Wooo, Ok! “Shimmy, Shimmy, Shimmy HRC” rocks the internet

BY TROY MASTERS  |  It was the inevitable defining moment of a whacko presidential contest.  Hillary Clinton shot back, after an incoherent Trump ramble during the first Presidential nominee debate of the 2016 campaign, with body language that was a simultaneous laugh and shudder…they’re calling it the Shimmy.  And now it’s been set to music and the exchange incorporated into song:

trumpy“The Hillary Shimmy Song,” was written by YouTuber Jonathan Mann.  His  viral video has received more than one million views.

The Pride LA will go as far as saying the song is the surprise break-out hit of the year.

The lyrics read:

This dude is coming at me
I just smile and let him be
The dude brought your own rope
He put the bullet in the gun so
I’m just gonna shimmy

Shimmy Shimmy Shimmy Shimmy
HRC
Shimmy Shimmy Shimmy Shimmy
Hillary

He just keeps on shouting, “Wrong!”
So I’ll get my Jim Halpert on
He is a flightless bird
I think I’ll never say another word
I’ll just be singing this song
