#EndorseThis: Randy Rainbow Trolls Trump's 'Distraction'

Broadway is shut down for now, but we still have Randy Rainbow, the genius parodist who re-purposes musical classics for our political moment.

A keen observer of Trump, Rainbow's latest is "Distraction" – a fabulous takeoff from Fiddler on the Roof's "Tradition." As always, he stars as lead and chorus in a production that hilariously exposes how the president constantly aims to blame others, principally Barack Obama, for his own tragic failure.

How does Randy Rainbow make us guffaw in the midst of national catastrophe?

#EndorseThis: Randy Rainbow Warbles 'A Spoonful Of Clorox'

"A Spoonful of Clorox" might seem almost too easy a song parody of Donald Trump's latest stunning gaffe – but Randy Rainbow rose to this moment of unbelievable madness with his usual creative genius. (Yes, he's the true stable genius, not that idiot in the White House.)

That's why this video is nearing four million views within days of its release. The only worry here, aside from laughing yourself to death, is that the Trump cultists will take this seriously, like the nimrods who have been calling New York's Poison Control Center to find out whether they should follow the president's suggestion.

#EndorseThis: Randy Rainbow’s Satirical Paean To Social Distancing

Staying home has inspired new creativity and productivity among many artists – and Randy Rainbow exemplifies the moment. He has already produced a new video!

Social Distance opens with Rainbow’s alter ego TV correspondent interviewing Mike Pence about the pandemic. But then he swings into a clever paean to social distancing, true patriotism, human solidarity, and home manicures in this exceptionally difficult time.

Somehow he makes it all funny, especially in the closing moment as Pence nods to the final stanza of blunt advice.

#EndorseThis: Randy Rainbow Presents “Coronavirus Lament”

 Timely as ever, Randy Rainbow releases a new parody perfectly attuned to our dystopian moment. Set to the tune of Adelaide’s Lament from Guys and Dolls – “a person can develop a cold” — The Coronavirus Lament depicts the frustrations and fears of daily life in a pandemic, while noting just how much worse Trump and his coterie of boobs have made it.

Unsurprisingly, he takes special interest in Rainbow nemesis Mike Pence, the gay-negative vice president named to head Trump’s Covid-19 task force. With an eye on the vice president, he warbles:

In other words

Just from kissing Trump’s ass by indulging his ego trips,

A person can develop chapped lips.
