Ahead of signing the farm bill into law on Thursday, President Donald Trump tweeted a video of himself belting out “Farm living is the life for me!” while clad in overalls and a straw hat, wielding a pitchfork.
The clip comes from the 2006 Emmys, when a bit included millionaire Trump singing the Green Acres theme song with actress Megan Mullally.
The president tweeted the video minutes before he signed the Agriculture Improvement Act, aka the $400 billion farm bill.
The farm bill would authorize more than $800 million in federal agriculture funding and was approved by Congress last month, according to the Washington Post.
“Farm Bill signing in 15 minutes!
#Emmys #TBT,” Trump wrote.
Mullally’s reaction mirrored many people’s: “Omg,” she wrote.
