Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley hosted last night’s Country Music Awards and opened with a roast of Donald Trump that left the audience holding their sides with laughter. The two mocked Trump as only they could – in song.
Underwood started the skit, saying producers had insisted the awards show was “a politics-free zone,” and, obviously, the two were off to a roaring start.
Paisley asked Underwood if that meant he couldn’t perform his new songs, “She Wrote a Memoir, Hillary’s Back,” “Hold Me Closer Bernie Sanders,” or “Stand By Your Manafort.”
But when Paisley launched into a slightly tweaked version of Underwood’s hit song “Before He Cheats,” the crowd went wild.
“Right now, he’s probably in his PJs, watching cable news, reaching for his cellphone,” Paisley sang. “Right now, he’s probably asking Siri how in the hell you spell Pocahontas.”
“And it’s fun to watch until little rocket man starts a nuclear war. Maybe next time he’ll think before he tweets.”
Watch the entire performance and start counting down the moments until Trump tweets about it.
