Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian meddling in the 2016 election dropped just a few days ago, and Randy Rainbow is already out with a new political parody song. His latest takes aim at the Mueller report and Donald Trump's response to it. Titled "The Mueller Blues" and set to the tune of "The God-Why-Don't-You-Love-Me Blues" from Stephen Sondheim's Follies, the song bemoans the fact that there were no indictments for some of the usual suspects in the administration like Trump himself, daughter Ivanka Trump, and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
"Repeatedly he stated, No collusion. I guess that he was right. Is he exonerated? Technically, not quite," Rainbow sings. "His comments were off-color. He'd constantly deny and slander Mr. Mueller. Now look who's his favorite guy. He's got those maybe if I haven't been so shady in the first place blues."
Later, Rainbow inserts himself into an interview with Sanders, taking umbrage at the White House's categorization of Mueller's report as a total exoneration.
"It's a great day to be an American. Donald Trump, Jussie Smollett, you in that pink blouse," he says. "People are getting away with murder around here."
