Randy Rainbow, the Jewish comedian and singer whose viral videos have become a kind of soundtrack for the Trump years, released one final parody this week to send Trump on his way out of the Oval Office.
The song “Seasons of Trump,” spoofs “Seasons of Love” the hit song from Jonathan Larson’s musical “Rent.”
Rainbow starts in a chorus of himself, “Two million, a hundred two thousand, four hundred minutes, with just one president so unhinged and unfit. How do you measure four years of this s—?”
“In scandals, impeachments, in porn stars, in Scaramuccis, in rallies, in insurrections and flies,” he sings on.
Continuing to lambast some of the hallmarks of the Trump years, Rainbow takes on Twitter next, “Two million, a hundred two thousand falsehoods he tweeted, basically 14,976 times he didn’t have a plan. 11,780 votes he said he needed, how do you measure four years with this orange garbage can?”
The answer, “In Spicers, in Conways, in Sanders, in McEnanies, in fake news, pee tapes, alternative facts. In one thousand four hundred sixty days, but who’s counting? Who could keep track of all the treacherous acts?”
Two of Rainbow’s other most memorable parodies were based on the song “Tradition” from “Fiddler on the Roof.” The two parodies called “Distraction” and “Sedition’ took on two different major events of the Trump years, Trump pushing the debunked Obama-gate conspiracy theory and Trump’s incitement of the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6th.
