Randy Rainbow Skewers Trump's Government Shutdown Over the Wall

Randy Rainbow

For his latest satirical video, Rainbow takes on Trump, the government shutdown, and the wall to the tune of South Pacific's "There Is Nothin' Like a Dame."

Satirist Randy Rainbow, one of The Advocate's 2018 People of the Year, is back with a new video skewering Donald Trump and his administration for holding out with the government shutdown that is hurting federal employees working without pay all because he wants a border wall.

Inserting himself into an interview with Mike Pence, Rainbow questions the motives behind the government shutdown to the tune of "There Is Nothin' Like a Dame" from South Pacific.

"He's got money in the bank, he's got spray tan on his face. He's got baseless facts and figures, which he figures please his base," Rainbow sings in "There Is Nothin' Like a Wall." "He's got gold at Mar-a-Lago and a ton of Adderall. What ain't he got? A border wall!"

Rainbow is a generally good-natured humorist, but he doesn't hold back on calling out Trump.

"He gets badgered, he gets booed. He gets heckled coast to coast. He gets valentines from Putin and advice from Hitler's ghost. He gets labeled irresponsible and inhuman and unfit," he sings.

"There is nothing whatsoever like a totally manufactured national emergency to distract everyone from what is actually on his mind, which is, you guessed it: Robert Mueller," Rainbow sings, savoring that last part with an elongated note.
