Donald Trump might not be a good presidential candidate (or a decent human being for that matter), but he has the potential to become a great rapper — all he has to do is drop his bid for the presidency and let someone competent win the race.
“The Daily Show” pressed on this idea in its latest episode by releasing a catchy hip-hop video based entirely on the billionaire business mogul’s most outrageous quotes.
“Trump doesn’t belong in the White House. Donald Trump belongs in a rap video,” show correspondent Roy Wood Jr. told host Trevor Noah on Thursday. “Everything Trump says is straight out of a rapper’s play book. He brags about his money, he’s disrespectful to women and there’s always fights at his concerts.”
To prove that one could make an entire song only using the self-loving misogynist’s words of wisdom from the campaign trail, Wood adopted the role of “Black Trump” and teamed up with Jordan Klepper for ridiculously catchy “They Love Me” music video.
The lyrics are annotated with dates the statements were made.
Here’s an excerpt:
“I was down there at 7-Eleven
Spent almost nothing on my run for president
All the women flirted with me on The Apprentice
If Ivanka weren’t my daughter, then perhaps I’d be dating her”
Really, if this presidency thing does not work out, Trump should look into a career in music industry.
Watch “They Love Me” in the video above.
