It seemed like something that could not possibly happen, but Donald Trump found a way to make the 4th of July sh*tty. Just like other fascists throughout history, he decided that the annual celebration of the United States becoming a free nation should be tied to his name — so he had some folks perform a musical rendition of “Make America Great Again.”
It’s surreal, like something you’d see in a North Korean propaganda video — but it actually happened. On Tuesday, The Donald tweeted a video of a chorus standing before a gigantic American flag premiering Trump’s campaign slogan in musical form. It’s also quite possibly the worst thing you will hear in your life:

Seriously, though, it’s just like North Korean propaganda:
While his racist, xenophobic, violent, and deplorable supporters absolutely loved the song (Let’s face it: they would say a well done steak topped with 45’s feces tastes delicious), the rest of us are left staring at our screens wondering how the fuck we’ve fallen so far:
What a diverse collection of white Americans.

Why did POTUS tweet a trailer for the next PURGE movie?

Is it still considered independence when our “president” is a Russian puppet?

At first I thought, “Look! A decent tweet!”
But no. Instead, the debut of “Make America Great Again.” Does EVERYTHING have to be about you?

Could it be any whiter? Jesus effin christ.

Uhmmm… This isn’t a patriotic song, it’s merely a Trump Campaign song. You should probably seek help.

That’s NOT the National Anthem asshat

WTF kind of Kool-aid horseshit is this? No national anthem? No America The Beautiful? “Make America Great Again”?!? God you’re scary ♂️

This is a really horseshit awful song.

The Donald once again proves he’s not patriotic and totally unAmerican – this video is another testament of how unpresidential you are

You couldn’t have just tweeted the actual national anthem but instead some garbage maga nonsense your campaign made up? #SAD
— Ryan Schmid (@Schmiddysaurus) July 4, 2017
This isn’t about America once again it’s about you. A campaign slogan.
I hate you because I love my county.

While a better man (or woman) would have simply celebrated the birth of our nation, Trump chose to make the day about himself — creepily adding what his followers are already considering their new national anthem. Instead of patriotism, we get propaganda from our President-with-an-asterisk.
