See ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic’s Hilarious Debate Parody ‘Bad Hombres, Nasty Women’
“To stop a Cold War, what should we be doin’?/ Would you go thumb-wrestle Vladimir Putin?” he sings mocking third presidential debate
“Weird Al” Yankovic teamed with Songify to relive the insult-laden third presidential election in the key of Bb minor for “Bad Hombres, Nasty Women.”
Named after two of Donald Trump‘s more quotable moments, Yankovic serves as moderator for the Autotuned showdown, with Trump and Hillary Clinton “singing” about Russia, the Supreme Court and how “our country is dying big league, big league.”
“Can everyone achieve for the American dream, or should they sign up for my Ponzi scheme,” the parodist sings as moderator. “To stop a Cold War, what should we be doin’?/ Would you go thumb-wrestle Vladimir Putin?/ We have so many adversaries overseas/ Can we all agree to be frenemies?”
“Bad Hombres, Nasty Women” also features many of the third debate’s better burns, from Clinton’s quip about “Chinese steel” and Trump being Putin’s puppet to the Republican nominee’s proclamation that the election is “rigged.” Still, Trump’s quintessential “bad hombres” line gets the most play.
