Bad Lip Reading’s Christmas jingle is a Trumpian nightmare

‘Christmas is here, Christmas is here, grab a friend’s hand and yank them near.’

A world where Donald Trump thinks the war on Christmas is over? There’s only one way for him to celebrate: with an over-the-top Christmas song.

Thanks to Bad Lip Reading, this holiday ditty comes straight from Trump’s mouth, with backup vocals by Melania Trump and the animatronic Trump in Disney. Does Trump even like Christmas? “Christmas Is Here” doesn’t really say, and the lyrics are as much about Trump’s triumphs and attributes as much as it is about Christmas itself.

It’s too early to see if it’ll catch on by next Christmas, but it’s enough of an earworm with a slightly terrifying hook that it just might.
