“Fiddler on the Roof” is a musical about finding happiness even in a precarious world. YouTube sensation Randy Rainbow seems to have taken a hint, producing a parody video about the Trump Administration’s challenged relationship with the truth that takes off on the “Fiddler” classic “Matchmaker, Matchmaker.”
“Fact-checker, fact-checker, find me some facts, I can’t keep up, I can’t relax. I thought facts that you fictionalize were called something else, like lies. Fact-checker, fact-checker, you be the sleuth, so many tweets, so little truth,” Rainbow sings, including footage of Kellyanne Conway and Sean Spicer telling falsehoods.
President Donald Trump and his aides have raised hackles for their readiness to indulge falsehoods, with the president wrongly claiming that the media refuses to cover terror attacks, Conway fabricating the “Bowling Green massacre” and Spicer fibbing to the press about the crowd at Trump’s inauguration.
