Randy Rainbow Channels Ariana Grande, Begs Nancy Pelosi to Impeach Trump in New Parody Video: Watch
After the highly-scrutinized findings from Robert Mueller’s extensive report on President Trump were finally published last month, many Democrats have been calling for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to begin impeachment proceedings, which she has repeatedly pushed back against. Now, internet comedian Randy Rainbow is joining the chorus, asking Pelosi to reconsider.
On Tuesday (May 28), Rainbow released his latest video titled “Just Impeach Him,” a parody of Ariana Grande’s Sweetener single “Breathin." At the video’s outset, Rainbow does a faux interview with the president following his decision to storm out of a meeting with Democrats last week. When he continues to sniffle and inhale sharply, Rainbow tells the president to “just keep wheezing, seething, panting, screaming” amid the cries for impeachment.
As the video continues, Rainbow continuously changes costumes, paying homage to Grande. He transitions into another interview, this time with Pelosi, where he gives her some sage advice about what to do regarding the president’s misconduct: “Impeach him, impeach him, impeach him, impeach him,” he sings. “You know it’s what they want/ Just impeach him.”
Meanwhile, following a comprehensive profile on Rainbow in The Washington Post, Lin-Manuel Miranda sent out a tweet praising the star’s talent, and quoting a conversation he had with Broadway legend Stephen Sondheim. “Last time I saw him he told me: ‘he’s good as anyone writing lyrics right now. And what he’s doing is harder,’” Miranda wrote. Rainbow was clearly thrilled with the Hamilton creator’s response, tweeting back, “I’m only gonna get it tattooed on my face.”
