Raindy Rainbow Mocks Desantis In "Gay" Parody

Ater Florida governor-- and low-rent Donald Trump-- Ron DeSantis officially signed the christofascist “Don’t Say Gay” bill into law, LGBTQ critics have been out in full force condemning both him and the state government for passing such blatantly homophobic legislation. Disney, for example, took a huge stand against the vile, right-wing hate and has vowed to fight to appeal the disgusting law

Comedian Randy Rainbow had some choice words for DeSantis in his latest parody in which Rainbow refused to stop saying “gay” so much, that he even titled the video “Gay!”

Rainbow launched into his parody — set to the tune of “Shy” by Mary Rodgers from her 1959 musical Once Upon a Mattress — and asserts his own gayness throughout the song, directly flying in the face of the “Don’t Say Gay” bill’s moniker.

It’s a race that has some Democratic voters scratching their heads: a young, progressive primary challenger versus a pro-life, conservative Democrat who received an A-rating from the NRA. The primary race between one of the most conservative Democrats in the House, Representative Henry Cuellar, and Jessica Cisneros has become a lightning rod within the Democratic Party.

Cuellar declared victory, but as of Wednesday morning, major media outlets have said the race is too close to call. He is just a couple hundred votes ahead of his Cisneros in Texas' 28th Congressional District primary. When neither candidate won a majority in the March 1 primary, the two highest vote-getters faced each other in Tuesday's run-off election.
