Donald Trump’s leaked Georgia phone call set to a song from Rent is just fabulous
You’ll know by now that leaked recording of Donald Trump appearing to attempt to persuade a Georgia election official to help him find the extra votes he needs to defeat Joe Biden.
Now the phone call – or bits of it – have been set to music by comedy musical quartet, the Gregory Brothers.
Specifically, to the song Seasons of Love from the musical Rent, and it’s very funny and very, very clever.

And the longer version is even better.

It’s a hit!
I think it’s safe to say that Jonathan Larson would have been very proud. He was intensely political, and would have HATED Donald. I love this. https://t.co/4sidlTP50E
