Much in the same way that Broadway breakout hit “Hamilton” came out quietly from the wings and bursted onto the main stage, Donald Trump has gone from dark horse to having a where-the-hell-did-he-come-from?!-type of success on the political front.
And while at first glance, founding father Alexander Hamilton — focus of the sold-out, Grammy-winning, chart topping rap hit musical — might not have much in common with the Donald, sketch comedy group Rad Motel begs to differ.
“Hamiltrump” tells the mythical tale of Trump in rhyming beats.
“How does the bastard, racist son of a millionaire and a mogul dropped in the middle of a race of the Republicans in tatters, a party nearly shattered somehow become the only one that matters?” TBH, we are wondering the same thing. Seriously, how?
Rascal Alexander Hamilton used his wits and intrepidness to get to the top of the political ladder more than two centuries ago. Donald Trump? Not so much, and this music video contrasts that with the seemingly cushy way Trump rose to the stop.
The comedy troupe rips Trump pretty hard; Rad Motel points out his two failed marriages before meeting “mail-order bride” Melania, they remind people of his (previously stated) disturbing comments about daughter Ivanka and even mention that damn wall.
