On Wednesday, during the CMA’s, even though hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley were told not to get political, they did anyway.
They started out the night with their response to the show’s warning of not bringing up politics.
Underwood stated, “Now, Brad, I don’t know if you’ve heard about this, but the CMA has given us some guidelines with specific topics to avoid. So we can’t be doing any silly little songs because this year’s show is a politics free zone.”
However, Paisley replied, “Are you kidding me? That’s not fair,” as he started listing lyrics with a political spin, such as “Way Down Yonder on the Scaramucci” and “Hold Me Closer, Bernie Sanders.”
The two eventually did a parody of Underwood’s “Before He Cheats,” about Trump’s tweeting habits.
Paisley started singing, “Right now, he’s probably in his PJs, reaching for his cellphone. Right now, he’s probably asking Siri, ‘How in the hell do you spell Pocahontas?’
“In the middle of the night from the private seat of a gold-plated White House toilet seat, he writes, ‘Liddle Bob Corker,’ ‘NFL’ and ‘covfefe,’ ” Paisley continued, before Underwood joined him.
“It’s fun to watch it, that’s for sure, until little Rocket Man starts a war. Then maybe next time he’ll think before he tweets.”
