Randy Rainbow

Despite all the reassurances that the Trump era would be good for comedy, 45 has largely just made things insane and unstable, forcing reputable publications to print headlines that put The Onion’s satire to shame and prompt late-night talk show hosts to plead in teary-eyed sincerity for politicians to take things more seriously. Randy Rainbow, meanwhile, who first rose to YouTube prominence for his videos mocking celebrities such as Mel Gibson, seems to only get sharper as the shit hits the fan. Tackling Trumpism through parodies of showtunes like “How Do You Solve a Problem Like Korea?” and the Roy Moore-inspired “She Was 16 Going on 17” and editing himself into political interviews, Rainbow manages to be equally savage and silly, his sheer exuberance inspiring hope in the face of cynicism. The fact that he’s becoming an LGBT icon while singing self-harmonized truth to power would only piss off his targets even more, and adds a layer of heroic inspiration to the goofy fun.
