Randy Rainbow's "If You Ever Got Impeached" Is His Latest Brilliance in Show Tune Political Parody

Randy Rainbow's parody songs on the Trump administration are awesome
His latest, the one that went the most viral is "If You Ever Got Impeached."
If you're a Donald Trump fan, you might as well move along to the next post, nothing to see here, you don't want to be offended.

Those of you who aren't such ardent fans of the president might like the video at the bottom of this post.

It's a little strange but brilliant.

Randy Rainbow has a YouTube page in which he gaily parodies famous old songs. He's got more than a bit of Broadway in him, and he uses these skills to great comic effect.

Each video starts off with Randy pretending to be one of those awful cable news reporters doing interviews, then he breaks into song. Before you start watching any of these awesome videos, do know they're definitely NSFW.

His latest effort is a takeoff on the song "If I Only Had A Brain" from The Wizard of Oz.

He does have a great voice, in addition to the comedy.

Before we get into that, he's got other gems you might check out. "Omarosa!" about Trump's former reality star performer and aide, is set to the music of "Oklahoma!" Another one, involving Rudy Guiliani, is "Rudy And the Beast," set to "Beauty And The Beast."  From last fall, there's a performance called "How Do You Solve A Problem Like Korea," which of course if from the "Sound Of Music."

Perhaps his song "Yes, We Have No Steve Bannon" is my favorite. Over the top, for sure, but awesome. There's a bonus reggae track in there in which Randy Rainbow comforts Bannon bh singing "Everything's Going to Be Alt-Right." Spoiler Alert: At the end of the video Randy, playing a fruit salesman says, "Can I interest you in a rotten orange with thin skin and no taste?"

There's many more Randy Rainbow videos to check out as well. This guy is brilliant!

By the way, I also absolutely love Randy's reading glasses.

Here, the performance is "If You Ever Got Impeached." It starts off as a bizarro world effort as a news interview with Trump, and then it goes from there. Worth the watch for some of us, at least:
