Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, hosts of the Country Music Association Awards, flouted the whims of CMA producers with a political opening song poking fun at President Donald Trump.
After Underwood informed Paisley that CMA guidelines said the show would be a “politics free zone,” Paisley joked that he wouldn’t be able to perform such parody songs as ““She Wrote a Memoir, Hillary’s Back,” “Hold Me Closer Bernie Sanders,” or “Stand By Your Manafort.”
But then, Paisley said screw it, and launched into a rendition of Underwood’s 2005 hit “Before He Cheats,” but with a few alterations to fit the song to the current president.
“Right now, he’s probably in his PJs, watching cable news, reaching for his cellphone,” Paisley sang.
“Right now, he’s probably asking Siri how in the hell you spell Pocahontas,” he continued, as Underwood joined in.
“In the middle of the night from the privacy of a good-plated White House toilet seat, he writes little ‘Bob Corker, NFL and covfefe.’ And it’s fun to watch until little rocket man starts a nuclear war. Maybe next time he’ll think before he tweets.”
“Yeah, we can’t do that one,” Underwood concluded.
