Donald Trump did it again – and he didn’t have to open his mouth.

Three cheerleaders (of a sort) stole the spotlight from the presidential candidate with a song about “Ameritude,” opening for him at a rally Wednesday in Pensacola, Florida.

(“Ameritude” is what “President Trump” embodies.)

Featuring dubious patriotic phrases like “our colors don’t run,” this red, white and blue jingoistic junk seems as though it could been written by Trump himself. Its opening line — “Cowardice – Are you serious?” sounds like the sort of thing that would come out of Trump’s mouth.

The ditty takes Americana to its most pandering core, with the youngest performer intermittently shouting “USA!” and “C’mon boys, take ‘em down!” in between lines like “But we have to stand up tall and answer freedom’s call.”

It’s a must-see, in the most horrific fashion.

Even Trump’s audience isn’t buying it. They clap out of obligation, although most look bored in their “Make America Great Again” hats and t-shirts. Trump may have stopped paying people to show up at his rallies now that people are coming for the spectacle, but that doesn’t mean they found his show worth the time.

The video, uploaded by Fox 10 in Phoenix, also features the lamest jump ever recorded in front of a live audience:
