10 Times Randy Rainbow Slayed the Election

The Best of Randy Rainbow's Election Coverage

From his hilariously edited videos to his satirical reimaginings of show tunes, Randy Rainbow has been a ray of light in a stormy election.

Randy Rainbow has kept us sane this election cycle with his perfect comedic mashups of gay culture, musicals, and politics. From his faux interviews of political pundits to his musical-inspired parodies of key moments in the campaigns, he has been a true highlight of the whole democratic process. As America gets ready to vote tomorrow, take a look back at all the times he made this nightmare election something we could all laugh about.

Randy bid farewell one by one to the Republican candidates as they ended their bids to the White House, each time with a new song to the tune of "Beauty School Dropout" from Grease. In the final installment, he takes on Ted Cruz and all of his wife-elbowing, New-York-offending, booger-eating gaffes. Plus he manages to rhyme "Maury Povich" with "no, bitch."

Randy sat down with Donald Trump himself and asked the hard-hitting questions about the Republican's relationship with Vladimir Putin. Spoiler: Have Trump and Putin made out? "Maybe once."

In his Music Man parody, "Ya Got Trump Trouble," Randy starts to grapple with the actual reality that Trump might be a real problem for America. "How's he gonna make America great?" he sings. "And specifically when is the time to which we're so fondly harking back?" He also takes a moment to appreciate "silver daddy" Mike Pence's backside. "Dump with a capital D and that rhymes with T and that stands for Trump." Brilliant.

Randy interviewed Michael Cohen of "Says who?" fame, giving Cohen even more opportunities to employ his embarrassing catchphrase.

The next Trump surrogate to get Randy Rainbow-ed was Marco Gutierrez, founder of Latinos for Trump. He memorably said that if we elect Hillary there'll be a taco truck on every corner. "You may also know him as cofounder of many of its sister organizations, including Jewish Mothers for Adolf and Dalmatians for Cruella," Randy deadpanned.

When Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson had his chances-shattering "Aleppo moment," Randy was there to ask him all the tough follow-up questions and make him play a round of "political Jeopardy!" which is exactly where Johnson found himself after the revelation that he doesn't know anything about world politics.

In his most popular video to date, Randy moderates the first presidential debate, seizing on Trump's use of the word "braggadocious" and unleashing a flurry of incredible rhymes to the tune of "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" from Mary Poppins. Even if you've seen this before,, the video is worth watching again.

Randy got to sit down with a wannabe first lady, Melania Trump, to ask her about her husband's campaign and penchant for genital grabbing. When Trump complained, "They accused me of doing stuff that I never did in my life," Randy responded, "Like what? Reading? Working? Properly conjugating a verb?"

After Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton "such a nasty woman" and a "puppet" during the third debate, Randy had no choice but to launch into song again, this time parodying "The Lonely Goatherd" from The Sound of Music.

With only two days left until the election is over, Randy made a final heartfelt, funny, and bittersweet plea to Americans to remember that "Trump/Pence is bad," to the tune of "Feed the Birds" from Mary Poppins, marking his third Julie Andrews cover since the first debate. Randy's now done everything he can to help in this election. Now it's up to the voters! Don't let us down, America!
