It’s the day of the Alabama Senate race, and passions are running high. As the entire country waits to see if Alabama trusts Donald Trump — a slurring, orange whale — over the nine women who have accused his preferred candidate, Roy Moore, of sexual assault, we’re all a little on edge. Thankfully, Randy Rainbow is here to sing our worries away. The magical unicorn of wokeness just shared a hilarious Sound of Music parody which hones in on the shocking hypocrisy of the Republican Party.
Rainbow — a sassy-sweet, side-eye-shooting, singing queer equivalent of Stephen Colbert — has made a name for himself as one of the Internet’s premiere political satirists. Always on time with a cute, musical criticism of Trump’s latest bullshit, Rainbow has easily ridden his Trump takedowns to virality. And his takedown of Roy Moore does not disappoint.
During an “interview” with a frazzled, fried Kellyanne Conway — a.k.a. “that 5’7″ bundle of bullshit” — Randy launches into a version of “Sixteen Going on Seventeen” that will have you howling. When Conway embarks on yet another inspiring one-woman battle against truth, Randy interrupts with:
“You wait Kellyanne, with your ashy knees / It’s time that you surrender / You’re backing a man who admits that he’s / a bonafide sex offender.”
He then goes on to blithely list the victims of Roy Moore’s predation and pedophilia:
“She was sixteen going on seventeen / Roy Moore was 32 / Flagrantly lusting, he’s just disgusting / And frankly so are you.”
After a few reprises (“She was seventeen going on eighteen / when she went out with Moore,” etc.), Randy proceeds to call out Republican establishment leaders who have justified Moore’s behavior, before firmly landing on Trump and the entire Republican party:
“[Trump] might get one seat in the Senate, history sure repeats / but you’re still all criminal and unethical hypocrites/ Why not have several seats?”
