Liberal Redneck: The Truth About Trump [VIDEO]

YouTube’s viral Liberal Redneck (a real-life comedian named Trae Crowder) is back, this time with a comparatively serious take on Donald Trump. As before, I won’t give away the best lines with a recap. Just watch below.

  • bryan

    ‘Run that burn under a cold tap, and saddle back up’ #Hillyes

    • Rebecca Gardner

      We both seemed to like that line. 🙂

    • Cackalaquiano

      Thanks! Since my lovely spouse is blasting dance music while I’m trying to take in some Trae, I didn’t catch that line!

  • kirtanloorii

    Yeah, this is pretty much what we have all known for well over a year now. (no offense to him)

  • Rebecca Gardner

    “So you need to run the Bern under a cold tap and saddle backup baby, cause we ain’t outta da woods yet.”

    Amen Trae!

    • BockMcMillan

      Aaaaaaaaaaaaamen sister!

  • Butch

    Once again I find myself wanting to memorize this entire video.

    • David Walker

      Was very glad, too, for that brief profile.

  • bkmn

    Never underestimate the Republicans unless you enjoy losing.

    • Prion

  • Dale082

    “Shriveled orange ball sack” OMG! I love this man!

    • ElenorRigby

      I really wish he was real and not just a character like Madea or The Church Lady.

      • greenmanTN

        He isn’t just a character. He explains it rather well himself in an interview. The Liberal Redneck is just a more in-your-face version of himself. But he believes everything he says so I would not call that fake. His support for LGBT people came from a gay uncle who he loves.

        In a stand up routine well before these videos he does the more overt “redneck” character, but also talks about being judged for your accent, thought to be a racist or homophobe just because of how you sound.

  • AtticusP

    Somebody should start a drive asking people to send Donald Trump prickly pears with an accompanying tube of KY jelly.

      • Ray Taylor


      • Miji

        You can trademark ‘Tingling’? who knew?

      • Prion

        I had to google Kombucha…

        • AtticusP

          Looks a little like Donald Trump in liquid form, doesn’t it?

          • Looks like a jar full of piss, and the only thing that wouldn’t liquefy – his big, flappy mouth.

          • AtticusP

            Given the choice, I prefer the jar full of piss.

            At least the nuclear launch codes would be safe with it.

          • Maggie 4NoH8

            Only if a UTI was involved!

        • Cackalaquiano

          Me too. We’re not pretentious enough.

          • JustDucky

            And it looks like that’s maybe a good thing. Yikes!

            “Reports of adverse effects related to kombucha consumption are rare. It is unclear whether this is because adverse effects are rare, or just underreported.[2] The American Cancer Society says that “Serious side effects and occasional deaths have been associated with drinking Kombucha tea”.[4]

            Adverse effects associated with kombucha consumption include severe hepatic (liver) and renal (kidney) toxicity as well as metabolic acidosis.[8][9][10] At least one person is known to have died after consuming kombucha, though the drink itself has never been conclusively proved a cause of death.”

        • Capritaur

          That looks like a jar of moldy pickle brine.

        • The_Wretched

          It’s actually unhealthy.

          • TuuxKabin

            Not defending it at all, but home made tea can be easily contaminated by bacteria. We use the squash in a vegetable stew. It isn’t as bad as kale.

        • Bj Lincoln

          Thanks for the link. I had no clue. I love the new things I learn here.

        • Nic Peterson

          I won’t touch the stuff, but the Whole Paycheck down the hill from me has a serve yourself display for $4.99/12oz. Pass.

        • greenmanTN

          That shit is nasty! I bought a kombucha drink at Whole Foods not knowing what it was because it said “Orange Mango” or whaterever. It tasted like watered down vinegar with a splash of fermented cow piss!

    • djcoastermark

      I’ll gladly send a prickly pear but no way in heck am I going to let a good tube of KY go to waste.

      • AtticusP

        Good point. Let’s send him bottles of chili oil instead.

        • charemor

          Absolutely! Then he can really feel the Bern.

  • Alan43

    He’s right. When I listen to Drumpf promising to bring jobs back from overseas “great jobs, in yoooooge numbers” I can see how people who were or feel that they were screwed by the economic changes would find that positive and comforting

    Granted, you’d also have to ignore the fact that it’s total BS…

    • Jamie Brewer

      The south recruited the textile industry out of the northeast on the promise of cheap labor, little regulation, and no unions. Karma is a bitch…

      • Cackalaquiano

        Well, plus the South had the raw material.

        • Yes they did… “cheap labor, little regulation, and no unions.” the fact that the South also produced cotton was just a bonus.

          • GayOldLady

            I’ve been inside those factories and they were primarily female employees, working very long hours, almost non-stop (very short breaks, usually to use bathroom), for chicken feed, with no benefits.

            Those jobs came South because nearly every Southern State is a “Right to work” State which means the employer is King and the Employee is nothing!

          • David Walker

            This is from a TV version of “Working,” a stage musical based on Studs Terkel’s book of interviews. As much as possible, the lyrics were taken from the interviews. Several songwriters were involved in the project, including James Taylor, who wrote this. Sung by Jennifer Warnes, Eileen Brennan plays the mill worker. The musical had a too-short run (IMO), but managed to pick up a national presence thanks to community and small professional theaters.

          • TuuxKabin

            A very moving song. I first heard it sung by Bette Midler at one of her concerts. The audience was stunned into a few seconds of silence before they applauded her. There were quite a few tears shed after that song. Thank you for the source.

          • GayOldLady

            Thanks for sharing that David.

          • charemor

            Studs Terkel was a national treasure.

          • PhilBob13

            Both James and Bette recorded it, too. Both their versions are so soulful. I suggest finding them and having a listen.

          • D. J.

            I remember seeing Westpoint Pepperell mills in Alabama. Parts of Norma Rae were filmed in one of the mills in Opelika, AL.

    • JustSayin’

      angry desperate people want nothing to do with facts. Facts do not feed them or help alleviate what ever is making them angry. It is also why old white folks with a pension do not understand Black Lives Matter; since the problem does not affect them, racial inequality in law enforcement practices means nothing to them, so they have no anger on the subject.

      • TampaZeke

        The Republican Party is the home for people who don’t give a shit about things that don’t affect them personally. That’s why the only Republicans who openly support LGBT rights are Republicans who are LGBT themselves, or Republicans who have LGBT children. But even then, they ONLY support LGBT rights once they or their children COME OUT.

        • Cackalaquiano

          I love the values of American individualism, but the full absence of empathy, or even civic responsibility, is outta control these days.

          • TampaZeke

            That’s what happens when your churches and one of your two major political parties becomes fully invested in the philosophy, “More for ME and FUCK thee!”

  • tcinsf

    Hayav some kom-boo-cha!

    • whollyfool

      Great line!

  • djcoastermark

    As always, 100% gua raun teed to make my day.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    As always, the Liberal Redneck knows just what to say……

  • Prion

    • Snarky

      You forgot the crushing credit card debt they were left with when it ended.

    • ColdCountry

      Love the Harold Hill endorsement!

  • Prion


    • ColdCountry

      Love it!

  • Prion


    • William

      Is that Trumpolini?

  • Prion


    • JT

      Biggest con man ever.

      • David Walker

        True. At least most of the people who gave P. T. Barnum their money knew they were being conned. I think the Drumpfsters don’t have a clue

        • D. J.

          And/or don’t care. A case of mass hysteria with suicidal thoughts. Suicide by politician instead of suicide by cop.

  • JustSayin’

    i like this guy… as usual right on Target.

    • Whenever I despair that common sense is dead in this world, I go visit his YouTube channel. It gives me hope…

      …been there a lot lately.

  • easygoingmister

    Yea for Trae!

  • TampaZeke

    This man is all kinds of brilliant!

    “If you sit your ass on the couch come November then we’re ALL gonna get what YOU deserve!”

    I don’t think I’ve ever heard it stated better.

  • William

    “Melted candle-ass mother fucker”


  • Brilliant! Trae, do you have a gay twin? And is he single? Though why anyone would want me as a sister-in-law boggles the mind. XD

    • Rex

      You’d be very entertaining at family holiday get-togethers.

      • That’s the only reason they keep me… couple of (bottles) of vodka, and it’s SHOW TIME!!

    • ColdCountry

      Mommie Dammit, based on what I’ve heard from you, I’d be honored to have you in my family. Unfortunately, I have no brothers, gay or otherwise.

      • That’s so very sweet of you C.C. – it would warm the cockles of my little black heart…. if I still had one, that is. But I love you for it, heart or no.

  • Kyle Deetz

    “Well it ain’t so simple, TRISTAN!”

  • How come he didn’t do this one with his shirt off? I cry foul! And next time, I wanna see his nipples!

  • witch

    OT … I would love for this gentleman to be the voice for my audio books 🙂

  • Todd

    Trae … We need to see your …..errrrr ….prick ly pear.

    Enjoy. His vids

  • leastyebejudged

    Sorry, was he saying something ?

  • MT YVR

    Awwww…. the shirt is back. Damn. (sigh) Fine, I’ll listen to him too.

  • JR

    “Melted candle ass mutherfucker…”

  • Gigi

    OT: I love this site. I’ve had some amazing conversations with people here and usually LOL a few times a day at some of the comments. I went over to Towleroad just now to take a look around and let me tell you — the people who post over there (most, but not all) are not of the same calibre as the fine people who post here at JMG.

    • greenmanTN

      I agree. For one thing they have this bizarre comment restriction software that sometimes won’t let you quote words from their OWN article! After a few too many completely benign comments of mine were rejected for no reason I could discern I said “Fuck it, I am outta here!”

      The way to handle trolls isn’t to limit speech, but to build a robust community of commenters to drown them out. To me Joe My God is the evidence of that. No one should be looking at their screen and thinking “What did I do wrong?! I didn’t use any racist terms, didn’t attack another poster, didn’t use any derogatory names at all, and I didn’t even say ‘fuck’ ONCE!” So why is my comment rejected?

      Even Queerty is a preferable option to Towleroad for that reason and that reason only, even if it is the National Enquirer of gay sites!

      I really appreciate the community that Joe has built here.

  • Brilliant as this one is, my favorite is still this…

    • greenmanTN

      The only thing I don’t like about that video is he’s wearing UT orange, perhaps the most heinous color on the planet. I live in Tenessee so I see it a lot. I always imagine the decision process to be something like this: “How about Baby-Shit Green? Nope, already taken! OK, so that vile eye-poking shade of orange it is!”

  • greenmanTN

    I cannot tell you how much I love this guy. Liberals and atheists in the South have to put up with a lot of shit, and now here’s a comedian calling them on it. I think it’s true that comedians can be the voice of reason- just look at Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. I almost had an orgasm during Colbert’s speech at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. It was the first time someone with an audience told the truth about George W Bush and I believe it broke open the dam.

    Sometimes only the jester can tell the truth about the King.

  • I adore this man.

  • Orly

    Well it’s not that simple Tristan.


  • Octavio

    “A prickly pear.” Preferably Opuntia engelmannii, Cows Tongue Cactus.

  • He articulates my greatest fear: that the DNC and Dem candidates are going to keep trying to use logic to persuade voters who think yoga is a form of satanic worship and consider Sarah Palin a “thought leader.” Logic won’t help you here.

  • Chayste in LA

    “Who want’s kombucha?” You made my day, honeybear. ^_^

  • andrew

    Are you listening Hillary? We need you to listen and respond constructively to some of the grievances of folks who are being taken in by Trump. At this point a successful Hillary is the only thing that can prevent the unimaginable disaster that would be a Trump Presidency.
