[Ed. – Imagine if a Republican lawmaker had done the same in blackface during Obama’s term in office. (Make that ‘half-blackface.)]
Congressman and Democratic National Committee deputy chairman Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) displayed his singing abilities at this year’s MinnRoast event with a song mocking President Donald Trump.
“If I want to be called a stable genius, I just call my best friend Vladamir Putin,” Ellison sang while wearing a Trump-style wig and playing an acoustic guitar to the tune of “Guantanamera.”
Ellison was accompanied by Minneapolis City Council Member Jeremiah Ellison, who played the drums. The song included lyrics about adult film actress Stormy Daniels, special counsel Robert Mueller, collusion with Russia, and former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R.).
“Now there is one guy I can’t stand, even though he voted for me. He called me unhinged and unfit. Which is it, Tim Pawlenty?” Ellison sang.
