Randy Rainbow, who is known for creating parodies of popular songs with a social and political twist, has once again delivered a scathing takedown of former President Donald Trump's recent indictment in New York.
Using the WWII jump blues song "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" by Don Raye and Hughie Prince, made famous by the Andrews Sisters in 1941, Randy has twisted the lyrics to reflect the legal troubles that Trump may be facing.
The parody features a fake interview between Randy and Trump, with Trump asking for Randy's endorsement for a third presidential bid. The indictment is related to hush money paid to adult film actress Stormy Daniels just before the 2016 election, with some Republicans doubting the validity of the case and the testimony of Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen.

At one point, he and a trio of Randys sing over a jazzy arrangement:
“He was a sleazy showbiz phony born in NYC/ Who somehow won the White House over Hillary/ Then after one term got the sack/ When Biden pummeled his a**, but now he wants to come back."
“He’s been indicted though/ And so he’s making scenes/ He’s the grumpy Trumpy felon from Jamaica in Queens."
“He met a lovely lady who performed on screen/ She started yappin’ in two thousand and sixteen/ And so he signed a bunch of checks."
"Cuz he’s disgusting and so he had to pay her for sex/ Looks like a butternut squash and his hair is bleached/ He’s the bloated orange lunatic who’s twice been impeached."
It was clear from the reactions on social media that Randy had created another hit.
In recent months, Randy Rainbow—yes, that really is his name—has focused on his podcast where he interviews celebrities and other prominent figures while still finding ways to comment on the political issues of the day.
His last parody video, released last month, took aim at New York Republican Representative George Santos' penchant for lying with a Mary Poppins-inspired video that incorporates the song “Jolly Holliday” from the classic Disney film.
Another, released in January, reworked "Master of the House" from the musical Les Miserables to lampoon Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's contentious fight for the House speakership.
