Trump’s speech announcing his third presidential run already had a lot to unravel, but now it’s time for this one quick video of him being featured on Mar-A-Lago. There is still more to be clarified. First, Donald Trump and Melania Trump were introduced as the next president and first lady, which is a scary concept, and already complicated given that it’s also the titles they’ve already held before. Before the introduction, the room sang along to the song “Can you hear the people sing?”from Les Miserables.
First of all, they made the horrible choice of showing the movie Version of the song for some reason? Aaron Tveit (who played Enjolras in the movie) is wonderfully flawless, but the movie itself is a mess and honestly, what do you know? These people deserve it. But more importantly, what this video shows is what people don’t understand. Les MiserablesThey hear one song and think it applies to them.
That video also includes Lee Greenwood’s “I’m Proud to Be An American,” which is more on-brand, but a boring speech about Trump turning in papers. It’s a wild collection of songs thrown together after .
Selection of Les Miserables is… interesting for so many reasons.
what Les Miserables is about
First, everyone dies at the end so write it down. Singing a song of rebellion like this is pretty doomed. Again, this feels like someone playing a joke on Trump. Because the song was born out of the hardships faced by the French people leading up to the June Rebellion.
Musicals are divided between generations. First, we get to see Jean Valjean and the end of his prison term serving time for stealing bread. In the first part of this journey, we meet characters such as Fantine (a woman desperate for money for herself and her children) and Javert (an officer looking for Valjean).
Fantine’s child Cosette, Eponine, and the next generation of men then split into the central part (Javert and Valjean are still there). More rebellions take place in this part of the story. Young students Marius and Enjolras plan a rebellion, and spoiler alert, but it doesn’t work. But “Do You Hear the People Sing?” has a rallying cry. Inspire you to battle the wealthy elite in power.
yes not donald trump.
Like Donald Trump, like Patrick Batman
Life really feels like a parody.I have already written about american psychos Patrick Bateman’s erstwhile idolization of Donald Trump notes parallels between Trump’s growing popularity and the types of people who engage with him and admire him. because there is other What Bateman loved (besides music) was musicals Les Miserables.
I mean, I don’t know if it’s funny if someone on Donald Trump’s team was joking or if no one thought about this connection. Les Miserables It serves ironically in that it’s the exact same kind of person that the June Rebellion and those who participated in it fight back. american psycho It was highlighted in his love for both Patrick Bateman and his Les Miserables and Trump.
At this point, the only irony is the writing on the wall.
Sorry, at least the Hugh Jackman version.
A complete attack on the cast recording of a Tom Hooper movie, but this one deserves Hugh Jackman’s Jean Valjean. are you OK But at least this wasn’t from the 25th anniversary concert.
On the one hand, yes, I am obsessed with misusing this song. comeBut on the other hand, it just further emphasizes the fact that Trump is doing these things to dramatic effect.
Donald Trump really thinks he and his supporters are “the people,” but in reality he’s the exact villain that everyone has always made him to be.
