Brad Paisley Sings With Melania Trump + Michelle Obama [Watch]
Brad Paisley is well known for his funnyman antics, both on tour and at awards shows. Recently, the country singer remade his duet with Demi Lovato, "Without a Fight," to feature a hilarious mashup of campaign speeches between Melania Trump and Michelle Obama.
"Because everything's better in harmony. And because I'm an idiot. Enjoy," Paisley wrote on Twitter. He included a minute-long clip in which he juxtaposed Melania Trump's allegedly plagiarized recent campaign speech, which many have claimed borrowed too heavily from Michelle Obama's in 2008, with the First Lady's older speech.
The familiar sound of screams at a concert kicks off the clip before Obama and Trump are shown side-by-side, speaking with Auto-Tune filters. With a headline that reads: "Breaking News: Melania Trump and Michelle Obama Sing a Duet," Paisley pokes fun at the similarities between the two speeches. The speakers are shown cropped side-by-side for nearly 50 seconds, each giving the same speech before Paisley and Lovato chime in on the song's chorus.
Meanwhile, the infamous dance scene from Napoleon Dynamite is also shown alongside a man attending last week's Republican National Convention, who can also be seen getting down with some fancy footwork. Although Trump and Obama are far from having a country music career, Lovato recently confessed that it is something that may be in her future.
“I’m a big country fan, I’m actually a fan of his,” Lovato admits in a behind-the-scenes clip from the "Without a Fight" music video shoot. “I grew up listening to country music. My mom was a country singer and being able to sing it finally has been kind of like a dream come true. Hopefully I’ll be doing some more of it.”
