In a song parody of “The Jitterbug” ― a tune cut from “The Wizard of Oz” ― the YouTube comedian taunted the president for reportedly seeking refuge in the underground hideout as protests over George Floyd’s death flared outside the executive mansion.
Secret Service agents rushed Trump, first lady Melania and son Barron into the bunker for an hour, AP noted. They were never in any real danger, officials told The New York Times, but the anti-racism demonstrations were said to have “rattled” them.
Trump later said he was just inspecting the bunker. He didn’t get the benefit of the doubt from Rainbow.
“Guess who’s hiding in the basement? It’s that coward, the Bunker Boy,” Rainbow sang. “... A commander-in-chief might address all the grief, and what’s happening out in the streets, but he’s only a clown so he hides underground, and he sits on the toilet and tweets.”
