Some moments need little introduction, and defy explanation. Such is the case with CNN anchors Don Lemon‘s and Chris Cuomo‘s impromptu duet of the theme song to that satirical 70s ode to normalized racism, All in the Family.
On Tuesday night’s edition of Cuomo Prime Time, Cuomo and Lemon did their customary pre-toss segment, and the subject of Donald Trump‘s technophobia came up.
Cuomo observed that with Trump, “it’s not about the facts, it’s about the feeling that he’s trying to evoke. Things used to be better before, and then fill in the blank. Technology, again, I think he’s on weak footing on that.”
“But, you know, before these newfangled industries, before this multiculturalism, before this everything is okay and everyone is equal, before, let’s make ourselves great again,” Cuomo continued. “I say to people all the time, when were we ever greater than we are today? More free, more inclusive.”
That’s when Lemon cut in with “Boy, the way Glenn Miller played…”
And yes, they sang the entire thing, and even nailed that “Gee, our old LaSalle ran great” line, the most difficult theme song line since “Hangin’ in a chow line.”
