When U.S. Attorney General William Barr first made his announcement that Robert Mueller’s report exonerated President Donald Trump of collusion and obstruction of justice, Internet comedian Randy Rainbow made a parody video, wishing that there was more in store from the long-awaited findings. It turns out, the singer got his wish.
In a new video released Monday (April 29), Rainbow took a second look at the now-released Mueller report, this time taking aim at Barr for his role in spreading misinformation with his initial announcement. Singing to the tune of Beauty and the Beast’s famous opening number “Belle,” Rainbow blazes through the various talking heads in the Trump administration, with his main ire focused at “Barr.”
Starting out at a White House press conference, where Barr defended his earlier summary of the Mueller report, Rainbow launches into his song, immediately criticizing the president for trying to undermine Mueller’s investigation by hiring Barr. “Since he really did obstruct/ He said ‘Oh my God, I’m f---ed'/ Then he called Bill Barr and offered him the job,” he sings.
