‘Arlington Rap Guy’ Remy Skewers Donald Trump in New Music Video

Remy Munasifi, the maestro behind the timeless Arlington Rap, has a new music video that’s sure to attract some attention.

Rather than parodying Arlington and its many brown flip flops and Starbucks, Remy has this time turned his comic crosshairs on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Borrowing the hook from Drake’s “Started From the Bottom,” Remy skewers Trump’s statement at a Today Show town hall event this week: “It has not been easy for me… I started off in Brooklyn, my father gave me a small loan of a million dollars.”

Throughout the video Remy juxtaposes Trump’s “I’m really rich” braggadocio with images of his failed business ventures.

Remy produced the music video for ReasonTV, which is part of the libertarian think tank Reason Foundation. Reason has been critical of Trump’s brand of politics, particularly his anti-immigration stances.
