While the English majors around the country are still struggling to comprehend a nonsensical run-on sentence from Donald Trump’s July speech, where he rambled about everything from his genealogy to Iran, “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda somehow turned it into a one-act musical.
Putting his famous free-styling skills to use, the Tony Award winning “$10 founding father” altered the Republican presidential nominee’s mostly incoherent gibberish into a hilarious song. Though none of it still makes sense, at least it sounds better coming from the man who managed to make a theater sensation out of America's founding history.
Riding a double-decker bus in New York City, the Broadway star belted out phrases like, “Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune,” and “you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged.”
The Times Literary Supplement editor and publisher, Stig Abell, has been studying Trump’s bizarre manner of speaking for quite some time now — and even he did not have any luck breaking it down.

However, he recently concluded that Trump’s “hypnotic repetition of monosyllables (serves) to inculcate a distracted electorate with a sense of his genius.”

Earlier this month, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s also performed some of Donald Trump’s tweet for the GQ magazine.
