Watch: This Viral Election Anthem Captures What We’ve ALL Been Thinking
This election has been a whirlwind, to say the least. Mysterious emails, endless name calling and debates that make you want to scratch your eyes out. As election day creeps closer and closer, the coverage is only becoming more prominent. But leave it to Ira Glass’s ultra popular podcast This American Life to cover it in a way no one else has: via an original song performed by Hamilton star Leslie Odom Jr and written by Sara Bareilles.
The song was featured on a recent episode of TAL titled “Seriously,” which was all about the increasing divide between the two main political parties. Master songwriter Sara Bareilles penned the anthem which imagines what President Obama *might* be thinking about Donald Trump during this heated election.
The song was released when the podcast first aired on October 21, but it’s been going viral since the accompanying video was released. The internet is now responding accordingly.
