It seems like trolling POTUS is a trendy celebrity activity to do these days.
Last night at the Country Music Association 2017 Awards, hosts and country singers Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley used their platform to poke fun at Trump.
Underwood and Paisley began the night by recognizing the country’s recent tragedies and using their singing as a way to lift spirits.
“Our music lifts people up and that’s what we’re here to do tonight,” said Paisley right before jumping into the mock singing session.
They sang Underwood’s popular hit “Before He Cheats” but with a fun little twist.
They saw this as the perfect opportunity to roast Trump’s infamous covfefe tweet, confused on how to even pronounce it, because of course it’s not a real word.
The chorus of their parody duet is pretty spot on, “It’s fun to watch it that’s for sure, until little Rocket Man starts a nuclear war and maybe next time he’ll think… before he tweets.”
Many people have mixed feelings about the country stars’ decison to mock Trump. They seem to have made some fans very happy, as well as have lost some.
Carrie Underwood & Brad Paisley, along with every other country music artist taking a political stand, I COMMEND YOU and am proud to be your fan. Thank you for using your voice, in an extremely courageous way.

This is definitely a song we’d listen to on repeat.
