“Make America Great Again”

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.”

    More likely Tae Kwon Do. Note the Korean flag on the shoulder of his martial arts outfit.

    @ ^ .. You need to improve your hardware using skills or get a professional in to do things right for you?


    Just seeing an ”Unable to resolve the server’s DNS address’ message here instead of the clip, sadly.

    Is anyone else having that issue or care to suggest any fix for it?

    Hmmm, I thought America was already not only great but Exceptional!!! You know, god’s special snowflake, the New Israel.
    Now Trump is saying we aren’t great???
    This is typical of christofascists. They can never keep their story straight and can believe two contradictory things before breakfast.
    Fundie theology. “God loves us and is going to kill everyone Any Minute Now and send everyone but us to Hell to be tortured forever.”

    I can’t watch Trump videos. That face is a creampie magnet.

    But then, all the other candidates are good targets as well.

    Make America Great Again might be Trump’s one and only dog whistle in that it really means Make America White Again.

    Glad to finally hear someone from the conservative far side acknowledge how all their anti-Muslim/anti-Immigrant rhetoric directly parallels much of the same fear-hatred that lead the US to lock up Japanese Americans in WW2. …ignorance of the past dooming us to repeat the same mistakes of history, and all…
