I couldn't watch more than a few seconds because my feelings concerning accordions are similar to the Professor's regarding shorts.

EDH said...

Grab her by the squeeze box?

Birches said...

That was great.

MathMom said...

Funny! Laughing out loud, here.

Inga said...

Lord Almighty, too much caterwauling.

traditionalguy said...

OMG, he plays for the audience too. It will be hard not to watch his hands from now on.

Think of Dylan doing the harmonica as he talks his lyrics. Two master communicators.

But what will Pence play in the Band?

R.J. Chatt said...

I couldn't watch more than a few seconds either. I hate that mockery -- ignoring the importance of what he is saying and doing. It's so juvenile, like a bunch of disruptive kids in a classroom trying to distract the class from the activity of learning by mocking the teacher. As if what Trump is trying to do for the country doesn't matter. 20 trillion in debt, massive unemployment, rampant drug trafficking, illegal immigration, who cares? Let's find ways of mocking him instead.

Now that was great!

Bay Area Guy said...

I give it a B-. Maybe, a B+ for effort, and a C for execution.

It's not a bad idea, it's just not that funny -- even though accordions generally are.

Rosa Marie Yoder said...

It's not even close to be amusing, let alone funny.

An editorial note, accordion was so loud I could not hear.

I watched the "Life Accordion", and the next video clip was "Inauguration Day" from Bad Lip Reading.

Expat(ish) said...

I like a little good mockery. I missed that during the Obama years.

Once and done, though, I hate the accordion.

It's nice that it is OK to laugh at the president again.

traditionalguy said...

The hands are good communications gestures. They signal a defined area for the idea he is branding onto reality...that alternate one.

Curious George said...

Dumb.

"How come when he plays the accordion, people are impressed, but when he goes the extra mile and puts the bass drum on his back and the harmonica in his mouth, people laugh?"

Richard said...

An editorial note, accordion was so loud I could not hear.

I believe that was the purpose of doing it. They wanted to make fun of Trump, not let you hear what he had to say. Yes it was juvenile.

traditionalguy said...

All PR is good PR, even the ridicule and snark just spotlights the Orange Haired Clown as the Commander-in-Chief of the United States of America. And that in turn just makes them angrier and angrier.

But we now have Tucker Carlson to gut them for the insanity nightly.

Lighten up, RJ!

Known Unknown said...

For any accordion lovers (those rare birds) here is the wonderful Yann Tiersen.

Bay Area Guy said...

Where is Weird Al Yankovic when you really need him?

M Jordan said...

Instruments accordion to funniness quotient:

10. Jews harp
9. Ukulele
8. Washtub bass
7. Harmonica
6. Accordion
5. Sitar
4. Piano (if played with knuckles only)
3. Jews harp (funny on several levels)
2. Bottles
1. Cheek ( when snapped with forefinger)

More Life Accordion to Trump: I had to go to a regional State of Georgia Driver's License facility because they sent out a notice that they now need some Docs even for a Driver's License Renewal , such as a Passport and a Bank Statement with your address on it.

No sweat this time. The last two times I renewed, this place was a circus, plastered with lines of other strange cultures and interpreters...Maybe 300 people counting the personnel

This time there were 5 people and a third as many personnel. The wait was two minutes instead of two hours.

I joked with the lady at the counter that they were nearly without business, probably because the Borders are being enforced now. She smiled back that she knew.

Life Accordion to Trump , and the Damn Wall is not even funded yet.

Francisco D said...

That was neither funny or clever, but they tried so hard that I was amused.

Is this what Chuck and Inga do in their spare time?

Good to see you, Francisco. Inga told me that you believe I need psychiatric help. I think that perhaps she misunderstood your comment and told her I would ask you.

readering said...

Computers are amazing.

Meade said...

"3. Jews harp (funny on several levels)"

Specifically, levels 3 and 10.

Inga, the retired psychiatric nurse, knows bedpans a lot better than she knows psychiatry/psychology. Psych nurses are usually the dumbest ones in nursing school. I would not trust one to accurately take my blood pressure.

Madison Mike said...

Amazing that he can play without using the keys.:>) Is it technically an accordian or is it a ten key squeezebox such as the Irish lass Sharon Shannon plays?

5. Sitar

Sitars can be funny, but I prefer the Tom Petty style usage as to it being the main instrument.

Bill said...

The one in the cabinet meeting was especially funny.
