Randy Rainbow: COVID-19 and Trump Both Make You Sick

Rainbow

"The Coronavirus Lament" squeezes some laughs from an increasingly serious situation.

Out comedian Randy Rainbow successfully made a spoof video on the Trump administration's terrible response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The tricky maneuver involved poking fun at the president and vice president's inept attempts at handling the pandemic -- set to the tune of "Adelaide's Lament" from the Broadway musical Guys and Dolls. Trump's early claim that COVID-19 was a "Democratic hoax" is skewered, as is Pence's penchant for praying the pain away:

"He can pray every day until the gay goes away, hey it's worth a shot. He can climate deny until the oceans are dry and the Earth gets hot. But if praying that deadly diseases don't spread is the best he's got, some persons could develop a cold."

The nonstop media coverage also gets knocked by Rainbow, while he pokes fun at the cultural insistence everyone wash their hands until they're raw.

"Lock yourself in your bathroom, scrub 'til your tendons show. But don't touch your hands, the faucet, the soap, or your face!"
