Democratic U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota did his best Donald Trump impression Friday, and it left a lot to be desired.
Ellison, the deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, made a spectacle of himself with the help of his son, Minneapolis City Council Member Jeremiah Ellison, as the two jammed out for MinnRoast2018.
Ellison donned a blond wig and suit with red tie, and played the guitar, while Jeremiah provided percussion to the tune of “Guantanamera.”
“I’m a nice honest man, I just want straight-shootin’
“If I want to be called a stable genius, I’ll just call my friend Vlad Putin.
“Vlad Putin. My buddy Vladimir Putin. Vladimir Putin, I love that Vladimir Putin,” Ellison riffed.
A few folks laughed, and Jeremiah grinned as he rapped a beat.
“But there was no collusion. I just won the vote fair and square.
“I didn’t buy the election, I just bought off my latest affair,” Ellison continued.
“Robert Mueller, I hate that Robert Mueller.
“I’m firing Robert Mueller, I’m firing Robert Mueller,” he said.
Then it was back to porn star Stormy Daniels, who initially denied an alleged affair with Trump before changing her story to contend the president paid her $130,000 to keep quiet.
“What good is a $130K, I should have paid Stormy more
“You can stop asking about covfefe, that’s just Russian for porn
“Stormy Daniels, I miss you Stormy Daniels.
“Stormy Daniels, come back Stormy Daniels,” he continued.
Ellison went on to mock the president about his reaction to a clash between leftist radicals and white nationalists in Charlottesville, Virginia, as well as former Republican governor of Minnesota, Tim Pawlenty.
He closed the set by prompting the audience to sing along with his rendition of “This Land Is Your Land.”
The performance is the latest in a long string of bizarre behavior and questionable comments from the second in charge of the Democratic National Committee.
Ellison recently showed up at a May Day parade with a shirt that read “Yo no creo en fronteras,” which translates to “I don’t believe in borders” in English, City Pages reports.
Other recent videos show Ellison is a big fan of universal basic income, and “maximum wage” – a progressive concept aimed at punishing successful business owners with large salaries, according to The American Mirror.
