IN A WORLD WITHOUT POLITICAL CORRECTNESS
In a world ‘governed’ by the ability to express personal thoughts without the constraints of being the President of the United States.
Just imagine if President Obama was able to say what he really thinks!
For now we just imagine what President Barak Obama might be thinking about Donald Trump and the current election.
Perfect lyrics, in my humble opinion!
A recent episode of This American Life featured a song written by Sara Bareilles and sung by Hamilton star Leslie Odom Jr. imagining what President Barak Obama might be thinking about Donald Trump and the current election.
Now, there’s a video to accompany it.
The four minute visual shows Odom Jr. in the studio with a band, delivering and impassioned performance as the lyrics roll out at the bottom of the screen.
In the song, Odom Jr. sings, Bareilles’ poetic verse,
“One man rewriting the book on bad behavior/ Maybe cheats the neighbors/ Feels they get what they pay for/ We can’t pat him on the back and send him on through/ No man’s ignorance will ever be his virtue/ Is this the best we can be?
“As it appears in … full read/full credit”
I do not own these images.
No intention of taking credit.
If anyone knows the owner of any, please advise and it will be corrected immediately.

This American Life, Sara Bareilles, and Leslie Odom, Jr.

This American Life asked Sara Bareilles (Broadway’s “Waitress”) to imagine what President Obama might be thinking about the current election and Donald Trump, but can’t say publicly. Leslie Odom, Jr., performs the song.
We ALL are ONE!!
