Sunday Funday: October Surprise A Dilly Edition

Here is a parody on Dear Leader from a young talent named Songbird. This was inspired by Randy Rainbow and built on a Billie Eilish song (3:15)

Dear Leader being felled by a hoax is one dilly of an October Surprise. Historically the October Surprise is a bit of information that will greatly embarrass your opponent. In this case Dear Leader has been knocked out of the game by something that he has at various times called a hoax and claimed didn’t really exist. 

Too bad that he will probably make many others within the White House gravely sick and possibly even die. Isn’t his party the party of personal responsibility? He and his family has acted very irresponsibly.

Wow what a week.

  1. A.D. says:

    Unfortunately, if Trump appears to fully and quickly recover (and things being what they are, we may never know if covid has caused long-term damage to his body as has happened to many others), that will be taken by some of his avid followers as a clear sign that the deity wants him to serve another term. For unsettling evidence of this attitude, just google “God has chosen Trump.”
