Republican politicians who showed up at the Manhattan courthouse to support Trump, including Speaker of the House Mike Johnson and former presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy, and other Trump partisans, such as U.S. Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Gaetz. Trump is “glorified by each sycophant and coddler,” Rainbow sings.

There’s even more, as Rainbow reminds us that Trump will “drag us back to the Stone Age if we let him,” so “we better not make him number forty-seven.” And he theorizes that Trump is compensating for an anatomical deficiency. It’s all hilarious.
