I’m very excited. My wife and I are going to see Randy Rainbow tonight.

Who?

Randy Rainbow.

Who’s Randy Rainbow?

I’m so glad you asked. Randy Rainbow is an American comedian and singer, best known for his videos published on YouTube, in which he spoofs interviews with famous figures and parodies musical numbers, often with a political focus.79BEB09B-A461-4B88-89EB-CA909DE3BFAB.pngTo be honest, up until recently, I wasn’t familiar with Mr. Rainbow. He started off his “career” conducting mock interviews with politicians and celebrities. But he eventually showed off his singing abilities in parody music videos based on Broadway tunes and pop hits. And best of all, Randy Rainbow has taken a particularly keen interest in President Trump and his administration.

And that’s how I first heard about him, because you know what a fan I am of Donald Trump.

Randy Rainbow is like a political “Weird Al” Yankovic. He has a versatile singing voice and has demonstrated a talent for writing hilarious — and biting lyricist. And his parody songs are guaranteed to make you laugh. Well, unless you are a Trump supporter.

I’m attaching two of Rainbow’s parade musical videos. Judge for yourself.

    How do you find TIME to watch this stuff? I barely have time to write a few pieces, take a few pictures, and fit in a shower and maybe some sleep. You know, I wrote that redacted piece because of a comment someone wrote on one of your pieces, that she hoped someone would write a summary of the report. Europeans aren’t going to read it because they don’t have easy access to it AND they have problems of their own. Not to mention the language is pretty high level English for anyone who isn’t fluent and for a lot of people who ARE fluent, it’s still a tough read.

    But this is the kind of thing I’m good at. Years of doing it professionally — when I snap my professional hat on, I can get through a LOT of material very quickly. Most of the time, I’m not in that frame of mind. I’m still of the opinion that I’m RETIRED — and that means I don’t have to work professionally at home. It’s nice, though, that sometimes I can put that head back on and make it work. It reassures me that I’m not senile. Yet.

      “How do you find TIME to watch this stuff?” I have to watch stuff like that…and Stephen Colbert, John Oliver, Samantha Bee, and Trevor Noah in order to maintain some level of sanity in the otherwise chaotic insanity. Sometime I just have to laugh. And I reblogged your post because you did a great job taking something complex and boiling it down to its essence.
