CelebrityWatch Lin-Manuel Miranda Transform One Long Donald Trump Sentence Into a Musical Masterpiece
It almost makes it sound less crazy. Almost.
Lin-Manuel Miranda is a gifted songwriter, as evidenced by his musical theatre masterpiece Hamilton. Earlier this month, he joined GQ on the top of a NYC sightseeing bus to turn Trump tweets into beautiful music, and now he's back making music out of one long, horrible run-on sentence Trump said in August.
It's about… science? Education? Political expectations? It's tough to tell.
Miranda does his best to shape it into a coherent sentiment, and the result is a terrifyingly suspenseful musical experience that's dizzying in its bizarreness. It goes on for so long that it turns into a full musical on its own with emotional peaks and valleys. Eventually everyone on the bus gets involved, snapping their fingers, and when the sentence is finally over, Miranda has one thing to say: vote.
The conclusion? Trump would make a terrible lyricist and Miranda really goes for it, no matter what material he's been working with. Bravo!
