  • Of course these days, the news can feel,

  • well, let's face it overwhelming.

  • It's nice sometimes to mix it up

  • and have a little bit of fun

  • with things that are happening in the news.

  • That's why we have a very special guest who does just that.

  • This guy's been gently skewering politics for decades,

  • with his unique blend of light satire

  • and ragtime, piano music.

  • Your parents probably have some of his old records

  • like, Politics Phooey, and Hitting Below the Beltway.

  • Yeah.

  • Okay. I won't.

  • Yeah, I know what you mean.

  • 2020 has been a rough year,

  • which is why I'm excited to hear your satirical take

  • on the news through the power of piano music.

  • Well, I'll do my darn best.

  • How about a little diddy about the current occupant

  • of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?

  • Oh boy.

  • Song about Trump.

  • Okay great, here we go.

  • Okay, here we go.

  • Oh, Donald Trump is the president of the USA. ♪

  • And lock him up till the end of time. ♪

  • So Donald Trump stays president as God intended, so

  • Don't get me started!

  • (Tip laughing)

  • Okay, I have to say, that's not the song I expected.

  • Oh, well you sound like me

  • when I found out that Biden won Georgia.

  • Not what I expected.

  • Are you kidding me?

  • Come on, the machines had to have flipped votes.

  • Okay Tip, your songs, in the old days,

  • they were more balanced and nuanced.

  • Are you getting all your news from like Fox and Newsmax?

  • What, those radical leftists supplicants?

  • No way!

  • If you want the real truth, you've gotta dig.

  • And that's why I get all my news now

  • from this great website called christiannewspatriot.truth.

  • Would you like to hear another?

  • Uh, you know, only if you can just tone it down a bit.

  • Okay?

  • You would like me to tone it down?

  • Shall I tone it down here?

  • Or tone it all the way down here

  • (Tip laughing)

  • That's just a little musical fun.

  • But I take your meaning.

  • Very little, yeah.

  • Oh, you'll like this one.

  • This one is long on laughs and light on politics.

  • [Conan] Great.

  • Here we go.

  • It can't be debated, COVID's death rate is inflated

  • It's a big hoax

  • The vaccines were designed

  • To help Bill Gates control our minds. ♪

  • [Conan] No, hey hey hey.

  • Can you just not?

  • Please, don't sing songs like that, really.

  • Well. I was a little flat wasn't I?

  • Is that your objection?

  • It's been a little while

  • since I was allowed to perform publicly.

  • Let's try another, okay?

  • Oh, Yankee Doodle went to town

  • And was murdered by Antifa. ♪

  • [Conan] No, no, no.

  • No, no, no, no, definitely not that one.

  • Well...

  • Tip, do you have any songs

  • that have absolutely nothing to do with politics at all?

  • Oh, absolutely.

  • Yes I do.

  • I have something for the normies

  • who haven't been red pilled yet.

  • Is that what you had in mind?

  • That's fine, how 'bout this?

  • A sweet little Christmas tune.

  • Ah, Christmas tune, here we go.

  • No problem at all.

  • Ooh, we wish you a merry Christmas

  • We wish you a merry Christmas

  • We wish you a merry Christmas

  • Don't get me started on that.

  • You want to tell me that jet fuel can melt steel?

  • Okay, Tip Rivers, everybody. Since when? Since When?
