This hip hop slam of Dillary Trumplon just made my day.
We all know there’s nothing like hearing a wordsmith do what they do over a great beat, especially when it involves a takedown.
Remember in 8 Mile when Eminem got his revenge in a legendary rap battle? Or, if you’re old enough to remember the East Coast versus West Coast rap feud of the 90s, then you’ll recall the responses we had to those perfectly orchestrated insults aimed directly at where it would hurt most.
There’s just something about hearing someone tell it like it is in a rhyme.
And in a time where many younger voters would rather a catastrophic meteor hit the Earth to either a Donal Trump or Hillary Clinton presidency, I have to appreciate those who see through the farce of this election.
And Blaise Guerra’s hip-hop takedown of both of our candidates is absolutely epic. He owns them. His rhyming rant just sums it all up in my opinion, as I have often stopped amidst the storm this year to scratch my head in wonder, “How the f*ck did we get here?”
In a poll conducted by Odyssey a few weeks ago, it was shown that of the 1,247 voters aged 17-35 surveyed:
“Trump is viewed so negatively by millennials that clear majorities of them prefer some unorthodox alternatives to a Trump presidency: 67% would prefer a citizen be chosen at random over Trump; 66% would rather President Obama serve a life term; 55% would prefer a giant meteor strike the Earth, extinguishing all human life.“
A majority of millennials would prefer President Obama serve a life term over a Clinton presidency; 39% prefer a random citizen; 34% prefer the giant meteor over Clinton, as well.”
Yet many people find nothing wrong with reports like these. “Ummm, okay I’ll vote for that woman but only because there’s no meteor and her opponent is a lunatic,” or, “I’ll vote for the psycho because that woman is going to take us to WWIII.”
To me it’s a bit too akin to choosing between a root canal with no anesthesia or novocaine and having my fingernails pulled out one by one. And insanely enough, I’m the minority in this, so when I uncover people like Blaise putting it to music and putting it out there, I rejoice that alas I am not alone in this insanity.
His response? Perfection.
“The name Dillary Trumplon is used to show how the two candidates represent two different forms of evil. No matter which one wins, we all lose! People are voting for Trump either because they’re ass backward enough to think of him as the savior this country needs, because they’re racists, or because they’re conservatives who hate Hillary. And people are voting for Hillary either because she’ll be the first woman president, because they are extremely misinformed as to the kind of person she truly is…or because they were Sanders supporters who are absolutely terrified of the idea of Donald trump being in the Oval Office. Regardless, whichever candidate wins, we all lose. Therefore, Dillary Trumplon is inevitably our president.”
I couldn’t have said it better than he does here, so enough out of me. Enjoy.
