Randy Rainbow: The Russian Connection [VIDEO]

Wildly popular YouTube comedian Randy Rainbow usually turns to Broadway classics for his scathingly funny songs, but today he employs Kermit The Frog’s 1979 classic The Rainbow Connection to riff on Trump, Spicer, Tillerson, Sessions, and Conway. I won’t give away the jokes, just watch below.

    OT, but please vote for my beautiful friend Robby. If she wins she’s going to donate the winnings to SMYAL. It’s an organization that supports LGBT youth.

      Hahaha! We know the same people! I saw her pic in your post and was like, “WTH? Is that Roberta?”

      She used to actually be one of my husband’s best friends back when they lived in the same city.

      • Rebecca Gardner

        That’s so awesome! So is this back when all of us lived in NYC?

        • vorpal 😼

          Metro DC area, actually!

          I lived there with the husband for four months and apart from the constant security histrionics and overwhelming poverty, I found it to be a beautiful city with amazing food.

          • Rebecca Gardner

            Ah OK. She is still in DC. I knew here from back in NYC. She moved to DC, I moved to SF. But we chat almost everyday. I miss her. She’s a really awesome person.

          • vorpal 😼

            I only had the pleasure of hanging out with her a handful of times, but I fully agree! She always made me feel warm and welcome and completely comfortable, and on top of that, she is a ton of fun!

      that’s a pretty accurate depiction of the emotions involved in hearing trump or trying to back up what he says.

    • Treant

      I find this disturbing on many levels.

    Wait a sec, Abby Lee Miller went to jail?

    Oh. Bankruptcy fraud. Huge shocker there.

    Trump: “I want to get to the bottom”.
    RR: “Well, you’ve come to the right place, teehee”.

    Love that.

    …then there’s this. Will Will & Jack be permitted to kiss their paramours on network tv in 2017?

    Todd Rundgren’s interview with Variety on his new album:
    Variety : The anti-Trump song you did with Fagen reminded me of when I saw you perform in Los Angeles last year, and right after you made some remarks about your feelings about Trump, the couple next to me angrily walked out. You left the impression that doesn’t bother you.
    Rundgren:No. If I had the power, I’d say: If you’re a Trump supporter, don’t come to my show, because you won’t have a good time. And also, I don’t understand your frickin’ values. Because I’m not singing about that. If you don’t understand that basic thing, you’re just fooling yourself. I guarantee that in this show, if you’re a Trump supporter, you will likely be offended. Let the buyer beware! I mean, if you can’t take a joke, or you can’t admit that you’ve made a mistake, you don’t belong with the rest of us. [Laughs]

    Another beaut from Randy!

  • JaniceInToronto

    What is it going to take to get rid of the bastard?
    He lies, he’s deceptive, deceitful, etc. etc. etc.
    BUT NOTHING HAPPENS TO STOP HIM!

    Christ, this is getting annoying. Talk, talk, talk, and he just keeps on lying and being the president.

  • Dazzer

    I really like this guy. He’s amazingly talented and is capable of putting together a genuinely funny, witty production together in just days.

    Other comedians put together scenes that aren’t as funny or as complex, but take longer.

    He’s a real American original and deserves to be treasured.

  • CraigNJ

    Hair Furor says “he” has no connections to the Russians, but what about his businesses?

  • Rex

    Trump is a caricature. He’s so self absorbed and insecure that he can’t take a joke.
    But he is a joke and will continue to be. So, keep it up, for all the grief he gave Obama, Hillary, and countless others he deserves it.

  • Mikey

    Ok, I will admit, first off, that Rainbow Connection is one of my all-time favourite songs. I can’t help it, hearing it always brings a tear to my eye and a lump in my throat (no, I had it looked at and the doctor said it’s not cancer).

    While this was – as usual – absolutely hysterical, goddammit! I’d listen to Randy sing that song all day. The boy can sing.

    Handsome, talented, AND a great voice?! Marry me.

    How in the world can Drump stay in office and the rest of us have to jump through hoops to get a Call Center Rep job?
