Randy Rainbow Just Took on Roy Moore and It’s Beautiful

Singing and dancing (ish) YouTube sensation Randy Rainbow has done it again–and really, it was only a matter of time. Since the allegations against Alabama Senate hopeful Roy Moore surface, linking Moore to multiple counts of sexual misconduct and child molestation, we’ve all been waiting for Moore to be fully disqualified from the race and for his name to be dragged through the dirt. Instead, we were met with a flaming endorsement from Trump himself. Surprising? Not really.

But some good has come out of this whole debacle, in that Randy Rainbow has set Moore’s plight to the tune of “Sixteen Going on Seventeen” from “The Sound of Music.” Enjoy!
