'Trump's Favorite Things' Parody Is Funny Because It's Horrifying

"Puppets at Fox News who dance on his strings, these are a few of his favorite things!"

It’s hard to keep up with the news regarding the Trump administration these days. Both because it’s constantly devastating and because there are more scandals in a day than most Presidents have in an entire term.

But if you’re in search of a quick and palatable round up of some of the nonsense Trump has done lately, this Sound of Music parody has you covered.

From tear-gassing migrants for seeking asylum to siding with Saudi Arabian kings, Randy Rainbow wants to make sure we know at least a few of Trump’s favorite things. Is it painful? Yes! Is it true? Also yes! But sometimes when things are horrifying, the only option left is to laugh, because otherwise you will sit down and cry until your body withers up and crumbles into dust.

If you aren’t familiar with Randy Rainbow, he’s got a penchant for political parodies, usually employing the melodies of showtunes for that sweet, sweet, extra-gay ‘oomph.’ His most popular video currently clocks in at around 1.8 million views, and converts Gilbert & Sullivan into a lyrical sprint about Trump being “A Very Stable Genius.”

Admittedly, mockery doesn’t do much towards getting the narcissist and his impressively unimpressive administration out of power, but it’s nice to laugh. Remember what laughing felt like?? Before 2016??? Some days it’s hard.

But we’ll stop there, because there’s only so much of Trump’s face a rational person can stand to look at in a single day.
