That is of course Donald Trump’s slogan though he does not say when he thinks it was great before. Below is a video that takes that slogan and parodies the Trump campaign. That such parodies exist is not surprising. But in this case, it was produced by a conservative Arizona group known as the Public Integrity Alliance that has also targeted other politicians whom they deemed were giving conservatism a bad name.
Now, disgusted by the rise of foul-mouthed demagogue Donald Trump, the PIA, which some wags snark also stands for “Pain in the Ass,” is taking aim at The Donald and his dumb-as-dirt, ditto-head supporters, lampooning the latter in an awesome new music video for the spoof song, “Make America Great Again.”
The video features Phoenix comedian Brian Nissen’s reprising his running, redneck character “Dwain,” a mullet-headed simpleton who loves corndogs, Karate, pickup trucks, sittin’ out in the yard on a beat-up couch, and, of course, Trump, because he’s not afraid to say the things that ordinary idiots like Dwain think and want their leaders to regurgitate.
PIA founder and president Tyler Montague, who plays one of Dwain’s redneck pals in the video, says it was the suggestion of a Muslim ban that ticked off his group and motivated them to act.
“When he said the stuff about Muslims, we were like, we’ve got to call that out, and make fun of the absurdity of that,” Montague tells New Times.
Indeed, Trump’s defense of his idea by citing America’s internment of Japanese during WWII as a good thing, also incensed the rock-ribbed Mesa Republican.
“This country has spent the last 70 years lashing itself over how wrong it was to put the Japanese in internment camps,” he says. “And when Trump says that about Muslims, people say, `Yeah, that’s a great idea.’ Really? No. That’s a bad idea. Come on.”
